Knowing your customer (KYC) is a business

Knowing your customer (KYC) is a business process to identify and validate the customer's identity. When members are close to CMME and want to participate, they are required to provide specific documents to enable CMME to identify, validate and maintain records of the business structure of the members concerned, as well as to control and own key personnel of the business. This is the so-called KYC.  CMME Group has a KYC policy which covers due diligence conducted by CMME on behalf of its members and interested parties in accordance with the Exchange Regulations and applicable SCA Regulations. The policy also outlines the obligations of CMME Group and its members in respect of KYC. Continuous reassessment of KYC information provided by members requires members to assist CMME in updating KYC information (at least once a year), if necessary. CMME Group uses the KYC framework to help prevent potential risks of financial crime, so that CMME can understand the business of its members and establish sustainable relationships.
