KYC means “Know your customer”. It describes the process of verifying the identity of our customers. In other words, we must make sure that our customers are genuinely who they claim to be. The KYC process is performed to prevent illegal activities such as money laundering or fraud, in return protecting both company and you (our customer). KYC process includes identity verification and collection of additional information/documentation.
