As an AML superhero, you know that Know Your Business (KYB) is a critical process for staying compliant with anti-money laundering (AML) regulations. But how can you streamline the process and perform KYB like a pro?

In this blog post, I’ll share some tips on how to use the Vespia Platform to verify business customers and stay AML compliant with ease.

The six steps of Know Your Business (KYB)

At Vespia, we divide KYB into a six-step process that begins with verifying the company’s information and ends with monitoring. Here are the six steps to follow:

Step 1: Verification of company information

Firstly, ensure that the company exists and is registered.

Step 2: UBO and Shareholder discovery

Identify the founders, shareholders, and ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs) of the company.

Step 3: PEP, Sanctions, Adverse media screening

Run the most important entities inside the company against AML lists to check for any red flags.

Step 4: ID check of founders and representatives

Verify the identities of the founders, UBOs, and representatives.

Step 5: Risk assessment and decision making

Assess the risks, taking into account your own risk appetite.

Step 6: Monitoring

Regularly review your business relationships to ensure they remain compliant and aligned with your risk appetite.
