Alacra Launches Alacra Authority File

Sep 13, 2012

Alacra, Inc., a provider of online business information solutions, announced the release of the Alacra Authority File, a database of core legal entity data attributes for over 170,000 global business entities, delivered to clients daily. The Alacra Authority File is a comprehensive source of entity reference data which expands, enriches, and enhances publicly available data from the CFTC's Interim Compliant Identifier (CICI) and helps financial institutions prepare for the upcoming release of the global Legal Entity Identifier (LEI).

The Alacra Authority File (AAF) provides legal entity reference data on large financial institutions' core clients and counterparties. Using a global research team and proprietary monitoring software, Alacra carefully tracks these entities to alert customers to changes to name and address information as well as regulatory status, listing status, rating status and entity identifiers.
