LexisNexis Risk Solutions Recognized as a Category Leader in Two New Chartis Research Reports on KYC Data Solutions and Watchlist Screening and Monitoring


ATLANTA — LexisNexis® Risk Solutions has been rated as a category leader by Chartis Research in two new reports on Know Your Customer (KYC)/Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Data Solutions and Watchlist Monitoring Solutions. Both reports use the Chartis RiskTech Quadrant©, a comprehensive methodology of in-depth independent research and a clear scoring system to explain which technology solutions best meet an organization’s needs.

When scoring KYC technology from LexisNexis Risk Solutions, Chartis considered several factors such as sanctions and watchlist data, negative news, PEPs, digital identity, entity relationships, trade-related financial crime risk and geographical coverage. Integrated KYC tools from LexisNexis Risk Solutions set the foundation for an effective customer lifecycle management strategy that reflects current financial crime compliance risk realities and supports core operations for global financial institutions.

“LexisNexis Risk Solutions has continued to build on its robust portfolio of data solutions, a fact reflected in its Category Leader position in the Chartis RiskTech Quadrant for KYC/AML Data Solutions,” said Phil Mackenzie, research principal at Chartis. “Alongside its unique advantages in the digital and retail identity areas, LexisNexis Risk Solutions has developed capabilities for new areas of interest, including vessel identities and payments efficiency services.”

As a Category Leader for watchlist monitoring solutions, Chartis evaluated LexisNexis Risk Solutions in areas such as market presence, geographic coverage, real-time capabilities, data methodology, solution deployment, reporting and audit trail. LexisNexis Risk Solutions delivers a configurable, end-to-end watchlist screening solution that enables businesses to confidently complete initial screening and conduct ongoing monitoring across the customer relationship.
