In the world of financial data, there are over 50 different unique legal entity identifiers. Many have been created by proprietary data vendors such as Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters or S&P CapitalIQ, but many more are publicly available from regulators, exchanges, government bodies or local operating units (LOUs).
The challenge is how to match and map them all together for reporting purposes, risk exposure calculations or to eliminate data silos.
Resolve is Alacra’s proprietary matching and cross-referencing software algorithm based upon almost 20 years of experience and business rules in cleansing, de-deduping and cross-referencing legal entities for the world’s premier financial institutions.
Alacra’s Resolve provides a quick and easy way to see multiple identifiers for the same entity in one clean, simple file.
