Institutional client onboarding is a complex process, oftentimes problematic and lengthy, involving approvals from many different functions across the bank. Each newly onboarded client or account must comply with all global and local regulatory obligations. These increasingly stringent regulatory demands require vast amounts of data and documentation to support compliance initiatives. The more complex a client, the longer it takes to complete KYC and other regulatory compliance processes, therefore, the longer it takes to onboard a legal entity client, leading to significant time-to-revenue and operational efficiency challenges for financial institutions.
Fenergo’s award-winning Client Lifecycle Management solution provides a single integrated platform that supports the data, documentation, rules and workflow processes required for regulatory client onboarding - including compliance with Know Your Customer / Customer Due Diligence, Anti-Money Laundering, FATCA, OTC Derivatives across US (Dodd-Frank), Europe (MiFID II and EMIR), Canada (Canadian Derivatives) and APAC (ASIC, HKMA and MAS Derivative Reform) - account opening workflow, data remediation and client off-boarding.
The Fenergo Client Lifecycle Management platform is a sophisticated, risk-based, rules-driven platform built on three core product pillars:
