This advanced KYC course continues on the foundation obtained from our KYC basic course or otherwise. This KYC course dives deeper into more complex scenarios that may occur in know-your-customer KYC checks and how to deal with these complex cases.

Complex scenarios include enhanced due diligence high risk cases, cases with politically exposed persons (PEP), adverse media or any other per se high risk factors. Complex ownership strucutres and ownership drilldown with more complex scenarios with differentiating capital and voting rights will also be covered in this advanced KYC course.

While the KYC basic course provides a great introduction in into the subject of know-your-customer without overwhelming participants with too much detail and depth, this advanced KYC course does just that. Depth, practicability using fictional cases and assignments and more complex content make this course ideal for KYC analysts looking to expand their knowledge further.

After completing this advanced KYC course participants will be ready to handle even complex cases with complex ownership structures including many intermediate beneficial owners (IBO’s). The dominiation and accumulation calculation methods are thoroughly explained in this advanced KYC course to ensure that you never miss out a ultimate beneficial owner (UBO).

Screening is another highly important aspect of know-your-customer (KYC) and is also covered in detail in this advanced KYC course. Understanding the difference between a true hit and a false hit for adverse media is essential and makes the difference between a low/medium risk and a high risk case. Understand how to interpret news and media coverage on a company efficiently and accurately.
