About KYC

Know Your Customer is run by a global team of professionals specialising in risk & compliance, technology, finance and law.

How it all started


Although we all live in the 21st century and use our mobile phones for basically everything, there is one process in the whole banking and finance industry which is still manual – the process of onboarding new customers and checking them against anti-money laundering regulations. So we thought: “This is a great business, we should automate this!”, and that’s how we started.

– Claus Christensen, CEO of Know Your Customer
