All You Need to Know About Entity Data

We’ve been tracking entity data and issues around its management for a good number of years now. In fact, the topic of Legal Entity Identifiers was one of our hottest for a couple of years. And while the emphasis continues to shift (right now, client onboarding is what it’s all about!), the issue at the heart of any data management initiative still comes down to the quality of entity data.

Given the importance of and interest in this topic, A-Team Group has collated all of its knowledge collected over the years into a single ultra useful Handbook: The Entity Data Management and Downstream Applications Handbook to be precise. Launched at our Data Management Summit in London last week, it is now available for free download to all.

The Handbook, sponsored by WorkFusion, is a single source of information about entity data, providing an overview of the challenges and opportunities, a full review of the legal entity identifier (LEI) and its outlook, and a delve into the key regulations impacting entity data including Dodd-Frank, the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), and Know Your Customer regulations in general.

It also discusses entity data and suppliers, challenges and approaches to data management and it explores key downstream applications that consume the data including client onboarding, client screening, risk management and regulatory compliance.

The full guide is available now for free download here.
