A barcode for information
With regulators demanding effective risk data aggregation and risk reporting, the pressure to improve data management practices has never been greater.
Thomson Reuters Permanent Identifier (PermID) is a machine-readable identifier developed to create a unique reference for any data item. While most identifier schemas span subsets of entity types or categories, PermID provides comprehensive identification across a wide variety of entity types including organizations, instruments, funds, issuers and people.
Unlike stock tickers and other such symbols, PermID never changes, helping you handle today’s complex data management challenges, eliminate mapping inconsistencies, reduce operational risk, and streamline end-to-end workflow processes across various platforms.
