Sanctions and Watchlists (AML)
The AML check goes through 1,000s of global government regulatory and law enforcement watchlists and over 100 International and National Sanctions lists including:
– Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Sanctions
– United Nations Security Council Sanctions
– Her Majesty’s (HM) Treasury List

– Bureau of Industry and Security
– State Department Foreign Terrorist Organizations List and Non-Proliferation List
– US DOJ (FBI, DEA, US Marshals, and others)
– Interpol Most Wanted
– CBI List (The Central Bureau of Investigation)

Adverse Media

We use curated sources to ensure only reliable media informs this identification of adverse entities.

Using machine-learning-based technology enables a correct differentiation between the risk and the online noise.

We are able to identify every name in every article, every person and every organization. Identify crimes and categorize them by type, adding contextual information such as abbreviations or nicknames, dates of birth, age, locations, and associated entities. And run a full analysis of media context related to each name throughout these articles.

Political Exposed Person
By leveraging state of the art machine learning technology, we maintain robust PEPs monitoring, update and assurance process. This means that we have the capability of monitoring hundreds of PEPs lists concurrently in real-time.

What happens when you find a potential match on any of the background checks?

Although the machine learning technology aims to reduce false positives they can still happen. A human verification and assessment is necessary to validate the potential check. This is done by the Teller when reviewing the Account Request.

To know how to proceed in each type of warning (AML, PEP and Adverse Media) please refer to your institution procedures manual.

What should I do if one of the signers didn’t fill out his data?

If you are missing some data from a signer it means the signer hasn’t completed the onboarding process yet.In this case you’ll have the Resend Invite option available in the Details of the Account Request.
