Accuity, the leading global provider of risk and compliance, payments and know-your-customer solutions, announced today that it is opening an office in Miami to serve new and existing clients in Miami, Central America, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, the Caribbean and Gulf countries.

Accuity is part of Reed Business Information (RBI), which is in turn part of RELX Group, a world leading provider of information solutions, listed on the London and Amsterdam Stock Exchanges.

The opening of Accuity’s Miami office is in response to the firm’s rapidly expanding business in Central and Latin America. It reflects Accuity’s strategy in LATAM, which has been to grow its Sao Paolo office to meet demand in the South of LATAM region (SOLA) and grow its Miami base for Northern LATAM and the Caribbean. Accuity has more than 200 clients in LATAM and predicts continuing growth across the region as a whole – across the breadth of Accuity’s payments, risk and compliance solutions. Being in Miami will enable Accuity to enhance its service levels to new and existing regional clients who already include some of the region’s leading financial institutions.

Hugh Jones, President and CEO of Accuity, said: “The opening of our Miami office brings us closer to our Central and Latin American customers, many of whom have branches in Miami. We see Miami as a financial services hub for the region and we look forward to forging ever stronger relationships with the financial services community there.

“Our local team, now based in Miami, will work closely with our Sao Paulo office to leverage our deep Brazilian market experience. Together, they will build on Accuity’s reputation for improving operational efficiency and protecting our financial and corporate clients against sanctions and compliance violations.”

Accuity’s new office is located at: 1101 Brickell Avenue, 8th Floor, South Tower, Suite #102. Miami, FL, 33131, USA. Contact Accuity on +1 305 395 6770
