Frictionless KYC
& Onboarding

Intelligent data to onboard and monitor any business, fast.

Arachnys accelerates onboarding by providing the best global KYC and AML data. Enriched, automated data enables straight-through processing and means fewer customer touchpoints, less risk and quicker revenue.

Industry-wide problems


Banks are losing money because the ‘time to revenue’ for customer onboarding is too long. The overall onboarding time for corporate banking customers is a staggering 90-120 days* (Oliver Wyman).

Banks are still relying on huge compliance teams to manually deal with remediation backlogs and ongoing monitoring issues. There's now an average of 307 deployed KYC employees* (Thomson Reuters).

The onboarding and review processes cause friction resulting in a poor customer experience. 85% of corporates have not had a good KYC experience, resulting in 12% changing banks* (Thomson Reuters).

White Paper: Achieving Perpetual KYC

How close is the financial world to achieving perpetual KYC?

Oliver Wyman shared with us their Global KYC benchmarking study on Global Banking & Markets KYC, which has found that the overall onboarding time for corporate banking customers is a staggering 90-120 days.

In this white paper, , we look at how banks can reduce onboarding times, KYC refresh costs and improve the customer experience by leveraging better technology and automation across the three pillars of data:

  • Driving efficiency with self-reported customer data
  • Using automation to capture & screen external data
  • Reducing risk through monitoring transaction behaviour
