The world’s leading provider of bank routing data:
Accuity has been providing solutions to banks and businesses worldwide since it was founded in 1836. Accuity became the official registrar of ABA Routing Numbers in 1911, ‘to identify the specific financial institution responsible for the payment of a negotiable instrument.
The premier source for intelligence on financial institutions:
Bankers Almanac was established in 1845 as a leading provider of reference data on the banking industry. In 2004, Bankers Almanac, in association with the Wolfsberg Group of International Banks, created a central repository for banks, containing the primary information required by financial institutions to conduct due diligence checks on their bank counterparties. This was known as Bankers Almanac Due Diligence.
Assembling an integrated suite of solutions:
Bankers Almanac was acquired by Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier and one of the world’s leading business data and content providers. Reed Elsevier (now The RELX Group) acquired Accuity Holdings in 2011, and Accuity was integrated with Bankers Almanac to form BankersAccuity, which offered a complementary array of payments processing data and risk and compliance solutions to financial institutions.
BankersAccuity was rebranded Accuity in 2013. One year later, RBI acquired FircoSoft, a world leader in watch list filtering software. The acquisition of FircoSoft added an essential new dimension to the Accuity portfolio, delivering exceptional risk and regulatory protection to customers around the globe.
NRS, a leading provider of consulting, technology, and education solutions designed to help securities professionals navigate the regulatory and compliance landscape, became part of Accuity in 2011.
