Clarient Global LLC (Clarient) was presented with Inside Reference Data’s Best Reference Data Newcomer for 2016 award for its Public Know Your Customer (PKYC) Service. The award recognizes a new provider or product launched since March 2015 that provides competitive advantage for users’ reference data operations.

Matthew Stauffer, CEO, Clarient, accepted the award during a ceremony held on May 18. Commenting on the award, Stauffer said “We are very pleased that the Clarient PKYC Service was recognized as the Best Reference Data Newcomer this year. With more than 50,000 completed PKYC records for our clients, Clarient is supporting the industry’s need for a more efficient and standardized way of handling KYC, client onboarding and rolling reviews. We continue to create a single, global platform to collect and manage legal entity data throughout the entire client lifecycle.”

Regulatory requirements to Know Your Customer (KYC) amplify the need to simplify client data and to better manage documents. Looking to fill those needs, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) founded Clarient in collaboration with Barclays, BNY Mellon, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and State Street.
