Real-Time KYC Automation

Know Your Client processes have never been this easy. Automating onboarding and KYC forms means these processes become personalized, digital workflows. The end result is a dramatically better client experience, significant time savings, and improved compliance reporting.

How It Works

  1. Prefill client information. Smart validation and data feeds ensure phone numbers and addresses are entered correctly.
  2. After the prefiling step, custom notes are sent to the signatories. Built-in e-signatures are secure and intuitive.
  3. Clients are notified and easily complete their onboarding forms on a computer or phone. Mako only shows your clients the sections they need to complete, depending on their circumstances.
  4. The client reviews the form, adds any required information, and provides supporting documents by upload or with their phone camera. We produce all required onboarding forms instantly.
  5. Data is stored and harmonized to automatically pre-fill future KYC forms and other documents. You track, review and approve forms and ID/AML lookup results in your Mako dashboard, onboarding clients without in-person meetings.

Sub-Doc Workflows

Hassle-Free Subscription Agreements

The end result is a solution that makes it easier to invest and less expensive to administer.

Case Study with an Edmonton-based Portfolio Management Firm

“Even before a call, just doing my prep, I could see what I needed to ask and what points would be the most important to discuss with the client when I hadn’t even spoken to them yet. That’s huge versus going and meeting a client for the first time and having no sense of who they are, or how they feel about investing. It just helps us make a much better assessment.”

“When we’ve talked with other advisors, we know that with other systems an account can take upwards of two weeks to open. With Mako, it can take sometimes 15 or 20 minutes to get an account opened at the carrying broker, where you can start putting money into the client’s account and doing transactions.”

“When you have to repaper 3,000 clients, it’s impossible. [With Mako] it’s much easier for the administrative team to fill out and send documents to clients faster and in bulk. Advisors have a more efficient process, whereas before it would get complicated through emails. We love the ease of using the product (inputting clients data, preloading data, bulk workflows etc.), and also love the team at Mako.”
“Quicker communication has made our process a lot simpler. Also, it gives clients access to their account details in an easier way since we use multiple custodians, and cuts down the number of questions we receive from clients”
"Western Pacific Trust Company has been using the Mako system daily. Their Plan Administration department uses the customized digital onboarding solution for clients to complete and submit the documents online to open self-administered registered plans at WPTC. The efficiencies in the system have been a huge help for their team."
