The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has underlined the need to manage Know Your Customer risks on a global scale. The Committee issued a paper on 6th October to provide guidance for banks on this topic – ‘Consolidated KYC risk management’. The paper addresses the need for banks to be able to share information with their head offices and it urges jurisdictions in which legal impediments remain to remove them.
