Using illion’s Trust Registry allowed a national transportation company to identify 81% of individuals behind the trust accounts in their customer portfolio.

Knowing who’s along for the ride

The Australian division of a leading global transportation company sought an efficient way to identify the trust accounts in its portfolio of customers.

Historically, the company had to perform their linking processes for trusts accounts manually, taking an exceptional amount of time and resources to achieve. The process took around six months to complete, and not every trust account was able to be identified.

Businesses, over time, accumulate hundreds of trusts in their portfolios each year and each trust account in the business’ portfolio represents a significant security risk.

Fully automatic: Providing the answer

Providing the solution the business needed, the illion Trust Registry offered results using an automated and streamlined process. The client was required to provide data sets which covered public information needed to identify the individual as well as business information such as their ABN and CAN.

The Trust Registry works initially as a ‘data wash’ by matching and appending a business’s existing data sets against the existing data in the registry.

The information is matched and, where applicable, missing information is added to the client’s datasets. The process enriches the value of the client’s database, allowing them to link trust accounts with the individuals behind them.

Using illion’s network of business databases & sources, the Trust Registry reviews millions of customer files using matching intelligence engines. Using ABN and ACN details the Trust Registry links trustees to trusts using its comprehensive datasets drawn from numerous sources.
