Reference Data Solutions

Reduce the time and effort to accurately identify customers, counterparties, and third parties.
Third-party and customer data constantly changes. When it is in multiple, discrete silos across the enterprise, entity names are inconsistently entered, record formats are different, the unique identifiers are missing or don’t match and changes are not universally or consistently applied. As a result, third-party and customer data ends up “dirty” – inaccurate, inconsistent and outdated.

Our Reference Data management tool is a unique pre-matched, cross-referenced database of entity records that enables companies to accurately identify clients, counterparties and vendors, incorporates valuable intelligence from multiple sources to meet Know Your Customer/Vendor (KYC/KYV) due diligence requirements and see a clear view of risk.
