Glide Invest FAQ: What is KYC and why do you need it?

What is KYC & why do you need it?

Know Your Customer (KYC) is a regulatory requirement to ensure protection of customers against fraud, money laundering and illegal activities. You provide certain identity information like PAN card and the data is stored at a safe and secure place.  It is then accessed by various banks and financial institutions authorized by you to access it.

At Glide Invest, KYC is required to be done only once after which any AMC whose Mutual Funds you invest in is authorized to verify your identity and ensure that the person transacting is who he/she claims to be.

Currently, at Glide, we offer full KYC service and can complete you KYC through the app itself.

In case you wish to get your KYC done physically, or get your KYC details updated, we request you to visit your nearest CAMS or KARVY centres and get your KYC updated.  Please click on the links below to find the centre nearest to you.
