Know your customer
Know your customer (KYC) is an international convention practised by
banks and other public companies to validate the identity of people and
companies with whom they do business. The practice is in place to help
prevent identity theft fraud, money laundering and financing of
undesirable entities such as terrorist groups etc.
Stanbic IBTC Bank is committed to a eradicating fraud and criminal
activity. As such, we are required to obtain proof of identity from all
our clients. Whenever you transact with the bank you will need to
produce a valid driver's licence, national ID card or passport as proof
In some instances, such as when opening an account, you will also need
to produce proof of residential address and source of funds. A public
utility bill, issued no longer than six months prior to your application
for a new account, will be accepted as proof of residence.
These measures are in place to protect both the bank and our customers.
