What is Adverse Media and Watchlist Monitoring?

Adverse Media and Watchlist Monitoring systematically track various public and authoritative sources to identify relevant information for due diligence procedures about individuals or entities. This information may include details related to criminal activities, regulatory violations, political exposure, and measures adopted by governments and regulatory bodies.

On one hand, organizations use these monitoring practices to mitigate reputational and financial risks. By staying informed about potential threats, they can align their actions with their internal risk appetite. On the other hand, this vigilance ensures compliance with legal requirements and prevents engagement with high-risk individuals or entities involved in money-laundering or terrorism financing.

What is Name and Transaction Screening?

Name Screening is critical to Know Your Customer (KYC) checks during client onboarding and ongoing monitoring. The primary goal is to identify potential risks related to money laundering and terrorist financing, ensuring compliance with AML and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CTF) regulations.

Transaction Screening analyzes financial transactions to detect suspicious or illicit activities involving multiple entities. It involves monitoring transactions against predefined criteria such as sanctions lists, watchlists, or risk profiles. Daily Control™ allows further investigation to prevent financial crimes if a transaction matches any red flags.
