KYC?

Know Your Client. The checks that take place at the time of application to identify your customer and compliance with regulatory/money laundering requirements. Financial institutions are expected to maintain such checks on an ongoing basis. These mainly happen behind the scenes, but if they identify issues that appear anomalous or either can’t obtain the information they need automatically or don’t like something they see, they may seek it directly from the customer, sometimes suspending accounts in that process.
