KYC made easy

US AML rules are constantly changing, and it can be challenging to keep pace with all the latest requirements, but with SmartSearch you never need to worry about being caught out. Our easy-to-use online CIP platform makes running KYC checks easy, but not only that, it hosts all search data and checks it every night against the Dow Jones WatchList to ensure a fully compliant position at all times. 

SmartSearch uses multiple data sources to verify identities and screen for bad actors, while the latest facial recognition and liveness technology gives financial institutions the confidence that your customers are who they say they are. 

What’s more, the platform is constantly being updated to ensure it meets the latest regulations meaning you never have to worry about updating your system to meet requirements.

WHO WE WORK WITH

Serving financial institutions across the US

  • Which US businesses need to run identity verification checks?

    Under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) all US financial institutions are required to work with Government agencies to detect, deter, prevent and disrupt money laundering.

    They must have a risk-based AML program in place, consisting of appropriate customer due diligence (CDD), record-keeping and ongoing monitoring, a key part of which is a secure and reliable Customer Identification Program.

  • Why is identity verification so important?

    Under the USA Patriot Act, all financial institutions must have a Customer Identification Program (CIP) to verify the identity of any individuals or businesses wishing to conduct financial transactions with them. These verification checks are an essential part of a risk-based AML program in order to identify potential high-risk clients that could make the financial institution vulnerable to money laundering and other financial crime.  

  • How is SmartSearch different from other Customer Identification Programs?

    SmartSearch is an innovative online identification verification solution that makes customer onboarding fast, effective and secure. Our automated online CIP platform enables financial institutions to verify the identities of all customers - individual and corporate - and screen against Global Watchlists in a matter of seconds, enabling clients to onboard customers and meet BSA and Patriot Act requirements all from one system.

We can help you to…

Meet BSA regulations

Our platform helps financial institutions understand FinCEN anti money laundering requirements ensuring they take a risk-based approach to meet BSA, CCD Final Rule, AMLA and USA Patriot Act obligations.

Verify Identities

SmartSearch identifies and verifies customers, screening for sanctions and PEPs and then automatically runs enhanced due diligence if any warnings are highlighted, ensuring you are always aware of any potential risks to your business.

Onboard customers

SmartSearch can be integrated with your existing CIP and you can run KYC checks from your cell phone or tablet, enabling you to complete the required customer due diligence at onboarding, cutting costs, saving time and improving customer experience.

Automatic data hosting

Every KYC search you complete is automatically hosted on the system to ensure water-tight record keeping. We can even retrospectively upload client data to your CIP to ensure there are no gaps in your compliance record.

Monitor clients

Initial identity verification, screening and KYC checks are essential, but they are not enough to stay compliant - you also need to be aware of any changes in the risk profile of your customers. That is why SmartSearch monitors all search data every night to guarantee a fully compliant CIP.

Prevent fraud

SmartSearch offers a range of anti-fraud services that can be tailored to any financial institution’s needs, while our facial recognition and liveness technology checks ensure ID fraud is never an issue.

Identify bad actors

Our comprehensive KYC program enables you to identify and verify customers, using the latest facial recognition and liveness technology to ensure the ID matches the person. We then screen against sanctions and PEPs to weed out any bad actors.

Identify Ultimate Business Owners

The SmartSearch business checks service not only enables you to run KYC checks on corporate customers but can also identify and verify the Ultimate Business Owners ensuring financial institutions know exactly who they are transacting with.
