Thomson Reuters Named 'Best KYC and Client On-Boarding Solution' at Data Management Summit Awards 2014

Awards recognize leading providers of outstanding data and data management solutions

LONDON / NEW YORK –– Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced that it has won ‘Best KYC and Client On-Boarding Solution’ at the second annual Data Management Summit Awards 2014, hosted by A-Team Group.

The annual Data Management Summit Awards recognize outstanding products and services in data management and are voted on by senior managers from financial institutions and readers of Reference Data Review.

Thomson Reuters provides a complete set of solutions, including World-Check data, enabling end-to-end Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and entity on-boarding management; from on-boarding initiation at the front office level, through to back office KYC and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks, regulatory compliance, FATCA tax compliance and account operations.

Earlier this year, Thomson Reuters launched Accelus Org ID, an end-to-end client identity service that collects, verifies, screens and monitors for change for client on-boarding as well as by conducting remediations and refreshing existing portfolios to a global standard. The service enables the end-client to provide client identity information through a secure web-based portal and authorize the distribution to their financial institutions. Accelus Org ID provides a real-time "KYC passport" which represents a validated and screened identity, making it easier to open accounts and conduct business globally.

“We are extremely pleased to have won ‘Best KYC and Client On-Boarding Solution’ at this year’s Data Management Summit Awards,” says Phil Cotter, managing director, Financial Crime and Reputational Risk at Thomson Reuters. “As KYC becomes increasingly complex, we continuously strive to develop and deliver new solutions that help our clients more efficiently meet their regulatory requirements. The fact that this award was voted on by industry professionals further validates the position of Accelus as a leading suite of KYC solutions. Thank you to everyone who voted for us.”

Thomson Reuters suite of Enterprise KYC solutions  enables compliance by staying on top of new regulations as they come into effect, incorporating rules and regulations surrounding AML, FATCA, Dodd-Frank, EMIR and MiFID, in the US, Europe, Asia and the emerging markets.
