Citi Launches Citi® Verify

Real-Time Data Validation Service for Institutions

Citi Verify will Provide Access to GIACT’s EPIC Platform®

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) has launched Citi®
Verify, a new identity and account verification solution that helps
clients streamline customer onboarding, reduce the risk of improper
payments, and drive operational efficiencies. Through Citi’s
relationship with GIACT Systems®, a leader in helping
companies positively identify and authenticate customers, Citi Verify
provides institutional clients the ability to validate their US-based
customers’ information prior to enrolling and initiating transactions.

With Citi Verify, Citi customers will gain access to GIACT’s EPIC
Platform, an extensive, real-time network of identity verification and
authentication services available in the market. “Citi Verify
demonstrates our commitment to providing a seamless payment experience,
especially at a time when the industry is moving towards real-time and
tokenized payments,” said Alberto Casas, North America Payments and
Receivables Head, with Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions. “Not only
does Citi Verify provide a layer of assurance for our clients when
onboarding new customers, it also addresses the major costs incurred
across the industry from misdirected payments, such as ACH returns, and
will significantly strengthen the case for institutional adoption of
Instant Payments. Our clients will now have added visibility and
assurance that their transactions will be processed successfully.”

In addition to account verification, Citi Verify goes a step further
than other similar services by providing customer identity verification
as well. Available through a single API or via a web or batch interface,
Citi clients can access an extensive network of identity verification
and authentication services, including customer intelligence comprised
of over four billion records.

“Customer intelligence has become vital as the speed and volume of
e-Commerce, payment processing, and digital onboarding continues to
increase exponentially,” continued Casas. “With Citi Verify, our clients
now have access to the most comprehensive identity and account
verification solution in the marketplace.”

Citi Verify is currently available to clients in the United States and
will be integrated into the existing suite of payments and receivables
solutions offered by Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions.

Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) enables our clients’ success
by providing an integrated suite of innovative and tailored cash
management and trade finance services to multinational corporations,
financial institutions and public sector organizations across the globe.
