SIX and Eagle Investment Systems Expand Alliance to Include Sanctioned Securities Monitoring Service

Switzerland-based data provider SIX and Eagle Investment Systems, a BNY Mellon company, today announced an expanded alliance to help Eagle clients source global sanctions data – building on an established relationship dating back to 2011.

Eagle clients can now source sanctions data directly from SIX for use within Eagle solutions. The alliance will help to streamline efforts by clients to source, validate, and align sanctions data with existing portfolio data, helping firms minimize the risk of reputational damage and fines that can result from dealing with sanctioned entities.

“Effective sanctions compliance depends on accurate identification of in-scope entities and their issued securities, which are very complex and constantly changing,” said John Mc Manus, Head of Sales Americas, Financial Information at SIX. “Expanding our relationship with Eagle Investment Systems delivers a data solution that empowers their clients to adapt quickly to regulatory demands and sanctions activity, helping them to trade with confidence as a result.”

The Global Sanctions Data Service by SIX provides a list of related entities and issued securities of “watched” individuals or organizations who have been sanctioned by regulators or government bodies. The service identifies the regimes under which each is sanctioned, drawing from various international regulatory bodies, including those of the EU, Hong Kong, the UK and the US, as well as the United Nations. The firm monitors around 6.7 million active instruments and over 26,000 changes a week (such as regulator updates and shareholder changes).
