Different templates can be created as the software has the appropriate flexibility embedded within it. Laven Partners’ software is designed to combine subject matter expertise with technology. The software will support any modules for example for MiFID/MiFID II or US FINRA rules, as well as any client-specific KYC procedures.

How does the KYC Assistant software work?

The software is built so that each potential client user of the licensees has their own account and complete the on-boarding process saving time to the licensee whilst ensuring complete process control.

An example of how the process may be organised is shown on the following diagram:

Licensees have complete live oversight on their clients’ progress from anywhere. In addition, licensees are notified via e-mail about any comments or questions that the client user may have posted.

Once a potential client has provided all the relevant information, the licensee can then publish the answers into a report. All reports and supplemental information are kept through the software’s document repository section.

Some of Laven Partners’ KYC Assistant key features:

  • Customisable scope to allow each licensor to gather all necessary information from basic contact details to the ownership structure to specific client requirements and needs
