AML Data Files
Accuity has built a reputation for maintaining the highest levels of data quality in the industry. We constantly collect, normalize and validate data from multiple sanctions and caution lists around the world, and enrich this data to reduce false positives and enable the highest level of AML compliance.
Accuity’s proprietary compilation of multiple regulatory and enhanced due diligence lists from around the world provides the ideal framework for your customer screening and interdiction filtering processes.
Global WatchList® is a comprehensive collection of caution lists from all major sanctioning bodies, law enforcement agencies and financial regulators worldwide. We continually expand GWL, adding regulatory and enhanced due diligence data and lists, offering you the most up-to-date and accurate information to help protect your business.
Composed of more than 30 regulatory screening lists compiled from international sources with enhancements made by Accuity, it covers 100% of all regulatory sanction lists for every country worldwide.
It is the only AML database in the market enhanced with thousands of unique identifiers for added protection against sanctioned entities.
Doing business with an entity on a Regulatory list is restricted or prohibited by governments and/or official groups such as the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) or European Union. Violations are punishable by law.
Politically Exposed Person Due Diligence Database
Accuity’s PEP Due Diligence Database, powered by WorldCompliance, offers the most comprehensive and detailed database of its kind — the ideal fuel for your PEP enhanced due diligence processes. It details information such as: names, aliases, date and place of birth, photographs, positions, family members, associates and company holdings. Additionally, Accuity provides key relationships and associates of PEP.
Each entity is notated with precise source links for further verification, if necessary. The PEP Due Diligence Database also includes an automated look-up application for researching and identifying additional information from the matches that you have made. A match between your customer’s information and Accuity’s PEP Due Diligence Database does not mean you are obligated to refuse the business. Your best judgment allows you to decide which actions should be taken toward a particular customer’s account. You can also contact the proper authorities for additional guidance.
Enhanced Due Diligence database:
Offers unique additional security that usually is above regulatory obligation — ensuring enhanced security. It includes the world’s largest database of negative news and high risk entities.
A range of EDD Lists including the World Bank Debarred List, the United States Marshals List, the Interpol Wanted Fugitives List and International Arms Traffickers provide the information necessary to make ”best judgment“ decisions over which actions should be taken toward a particular customer’s account as doing business with an entity on an EDD list is not forbidden but should be watched and/or recorded.
We are here to help your risk-based approach achieve the best protection and best available compliance data:
You can choose which Regulatory, PEP, or Enhanced Due Diligence database is appropriate to your operations, using a cafeteria style approach.
