GAIN Entity Master is a comprehensive business application for cleansing, matching and maintaining Entity Data. It uniquely enables data managers and operations, as well as compliance and risk management professionals, to increase and maintain the quality of reference data related to the entities they interact with and are exposed to.
Uncover unknown exposures
While most of the required legal entity data is publicly available, gathering and analyzing this vast amount of information is a tedious and time-consuming task that often results in incomplete data that is difficult to maintain. This presents a major challenge for KYC, client on-boarding and pre-trade compliance. Rather than taking weeks or even months to fully understand your organization’s exposure to a given entity, the GAIN Entity Master helps significantly reduce the effort and time required to determine exposure.
Find the ultimate source of risk
Many systems fail to link the relationships of a security’s issuer to its various parent companies into account. An investment firm may not realize for instance, that it has a large number of securities issued by various subsidiaries that ultimately come from a single parent—thus exposing itself to excessive risk and possibly breaking its own allocation rules.
Rethinking Entity Data with GAIN Entity Master
Through exception-based processing, strict controls and validation rules, GAIN Entity Master guarantees data quality from the moment a new entity is created in the system. Dynamic maintenance then ensures that the data remains accurate throughout the entity lifecycle, capturing any event that affects the entities of interest.
