Solving the KYC Puzzle for
Funds + Fund Administrators

Funds and Fund Administrators need to understand why their industry is high risk for banks - especially with vulnerabilities to financial crime - and, more importantly, how they can comply with Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations to alleviate this risk. 

This session will provide tactical and actionable insights on and frameworks that can be used for risk assessments, best practices for KYC collection and screening to get started quickly, and the ideal processes that help with controlling your own legal entity structure and responding to the countless KYC questionnaires from banks.

"Sanctions definitely come into play quickly... If you don't have the right infrastructure, technology, resources, the right team, how can you implement it, monitor it, report on it?"

"So in our world, in the Funds world... as a director, I have the ultimate liability and responsibility as a board member, and I have to make sure that - to the best of my ability - the underlying parties to the fund, the fund manager, the fund administrator and the parties within that fund are able to discharge their duties in the manner that we need from the fund's perspective. So ongoing monitoring. Ongoing, reporting.

Do we have the right providers in the fund - based on the strategy of the fund, based on the domicile of the investors - can the custodians, the brokers, the fund admins... Can they move quickly when sanctions and these things come into place?"
