The Fenergo FATCA Compliance solution is a complete end-to-end solution that enables institutions to efficiently and effectively manage the client onboarding, client identification, classification and reporting requirements dictated by FATCA, without impacting the overall client onboarding experience.
For new client onboarding, the Fenergo FATCA Compliance solution enables the efficient and easy capture of FATCA-specific information through specific data capture fields, which will make the ongoing process of tracking and managing clients exhibiting US indicia easier.
For existing clients, the Fenergo FATCA Compliance solution conducts extensive client identification according to pre-defined US indicia on all available client data lying in various repositories. With this newly-consolidated data, the Fenergo FATCA Compliance solution is capable of conducting a pre-classification of all clients based on the strength of the indicia being displayed, helping to reduce the number of clients that need to be contacted to self-certify their US status.
Finally, the solution also comes with the Fenergo FACTA Self-Certification Portal, a secure, multi-lingual online portal designed to streamline, automate and reduce the effort involved in collecting data via the appropriate W-8 and W-9 forms through a step-by-step form filling interface. Fenergo FACTA Self-Certification Portal can act as a standalone module or be integrated with the Fenergo FATCA Compliance solution.
