CounterpartyLink Named Best Compliance Product in Sell Side Technology Awards 2015
New York and London. CounterpartyLink (CPL), an independent provider of evidence-based legal entity intelligence for buy- and sell-side institutions and law enforcement agencies, today announced it has beennamed Best Compliance Product in the Sell Side Technology Awards 2015. The awards are to recognise the leading institutions, teams, products, services and third-party vendors in their area of expertise through an auditable and transparent methodology, and underpinned by the input and experience of eight judges.
CounterpartyLink has been at the heart of compliance and legal entity intelligence for more than 10 years, offering a suite of leading KYC-relevant counterparty data and intelligence products for buy- and sell-side institutions and law enforcement agencies.
The introduction of CPL’s new LEI monitoring service and the CPL Hierarchy Profile this year has further strengthened the company`s offering, allowing it to serve the broader universe of risk and compliance, and extend its services to clients that need deeper clarity of complex legal entities for their daily compliance operations.
This award is in recognition of CounterpartyLink’s commitment to providing the regulatory industry with the highest quality legal entity intelligence. It highlights the company’s ongoing commitment to working in partnership with their clients so as to ensure that we can better support their need for accurate client information. Accurate client information is behind all KYC and AML (Know Your Customer and Anti-Money Laundering) regulations. CPL enables customers to certify the accuracy of their entity data and ensure reporting is both correct and monitored for updates over time – something the FCA and other regulators mandate. Crucially CPL helps shorten the workflow processes for its customers, and therefore increases efficiencies, reduces costs and raises compliance levels. Every extra day that a customer takes to ‛on-board’ a new client is potentially a day of client fees lost.
‟We are extremely honoured that our customers and the industry have recognised us for our leadership in the compliance arena,” said James Redfern, managing director, CounterpartyLink. ‟CounterpartyLink remains committed to providing its clients with trusted, independent and timely data and intelligence on their legal entities. We thank the readers and judges of Sell Side Technology Awards for this honour.”
Established in 2005, CounterpartyLink’s customers include some of the most respected financial institutions and law enforcement agencies across the world. Its services and solutions reflect a vast experience in the legal entity reference data industry and help companies comply with the many rigorous regulatory requirements. CounterpartyLink is ISO 17442:2012 - Financial Services - Legal Entity Identifier; and is ISO 9001 - Quality Management Systems; ISO27001 - Information Security Management Standard (ISMS) compliant.
