Know your customer (KYC)

KYC (also known as ‘Customer Due Diligence’) is the identification and verification of a client’s customers. KYC is a mandatory, legal requirement for all accounts whether consumer or corporate.

KYC incorporates the verification of identity, the understanding of client’s business and the purpose and understanding of a customer’s usage of a financial product and is an important element of the Contis Anti Money Laundering policy.

Consumer KYC

  • Referred applicants are sent an email and must provide additional documentation for manual review
  • A sanctions check against relevant list must be performed
  • It is also necessary to perform checks on ‘Politically Exposed Persons’ (PEPs)

Corporate KYC

  • Contis will verify the identity of the client and the purpose of their business
  • Every client is required to provide documentation for themselves and each associated corporate business for Compliance approval
  • A Product Specification is created detailing the purpose of the programme
  • An Anti Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Risk Assessment form is completed for Compliance review.

SCA / Authentication

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is a requirement of the European Payment Services Directive (PSD2) to reduce fraud by asking customers for additional verification when transacting online.

Contis offers two solutions to enable customers to authenticate simply and easily: single and multi authentication.

Payroll services

Contis APIs can provide any business that makes payments with a sleek Faster Payments based payroll solution. Save huge amounts of time against manual CSV uploads and reduce the risk of fraud and data breaches by automating the process. This solution is also effective for IR35 compliant umbrella companies looking to speed up and automate outdated payroll processes.

Fraud management

For transaction monitoring and fraud prevention, Contis has implemented Featurespace’s ARIC Risk Hub, a real time dynamic financial crime monitoring platform.

ARIC, a best in class solution, is deployed by some of the world’s largest banks, payment processors and merchant acquirers to identify fraud on their banking and payments platforms, enabling prompt and effective mitigation to be put in place.

Like the rest of Contis’ platform, ARIC is highly configurable and capable of being adapted to run programme-specific ‘rules+’ based monitoring and decisioning. 

Platform uptime

Our systems are extremely reliable: our platform boasts 99.99% uptime. This high performance allows us to guarantee operational peace of mind for our clients and a seamless experience to consumers. 

PCI DSS Level 1

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organisations that handle branded credit cards from the major card schemes. The standard was created to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce card fraud. There are four levels of PCI Compliance and these are based on how much you process per year, as well as other details about the level of risk assessed by payment brands. Level 1 is the highest level.
