SWIFTRef Entity Plus nominated for Best Entity Data at the Data Management Awards 2018

12 September 2018

Every year, business media group The A-Team gives out its Data Management Awards in recognition of excellence in the field.

This year, SWIFTRef’s Entity Plus directory has been nominated in the “Best Entity Data Solution” category.

Entity Plus is the latest addition to the SWIFTRef (SWIFT Global Reference Data Utility) Portfolio. It is designed to help Financial Institutions in the contexts of Regulatory Compliance, Risk Management and Due Diligence.  It guides institutions in the correct identification of their customers and counterparties through the Entity Data it provides.

The product consists of a series of widely recognized entity identifiers such as the BIC, the LEI or the GIIN. These identifiers are mapped together to offer a centralized view on entities which can be used across multiple regulatory contexts. It also contains legal ownership information on these entities. Our dedicated and specialized data team is handling the sourcing, mapping and enrichment of the entity data on behalf of our customers to provide them with a reliable and up to date solution.

Current customers of Entity Plus value its data accuracy and completeness and highlight the time and cost savings it has brought them. To learn more about Entity Plus, log onto our dedicated Entity Plus webpage or contact us at swiftref@swift.com.

The voting for “Best Entity Data Solution” is open until the 28th of September. You can vote by following the link here.
