Know Your Client
This is where we get to know you and is a process of identifying and verifying the client's identity when opening a corporate bank account. This is an important process and will help to expedite the bank account opening process.
We will understand your business and guide you with the right bank selection to meet your banking needs. Here we will ask you questions about your planned banking, your business activity, the Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) and your expected bank transactions
Bank Account Application
We will work with you to prepare the bank account application and ensure that it will meet the bank's needs. We will then proceed to submit the bank account opening application to the bank. During this stage our team will engage very closely with the banks on your behalf to ensure bank account opening success
We will monitor and follow-up regularly with the bank until the process is completed. Once approved our local banking team will ensure that everything is in place including the provision of banking tokens, and coordinating the initial bank account opening deposit.
