Onboarding & KYC Deep Dive



The Onboarding & KYC Deep Dive has now passed, but keep an eye out as we will be taking interest for the Onboarding & KYC Deep Dive 2025 very soon. 

Join the virtual Onboarding & KYC Deep Dive

Onboarding a client to a bank is a rigorous process of checks that ultimately decide on whether a client is able to access products and open an account with a bank. The need for rigorous KYC standards is entrenched in high regulatory pressure with one study by the European Parliament emphasising that fraud was costing €990 bn a year. As such, fines for financial institutions have dramatically increased, totaling almost $5bn USD in 2022. KYC checks are therefore imperative to a bank’s anti-money laundering (AML) policy, yet this is an incredibly manual and labour intensive process. Banks must therefore look towards emerging technologies and automating low value-added tasks to improve efficiency and effectiveness around onboarding and KYC.

How the Deep Dives work


  • A series of interactive pre-booked roundtable discussions between financial institutions, moderated by 1LoD
  • An inter-delegate messaging system


Private, off the record roundtables are moderated by 1LoD, and attended by delegates from financial institutions who have booked their place in advance. They take place on Zoom. Delegates are sent discussion topics, and an overall structure of the debate in advance to assist the flow of the discussion.
