UBO Service joins RapidLEI Registration Agent (RA) partner programme

LONDON, UK, and DUBLIN, IRELAND – 1 February 2021 – Today, RapidLEI, the world’s number one issuer of new Legal Entity Identifiers (LEI), announced a partnership with UBO Service, the innovative Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) data capture solution provider, to add LEIs to UBO Service’s portfolio.

The partnership enables UBO Service to offer an additional layer of security and compliance to its customers’ already-streamlined UBO declarations, efficiently and accurately registering LEIs as part of the same service using RapidLEI’s automated LEI issuance technology. This enhanced compliance solution helps financial institutions to meet Know Your Customer (KYC)/Customer Due Diligence (CDD) obligations from regulations such as the Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD) and the updated Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), quickly and easily.

Ben Cronin, Managing Director at UBO Service, said, “UBO Service is all about streamlining regulatory compliance, so when we decided to offer LEIs it made sense to partner with RapidLEI as our LEI issuer. RapidLEI’s service is unbeatable for efficiency and accuracy thanks to its automated LEI issuance process, and we’re very happy to be launching UBO Service operating with support from RapidLEI technology. I’m excited to pass on these benefits to our customers so that they can get everything they need for their CDD obligations in one place”.

RapidLEI’s Registration Agent (RA) programme is the most developed in the global LEI ecosystem, with various types of businesses utilising the programme to build automated LEI issuance into their unique services. RapidLEI makes its pioneering technology available as an API, giving partners direct access to register LEIs themselves in just minutes. It recently announced support for the new Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) Validation Agent (VA) model which allows banks and financial institutions to consolidate the onboarding and LEI registration processes into one streamlined workflow, with RapidLEI’s API now VA-ready.

Paul Tourret, Corporate Development Officer at Ubisecure said, “regulations like the 5AMLD and CTA come with hefty penalties for non-compliance, and compliance begins with identifying and verifying Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBO). It’s fantastic to be partnering with UBO Service as the team shares our vision for the benefits of automation in the KYC/AML space – including efficiency, accuracy and a great customer experience. The LEI, as a global identifier, has powerful potential to transform KYC by increasing transparency and saving costs, making it the perfect complement to UBO declarations”.
