LexisNexis and Accuity Inks Deal for a Merger

by February 18, 2021

Accuity and LexisNexis Risk Solutions have announced that they will be merging operations where the former will be a part of the LexisNexis Risk Solutions Group which operates in more than 100 countries.

Both businesses are a part of RELX, a global provider of information-based analytics and decision tools, and their respective focus areas are in the global financial crime compliance sector with complementary solutions.

LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Accuity will conduct business as usual in the short term while integration progresses.

Both entities said in a statement that their combined solutions will further leverage and extend high-value data and analytic capabilities from both companies to provide comprehensive risk management and payments solutions.

This will allow for future integrated offerings to better address critical customer needs across Know Your Customer, anti-money laundering and payments by providing more comprehensive global solutions to address the sophisticated and evolving methods criminals use to commit financial crimes.

Additionally, combining two differentiated and distinct data sets will enrich a joint product suite to drive greater customer value by enabling more actionable decisions through effective customer portfolio monitoring.
