It's time to get serious about data

The need for financial-services firms to transform their core processes such as KYC, risk management, investigations and compliance grows by the day.

That transformation starts with dependable data about the people and companies you deal with. Data you can trust.

Build foundations for success

Accurate, trustworthy and accessible legal-entity data can transform operations such as KYC and enhanced due-diligence.

The cost of running KYC processes can easily run into thousands of dollars per customer and take weeks to process exceptions. Automation alone won't solve this — good data is key. Which is where we come in.

Fresh, standardized, auditable information, underpinned by our Legal-Entity Data Principles. This is data you — your auditors, lawyers and regulators — can trust.


It shouldn't be hard to get legal-entity data you can trust

And yet it is. Legal-entity information is dispersed across hundreds of business registers that are hard to navigate and impossible to access at scale. Traditional company-data aggregators are no longer the answer either, given their opaque processes and provenance.

Verifiable accuracy is more important than ever, and you should expect more.

You need data built on deep expertise, rigorous data models and well-founded, forward-looking principles. Data sourced direct from primary sources, curated with clear decision-making and no hidden bias, and defined by open not proprietary identifiers and standards. Data you know you can trust.

Ц was born out of the same frustrations you experience every day

We believe a fairer, more prosperous and sustainable society can only be achieved with greater corporate transparency.

Since 2010 we’ve been working with government agencies, NGOs and public-benefit groups to improve the quality and accessibility of the foundational legal-entity data on which you depend.

Today we offer the world's largest open legal-entity database, providing a single unified set of  company records from over 140 government registries and other official sources around the world.
