Wolters Kluwer Names the Winner of its 2017 Alfredo deHaas Excellence in Analytics Award

Nov. 17, 2017 – Wolters Kluwer today named Liza Mistry, Senior Group Manager CRA & Fair Banking Data Analytics at TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank ® in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, as the 2017 honoree of its Alfredo deHaas Excellence in Analytics award. The award, which recognizes a banking professional who “excels in leveraging data to demonstrate his or her institution’s commitment to regulatory compliance,” was presented at the company’s 21st annual CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium, held November 5-8 in Nashville.

Named after longtime Community Reinvestment Act analyst Alfredo deHaas of MUFG Union Bank, N.A. in San Francisco, the award is meant “to trumpet the ‘unsung heroes’ who embody Alfredo’s passion and spirit for championing the creative and thoughtful use of data.”

Mistry was selected by a committee of veteran compliance professionals from the banking industry for her professionalism and commitment to excellence in data analytics. The committee highlighted her ability to use compliance analytics for a more complete picture of the bank’s regulatory risk.

“Liza has a tremendous knack for taking data and making it more digestible and actionable across different levels of management, including the Board of Directors,” said Christina Speh, Senior Vice President CRA, Fair Banking, and Compliance Testing at TD Bank. “Through her unique ability to distill large amounts of data down into manageable information, Liza provides a shining example of how data can be used to provide critical insights and improve overall business decisions from both a strategic perspective and in the field.”

“Alfredo consistently demonstrated a passion for fulfilling regulatory compliance obligations and better serving customers through the thoughtful analysis of data, and we are thrilled to honor these same qualities in Liza,” said Timothy R. Burniston, Senior Advisor and Principal Regulatory Strategist at Wolters Kluwer. “My colleagues and I had tremendous respect for Alfredo, and it is a great pleasure to recognize Liza’s dedication to data analytics through this award.”
