Joss Technology offers the only comprehensive and specialized suite of cleansing and maintenance tools focused on Entity Data. It uniquely enables data managers, IT and operations as well as compliance and risk management professionals, to increase and maintain the quality of reference data related to entities they interact with and are exposed to.

Our typical projects include internal data alignment in preparation for the Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs), enhancements to exposure reporting, cleansing of client data repositories, faster counterparty onboarding, improved KYC/AML processes, development of corporate hierarchies views, and more.

All financial institutions face challenges in obtaining and maintaining high-quality reference data related to entities such as counterparties, clients, custodians and issuers. In most cases, the information collected is partial, scattered in various silos across the enter-prise and not dynamically maintained. As a result, financial services firms struggle to build a complete and accurate picture of such entities.
