KYC & Enhanced Due Diligence
Cannabis is a high-risk industry, so the Know-Your-Customer (KYC) requirement is escalated to deeper diligence and review, called Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD). Banks must know and understand their clients to succeed in cannabis banking. It's not enough to know that the client exists. Banks must also understand whether or not that client is a potential risk to the bank and the financial system.
Anti Money Laundering (AML) & Risk Mitigation
Because marijuana is still illegal on a federal level, these businesses can’t open bank accounts or accept credit card or debit card payments with many nationwide banks. If a dispensary can't accept payment from clients in the digital age, it must rely exclusively on cash transactions. This makes legal dispensaries targets for thieves who know there are large sums of cash on the premises, making it ideal for money laundering.
Additionally, banks must take a close look at the beneficial ownership of the business itself. Dispensaries have to undergo a licensing process to operate in their local community. Whooster Data Solutions provides banks and financial institutions with the intelligence to review the business’ licensing materials and registration procedures for potential red flags.
This data can also shed light on the business’ beneficial owners, including angel investors who are not involved in daily business operations but provide them with significant funding. Banks must ensure the people connected to the business are not a high risk.
Customer Due Diligence (CDD)
Cannabis, including marijuana and hemp, continues to challenge many risk and compliance professionals of financial institutions. These team members need additional monitoring and governance to address and mitigate the associated risks through Customer Due Diligence (CDD) processes. Whether it’s identifying an individual or business as the starting point, how can you vet them if you don’t know who you are dealing with? Gathering essential identifying information and validating that information is the first step to CDD compliance and reducing risk.
