LexisNexis® Risk Solutions acquires Tracesmart®

One part of our story began in Cardiff in 1999 when leading UK tracing analysts had a vision to deliver mass consumer intelligence. Known as Tracesmart, they grew to be a leading light in data management and linking. Now, assimilated within LexisNexis Risk Solutions following the acquisition of Tracesmart in 2014, the business continues to deliver pioneering facilities for people tracing and identity verification solutions; in addition we provide data cleansing, mortality screening and critical and decisive processes for anti-money laundering and compliance due diligence.

With the foundation of a strong workforce, powerful data and cutting-edge technology, and with the support of a thriving global organisation, LexisNexis Risk Solutions UK core operation remains in Cardiff, led by a highly experienced UK leadership team.
