Asset reunification specialist now associate member of the BBA
Cardiff based Tracesmart, leading supplier of asset reunification and identity verification services, has announced it is now a professional associate member of the British Bankers' Association (BBA). Tracesmart has joined the BBA to gain a deeper insight into the financial sector and share its expert knowledge with the banking community.
Tracesmart currently supplies a wide range of services to the financial sector which are used for a variety of purposes - from specialist tracing and data cleansing services which drive asset reunification campaigns, to electronic identity checks which are used in anti-money laundering and know your customer exercises. Becoming a professional associate member of the BBA will ensure Tracesmart is fully aware of challenges the industry faces and allow the company to share its extensive specialist knowledge. Mike Trezise, Managing Director at Tracesmart, highlighted the company's long tradition of working with professional organisations,
"We are already members of, and work with, numerous professional bodies to the benefit of both parties - we now hope that in working with the BBA we can continue this practice and expand our knowledge of the banking industry. A better understanding of the sector inevitably allows us to further tailor our service offerings and can only lead to better service provision for our clients."
In addition to information sharing, the company aims to raise the awareness of the Tracesmart brand in the banking community - the BBA has members all over the globe and its member banks together form the biggest international banking centre on the planet. On welcoming Tracesmart as a professional associate member, Jason Cole, Commercial Director of the BBA, noted the diverse array of companies that support the BBA,
"The BBA is the leading UK banking and financial services trade association and acts on behalf of over 200 members from 60 different countries. We are pleased to welcome Tracesmart as a professional associate member of the BBA. This membership consists of a variety of firms including companies from the legal, accounting, consultancy and technology sectors. All have one thing in common - a desire to participate and share information amongst their peers from the banking community."
