Rapid PEP and Sanction Checks for AML compliance

A politically exposed person (PEP) is someone who has been entrusted with a prominent public function.

PEPs are considered higher risk clients because they are more at risk to the exposure of bribery and corruption due to their public position. Due to this vulnerability, it is important to apply enhanced client due diligence when working with these individuals.

Sanctions are a bit different – these are restrictions used to stop those who are suspected of already committing illegal acts.

PEP and sanctions are integral to any robust AML compliance regime, as they can help you perform a robust risk assessment on each individual client. Our PEP and Sanctions Checks are rapid, providing instant results to help you make informed decisions to safeguard your business.
