Emerging Technologies and Trends in Identity Verification, KYC, and KYB Report 2024

Report, published: May 2024

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. Also, 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 are reshaping security.

Priorities with KYC and KYB

Amidst these challenges, 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 tackle these? By trialling and investing in new tech solutions, partnering with or acquiring expertise, 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 2024 addresses these concerns, offering insights and solutions to FIs and regulated entities from payment and security experts on the latest trends and developments in KYC, KYB, and IDV.
