Posted Oct 12, 2017 - Requisition No. 62658

Know Your Counterparty (KYC) has evolved around regulatory requirement to understand the entities and individuals with whom one conducts business. While the steps imposed for KYC are commonly seen as painful, inefficient and unsustainable, the cost of delays and regulatory breaches can result in significant fines and opportunity cost.

Many have wondered if data and technology could be used to reduce the pain, the costs or the risk. Or better yet – to help firms improve their bottom line by pursuing opportunities faster, achieving scale or growing relationships?
The answer is yes.

Launched in 2015, KYC is a startup business within Enterprise Solutions that leverages Bloomberg's core strengths to help clients reduce time-to-trade, allowing them to make more money faster and to manage their KYC responsibilities more efficiently with lower operating costs and greater due diligence.
