Tuesday 31 January 2023 12:14 CET | News

AI platform for third-party risk management Owlin has launched an end-to-end know your customer solution for payment service providers to manage the merchant journey.


As detailed in the announcement, Owlin for KYC aims to provide PSPs with a single solution for the onboarding, monitoring, and offboarding of merchants. With the launch of this product, the company is looking to assist PSPs with some of their most pressing priorities related to meeting regulatory requirements and dealing with the uncertainties that are a result of current economic developments.

Merchant onboarding and how the KYC solution falls into place

Based on information provided in the press release, the Owlin for KYC solution enables PSPs to screen their merchants against a multitude of data sources of the likes of adverse media, sanctions, politically exposed persons (PEPs), and customer reviews. 

With this offering, the company aims to significantly improve KYC processes, particularly for PSPs who carry out manual screenings of merchants against different data sources in order to check for risk within their merchant portfolio.

Owlin for KYC helps support a ‘seamless’ transition from the onboarding phase to continuous monitoring, with all the data that is associated with both the onboarding and monitoring steps being retained and available as an end-to-end audit trail.

When commenting on the announcement, officials advised that following conversations with their existing PSP clients and prospect base, the company gained knowledge on the challenges they face with meeting regulatory requirements. In the past couple of months, the company had a focus on the existing onboarding and compliance workflows, looking to design a PSP offering that would meet the requirements for the future.

With this goal at its basis, the company launched their end-to-end KYC solution for PSPs in a direct response to their customers’ wish of combining Owlin’s adverse media monitoring with onboarding and auditability support. Following the introduction of this product, the company believes that they are now positioned to offer clients a single solution that meets their operational onboarding and monitoring needs, supported by an extensive framework that is set to meet their regulatory requirements.
