RDC and Fenergo Announce Strategic Partnership
Market leaders to collaborate on driving superior operational efficiency for customer due diligence
New York and London — December 7, 2017 — Regulatory DataCorp, Inc. (RDC), the global leader in compliance screening, today announced a partnership with Fenergo, a leading provider of Client Lifecycle Management solutions.
By combining RDC’s world-class collection of risk-relevant data and machine learning technology with Fenergo’s market-leading client lifecycle management platform, global financial institutions and financial technology (FinTech) companies will be better equipped to achieve KYC/AML compliance as well as realize greater operational efficiencies in their onboarding and customer due diligence practices.
“Financial institutions of all sizes wrestle with achieving comprehensive and efficient customer due diligence,” said Thomas Obermaier, CEO of RDC. “RDC has grown by finding more risks and eliminating more false positives than anyone else and we’re delighted to be partnering with Fenergo. We believe their strong case management and workflow capabilities will further reduce the workload our customers face while also enabling them to better fight money laundering, corruption and financial crimes”
Two distinct market trends served as the impetus for this new relationship. First, the continual rise in regulatory changes combined with soaring global AML threats creates massive and unmanageable compliance and due diligence workloads for companies of all size. Secondly, ongoing margin pressure as well as flat/decreasing net interest income makes it increasingly important to evolve to a more efficient, central competency or “center of excellence” compliance model.
Marc Murphy, Fenergo’s CEO, commenting on the RDC partnership, stated, “Fenergo continues to serve our growing client community, comprised of a global regulatory collective of 20,000+ risk and compliance experts. Not only does this regular interaction inform our own regulatory and product roadmaps to ensure continued global compliance and regulatory surety for our clients, but also guides us to seek out strategic partnerships that complement our solutions. As a joint offering, RDC’s GRID database and intelligent filtering with its name-matching functionality adds yet another best in class component to our client lifecycle management suite.”
