Our story

Once upon a time

There was a need. The land of the MSBs and emerging payments FinTech had no source for quality and affordable sanction screening solutions. Solutions were either too low-quality data resulting in fines, or much data resulting in over-screening and false positives.

MSBs were unhappy.

.. and then

KYC2020 quickly realized that cost of screening was largely dependent on the cost of data. Virtually every quality screening solution in the land was sourcing data from one of the only two very expensive data providers (we won't name them here).

KYC2020 to the rescue...

We decided to build our own database.

We built and built and then built some more. After four years and over 900 checklists from over 127 countries, we can confidently say that we have the most comprehensive and affordable watchlist data for the small enterprise and emerging payments innovators.

The Beginning

All the MSBs and SMEs stopped over-screening and started paying for only the lists they needed per their risk-based approach for AML compliance.

Customer onboarding and recurring review became fast, and everyone was happy.

Overview of Supported Lists

With over 900 Lists, KYC2020 has got you covered.

These lists are the base line for any KYC list screening tool. KYC2020 has the vast majority of these and include the 37 member countries and organizations which are part of the FATF. Many of the 180+ observing member’s lists are also available and more will become available over time.

These lists are based on the publically available data on politicians around the world. KYC2020 now includes over 198 countries at the Federal level. In addition, as governments adopt a more “open” policy for providing this information in a structured format, it will be more readily available to add to the list screening tool. This is in fact the example KYC2020 added Canada OpenGov list of all Federal, Provincial and Municipal politicians is a good example of larger open data sets of lists.

The FAFT has mandated that heads of international organizations be identified as potential for corruption in a similar way PEPs are today. They have gone further and stated that directors and major shareholders be identified and screen as well. Not to say that these persons are corrupt, just that the compliance officer be aware of the individual is acting on behalf of an inter-governmental organization or major corporation, and act accordingly as part of their AML regime. These lists are vast and many are publically available at most stock exchanges, and government related corporation sites.

Most, if not all, FATF members have a list of enforcement actions taken against an individual and/or entity in their jurisdiction. KYC2020 has implemented most of these, and as other members make their lists public, they will be added to ensure that the most up to date lists are available for KYC list screening.

Criminal lists such as RCMP, FBI, Interpol are available as well as Miscellaneous lists such No-Fly, Sex Offenders, etc.
