iSignthis Ltd (ASX:ISX) to Provide Ixaris with Digital KYC Service to Verify UBOs

Melbourne, Australia, Aug 1, 2016 - (ABN Newswire) - iSignthis Ltd (ASX:ISX.AX - News) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with the global payments expert, Ixaris. Ixaris is one of the world's most flexible and extensible payment technologies, providing businesses with perfect fit payment solutions.

Highlights:

- iSignthis executes agreement with the global payments platform, Ixaris.

- iSignthis Digital KYC service to be integrated with Ixaris within the next 8 weeks.

iSignthis will integrate its Digital Know Your Customer (KYC) service in the coming months to provide Ixaris with remote identity verification and compliance to the EU's 4th AML Directive, which takes effect in 2017.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations require not only the end consumer to be identified, but also the directors, ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs) and key controllers of entities that act in the delivery chain of AML regulated services. Typically, partners will have their directors and key controllers identified by use of publicly available information, with specialist providers often used to identify UBOs. Whilst these providers can identify the UBOs, they are often unable to verify the identity of the UBOs.

Ixaris has contracted with iSignthis for the provision of identity verification services of directors, UBOs and key controllers associated with its partners with a fee payable to iSignthis for each identity verified. The verification of customers being issued with Ixaris cards is not within the current scope of the agreement.

Ixaris Head of Compliance, Charlotte Roberts commented "We're pleased to have entered into this agreement and look forward to working with iSignthis for identity verification. Through integration with iSignthis, we expect to be able to streamline and accelerate our onboarding process.
