Know your Customer 同亚洲及世界各地的金融机构语言共通

当今世界,几乎所有金融流程都已经在某种程度上实现自动化,但开户和针对新客户的反洗钱调查仍然大多由人力完成,耗时可长达26天。为此,两年半前创立于香港的Know Your Customer(与反洗钱措施“了解你的客户Know Your Customer”同名)公司开发出一套高科技解决方案,用于验证新客户所提供的原始文件的真实性,节省开户时间,最短可至一天。 “我们以技术合作伙伴的形式,为银行、法律、保险、会计和其它需要高效客户身份验证的行业服务,” Know Your Customer公司共同创始人兼CEO克劳斯·克里斯腾森(Claus Christensen)说。“当初,我们在别的地方遭遇到身份验证难题,觉得应该可以用技术来加以解决。于是我们花了18个月的时间开发出一款产品,去年正式推向市场。” 与金融机构语言共通 市场对此款产品的反应积极,但初期订单增长缓慢。 “我们很快发现,市场对这款产品有需求,也愿意出资购买,但我们也发现,向金融机构销售产品没有向其它行业销售那么简单,”克里斯滕森补充说。 “你需要通晓企业全方位运营的销售人员,他们必须说金融机构的内行话。我们组建了这样一支销售队伍,但销售周期依然长达六到九个月。这对Know Your Customer这样的新创企业来说相当艰难。但无路如何,一年之后我们就有了19个付费客户。我们的产品已经从市场培育期进入收费增长期。” 国际市场将成为公司未来发展的主要推动力。 “爱尔兰贸易与科技局(“Enterprise Ireland)[主管出口的国家机构]给予我们大力支持,为我们同国外企业牵线搭桥,”克里斯滕森说。“这个组织对新创企业的帮助太大了。首先,它向我们注资25万英镑,向市场发出我们这个企业不容小觑的强烈信号。此外,它这样做也吸引了其它投资者的目光。爱尔兰贸易与科技局还为我们进行挑选合适的行业展会,带我们参展,介绍我们认识潜在客户。我们来亚洲,他们功不可没。” 在亚洲构建金融科技合作伙伴关系 克里斯滕森认为,亚洲对像Know Your Customer这样的监管科技企业(regtech companies)来说很有吸引力。 “这里有严明的监管,而我们正是为监管而生,”他指出。“此外,英语也是香港和新加坡的通行语言。这么一考量,亚洲就很有吸引力。去年我们去新加坡参加过展会,后来又去了香港。爱尔兰贸易与科技局的官员们在香港金融科技界( fintech industry)如鱼得水,为我们介绍相关人士,陪我们拜访客户。” 2018年上半年,克里斯滕森加入香港的金融科技加速器(Fintech Supercharger accelerator)项目,三个月后成功退出。…
