In this webinar—presented in collaboration with Thomson Reuters—you will learn how to use continuous monitoring software as part of your Know Your Customer (KYC) program to reduce the time spent screening low-risk rather than high-risk customers. The webinar will also address how to limit risks by leveraging politically exposed persons (PEPs) screening and how to do so efficiently.
