Know Your Customer , a Dublin-based digital solution for identity, authentication and verification of individuals and businesses for KYC and AML, is pleased to announce it has been listed in the FinTech Global RegTech 100.

The RegTech 100 companies were chosen by a group of industry experts assembled by FinTech Global who reviewed a total of 416 companies. The panel found that Know Your Customer’s  approach to helping financial institutions streamline the client on-boarding process and improve compliance with AML legislation by digitising these processes made it a worthy entry.

“We are really excited to make it on to the RegTech 100 list” Claus Christensen, CEO of Know Your Customer commented.  “This independent validation from FinTech Global is another signal that we are in the right place at the right time and that there is a real need for a solution like ours that dramatically reduces the entire on-boarding process for clients through the digitisation of KYC and AML”
