Our solutions

Navigation short description:

Governance, risk and compliance (GRC)

With comprehensive global coverage, the richest source of beneficial ownership data available, plus information on PEPs and sanctions, we are the resource for compliance and onboarding checks.

We help you assess whole corporate groups quickly, and monitor companies for changes. You can customize all analyses to your own risk appetite using Compliance Catalyst, a risk assessment tool powered by our Orbis database.

We are currently helping several financial institutions navigate the regulatory landscape, including areas such as the EU 4th Anti-Money Laundering directive, FinCEN CDD-rule, FATCA / CRS classification, MIFID 2, PSD 2 and many others.

Credit risk management and financial analysis

Our standardized financials help you assess and benchmark banks and companies globally. We offer financial strength metrics using a range of models, and are constantly updating our products with the latest accounting and regulatory disclosures. We have projected financials and extensive corporate structures, so you can assess the complete group – and take the financial stability of the parent into account.

BankFocus is a specific product used to analyze banks’ counterparty credit risk, assessing financial strength of a bank under the Basel 3 and Basel 4 guidelines. And it includes information on non-bank financial institutions.

Corporate finance and M&A

We provide the most comprehensive source of deal data combined with robust company information, allowing you to find and analyze companies and deals quickly and accurately. Our databases are acclaimed for their coverage - complete with historical detail, comparables, multiples and original documents. They’re ideal for researching deals and companies and for finding and analyzing peer groups and targets for acquisition.

Master data management

We provide information on companies across the globe. Our unique identifiers and bespoke matching/de-duping and data enhancing services mean you can create links between disparate datasets across your organization and create single views from data silos.

We also offer a wide range of data integration options and apps so you can seamlessly refresh, maintain and enrich your in-house data systems.

In financial institutions, our data is often used to power models within areas such as credit risk and compliance, as well as central services looking for a ‘single record of truth’ in their in-house systems.

Data enrichment content includes detailed financials, financial strength data and other risk metrics, extensive corporate structures, B2B sales and marketing intelligence and company verification details.

Business development and strategy

Our extensive global and regional company information is the ideal source to research new markets and industries and understand the M&A and foreign direct investment landscapes.

You can blend our data with yours to refresh and enrich your CRMs and other internal databases. Our unique company identifiers, and bespoke matching/de-duping services, can help you create links between disparate datasets across your organization and create single views from data silos.

Our WalletSizing Catalyst has been designed specifically for banks to assess the spending capacity of corporate clients on banking products and services. It’s the ideal business development tool for relationship managers to help identify opportunities, plan more efficiently and drive performance optimization.

Tax and transfer pricing strategies

We combine our comprehensive company information with transfer pricing functionality so you can plan and set policies, manage risk and document your compliance processes, to help you with the full TP analysis process. You can also fine tune your policies, create robust audit-defence analysis and prepare TP documentation. We've created a full document management system to help with BEPS and country-by-country (CbC) reporting requirements that will make you more efficient.
