The Paypers Unveils Comprehensive Report on Emerging Technologies and Trends in Identity Verification, KYC, and KYB

What is happening?

Rising interest rates, tech sector layoffs, geopolitical tensions, and recession concerns impacting livelihoods have presented significant challenges for businesses. Generative AI advancements have facilitated fraud automation, amplified fraud, and cyberattack instances, while regulatory changes like AML, KYC, eIDAS 2.0, and MiCA have driven compliance leaders towards efficient tech solutions. At the same time, diverse payment methods necessitate faster financial crime prevention systems. Still, trends like verifiable credentials, digital wallets, passwordless solutions, and the use of data analytics and AI reshape security and investment sectors.

Priorities with KYC and KYB

Amidst these dynamics, the industry focuses on four key priorities: expedited customer onboarding, compliance, fraud prevention, and cost reduction.

How can banks, fintechs, regulated entities, and other players address these concerns? By trialling and investing in new tech solutions, partnering with expert solution providers or acquiring expertise themselves, developing in-house products or seeking help, learning from peers, and staying in the know. The Emerging Technologies and Trends in Identity Verification, KYC, and KYB Report offers FIs and regulated entities insights and solutions from payment and security experts on the 2024 trends and developments in KYC, KYB, and IDV.

What to expect in the report
