Accuity, the leading worldwide provider of payment routing data, AML screening software and services, is pleased to announce that it has acquired a significant minority stake in World Compliance, the Miami, Florida-based Open Source Intelligence company.
Accuity has been a certified reseller of WorldCompliance solutions since February 2004 offering the company's Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) data as part of Global WatchList, Accuity's industry-leading collection of regulatory and enhanced due diligence lists. With its strengthened involvement, Accuity will be able to further leverage WorldCompliance's position as the innovation leader in Open Source Intelligence. In addition, Accuity's President and CEO, Hugh Jones, will serve on the WorldCompliance board to help guide future strategic and growth potential.
"WorldCompliance is best known for its innovative solutions. Its quality of data is so pristine and its research so meticulous that WorldCompliance solutions for PEP screening continue to outperform the competition," said Mr. Jones. "Accuity's investment will help us to leverage WorldCompliance's expertise even more and, together, offer clients the most comprehensive protection for PEP screening, FCPA compliance and AML and CTF requirements."
"Accuity's core business is its work with data - its compilation, enhancement, standardization and deployment - so we are very excited about this commitment," said Dirk Mohrmann, CEO of WorldCompliance. "To have such a well-respected brand as part of our company makes us an even more powerful solution provider."
