In most cases, our clients engage us to fulfill specific legal or regulatory obligations and risk management procedures carried out in the public interest, in particular Swiss, EU or EU-member state anti-money laundering regulations [inter alia GAFI, Swiss AMLA]. We believe that KYC has a legitimate interest in processing data to support its clients in these objectives provided that the privacy rights of any data subject are not unduly affected.
