Risk-Based Approach to KYC

Client acceptance is a critical activity in AML compliance. Every new Client accepted by an institution provides the individual with an entry point to local and international financial systems. Client acceptance, thus, becomes the first step in controlling money laundering and terrorist financing.

Regulatory guidelines stipulate that a sound KYC program should determine the true identity and existence of the customer and the risk associated with the customer. It is imperative that institutions capture information about their customers’ background, sources of funds, business, domicile and financial products used by them and how these are delivered to them in order to properly understand their risk profile.

Encouragingly, 88 per cent of respondents reported that they are adopting a risk based approach to account opening, and hence KYC, with another 8 per cent actively considering moving towards it.

With the multitude of requirements by different regulators around the globe, specifically when entering into correspondent financial relationships, Indian financial institutions may have adopted a risk-based approach earlier than expected and before regulations mandated it. For local business of multinational financial institutions this would not be the case as they often adopt global policies and procedures, hence, they follow global best practices and standards.

As customer risk rating and KYC drives enhanced due diligence and ongoing monitoring it is critical that organizations conduct a comprehensive assessment to understand the risks associated with their business and customers. This in turn will provide a basis upon which associated policies and procedures can be developed.

 

Risk Assessment

The Company has risk assessment mechanism to identify money laundering and terrorist financing risk assess and take effective measures to mitigate them with respect to our clients, countries or geographical areas, nature and volume of transactions, payment methods used by our clients, etc.

Our risk assessment process consider all the relevant factors before determining the level of overall risk and the appropriate level and type of mitigation to be applied and assessment is documented and updated regularly and made available to competent authorities and self-regulating bodies, as and when required.

 

The parameters of clients into Clients of Special Category (as given below) may be classified as higher risk and higher degree of due diligence and regular update of KYC profile should be performed.

Category – A: Low Risk

Category – B: Medium Risk

Category – C: High Risk, should be classified as

 

Category “A” clients are those pose low or nil risk. They are good corporate / HNIs who have a respectable social and financial standing. These are the clients who make payment on time and take delivery of shares.

Category “B” clients are those who are intra-day clients or speculative clients. These are the clients who maintain running account with the Company.

Category “C” clients are those who have defaulted in the past, have suspicious background, do not have any financial status, etc.

 

Acceptance of Clients through Risk-Based Approach:

The clients may be of a higher or lower risk category depending on circumstances such as the customer’s background, type of business relationship or transaction etc. We should apply each of the clients due diligence measures on a risk sensitive basis. We should adopt an enhanced customer due diligence process for higher risk categories of customers. Conversely, a simplified customer due diligence process may be adopted for lower risk categories of customers. In line with the risk-based approach, we should obtain type and amount of identification information and documents necessarily dependent on the risk category of a particular customer.

 

Clients of Special Category (CSC):

CSC Clients include the following:

  1. Non-resident clients (NRI);
  2. High Net worth clients (HNI)

  9. Non-face to face clients;
  10. Clients with dubious reputation as per public information available etc.

  • Where no natural person is identified under clauses (b) or (c) above, the identity of the relevant natural person who holds the position of senior managing official.

iv. For Foreign Investors

 

The Company dealing with foreign investors’ viz., Foreign Institutional Investors, Sub Accounts and Qualified Foreign Investors for the purpose of identification of beneficial ownership of the client, it will follow the risk based due diligence approach as prescribed by SEBI Master Circular on AML No. CIR/ISD/AML/3/2010 dated December 31, 2010.

 

Also, they shall conduct ongoing client due diligence based on the risk profile and financial position of the clients as prescribed in Annexure A of SEBI Circular CIR/MIRSD/ 11 /2012 dated September 5, 2012.

 

Further the company will also adhere to the following while identifying the clients:

For customers that are legal persons or entities, it is required to (i) verify the legal status of the legal person/ entity through proper and relevant documents (ii) verify that any person purporting to act on behalf of the legal person/entity is so authorized and identify and verify the identity of that person, (iii) understand the ownership and control structure of the customer and determine who are the natural persons who ultimately control the legal person. Customer identification requirements in respect of a few typical cases, especially, legal persons requiring an extra element of caution.
  1. In the event of matching any particulars of designated individuals/entities, we will inform the full particular of the funds, financial assets or economic resources or related services held in the form of securities, within 24 hours to the joint secretary (IS.I) Ministry of Home Affairs, at a given fax / phone number and email id and will also send the same to the email id and address of SEBI.

  1. We have been noting failure by prospective client to provide satisfactory evidence of identity and same to be reported to the higher authority within the organization.

 

(C) Transaction monitoring and reporting especially Suspicious Transactions Reporting

Ongoing monitoring is an essential element of effective KYC procedures. We can effectively control and reduce the risk only if the companies have an understanding of the normal and reasonable activity of the client so that they have the means of identifying transactions that fall outside the regular pattern of activity. However, the extent of monitoring will depend on the risk sensitivity of the account. Special attention is required to pay to all complex, unusually large transactions and all unusual patterns which have no apparent economic or visible lawful purpose. For the purpose of monitoring of transaction under PMLA following should be taken care of:

  1. we will examine the background and the purpose of transactions which are complex or unusually large/ with patterns which appear to have no economic purpose/ which exceed the limits specified for the relevant class of client accounts, and record the findings in writing; make available such findings, records and related documents to auditors, SEBI, Stock Exchanges, FIUIND, other relevant authorities during audit, inspection or as and when required.
  2. we will submit cash Transactions Report (CTR) wherever applicable, for each month by 15th of the succeeding month to FIU-IND
  3. We will submit Suspicious Transaction Report (STR) within 7 days of arriving at a conclusion that any transaction are of suspicious nature to FIU-IND
  4. To preserve records involving CTR/STR for ten years as required under PMLA, 2002

  6. We have not been allowing any cash transaction with client.
  7. We regularly monitor the transactions for generation of alerts for identification of suspicious transactions.

The Principal Officer would act as a central reference point in facilitating onward reporting of suspicious transactions and for playing an active role in the identification and assessment of potentially suspicious transactions.

 

(D) Risk Management

The Board of Directors of the company ensure that an effective KYC programme is put in place by establishing appropriate procedures and ensuring their effective implementation covering proper management oversight, systems and controls, segregation of duties, training and other related matters. Responsibilities are explicitly allocated within the company for ensuring that the Company’s policies and procedures are implemented effectively. The company, in consultation with boards, has decided to devise procedures for creating Risk Profiles of the existing and new customers and apply various Anti Money Laundering measures keeping in view the risks involved in a transaction, account or business relationship.

As The internal audit and compliance functions have an important role in evaluating and ensuring adherence to the KYC policies and procedures, the compliance function should provide an independent evaluation of the Company’s own policies and procedures, including legal and regulatory requirements. The company will appoint and conduct Concurrent/ Internal Audits on specific intervals that will specifically check and verify the application of KYC procedures at the branches and will comment on the lapses observed in this regard. The compliance in this regard may be put up before the Board on quarterly intervals.

The company will conduct an ongoing employee training programme so that all the staff are adequately trained in KYC procedures. Training requirements should have different focuses for frontline staff, compliance staff and staff dealing with new clients. It is crucial that all those concerned fully understand the rationale behind the KYC policies and implement them consistently

Implementation of KYC procedures requires the company to demand certain information from client which may be of personal in nature or which has hitherto never been called for. This can sometimes lead to a lot of questioning by the client as to the motive and purpose of collecting such information. There is, therefore, the company will educate, from time to time, the customer of the objectives of the KYC programme.

(E) RECORD KEEPING:

 

For the purpose of the record keeping provision, we should ensure compliance with the record keeping requirements contained in the SEBI Act, 1992, Rules and Regulations made there-under, PLM act, 2002 as well as other relevant legislation, Rules, Regulations, Exchange Bye-laws and Circulars. Records to be maintained should be sufficient to permit reconstruction of individual transactions (including the amounts and type of currencies involved, if any) so as to provide, if necessary, evidence for prosecution of criminal behavior. Should there be any suspected drug related or other laundered money or terrorist property, the competent investigating authorities would need to trace through the audit trail for reconstructing financial profile of the suspect’s account. To enable this reconstruction, Organization should retain the following information for the accounts of their customers in order to maintain a satisfactory audit trail.

  1. The beneficial owner of the account;
  2. The volume of the funds flowing through the account; and
