Established in Hong Kong in 2015, Know Your Customer was founded by Claus Christensen, Richard Barrett and Cormac Doddy. The three co-founders, whose combined experience ranged from real estate and property development to IT and business strategy, joined forces to build a state of the art platform and revolutionise the world of KYC compliance. Their mission was to fully digitise and streamline the onboarding process for both corporate and individual customers, improving efficiency and strengthening compliance.
With offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, and Dublin and team members across 17 different countries, Know Your Customer has quickly established a global presence and a reputation for excellence. Our clients span across 11 sectors – including banking, FinTech, insurance, payments, real estate, asset management, legal, among others – and 18 jurisdictions and are using our technology to verify and onboard customers from more than 180 countries.
