SWIFT announced the scheduled opening of its Know Your Customer platform, The KYC Registry, to corporates.

From Q4 2019, all SWIFT-connected corporate groups will be able to join The KYC Registry and use it to upload, maintain, and share their KYC information with their banks.

The KYC Registry is an online portal for financial institutions to exchange institutional KYC due diligence information. The platform allows banks to share KYC data and documents with their correspondents in a secure, standardized, and controlled way, as well to get access to their correspondents’ complete and validated KYC profiles.
