World-Risk Database

Experience The World’s Largest Risk Database

The World-Risk Database is a PEP/Sanctions and Adverse Media screening database designed to enable you check your client records against verified list of Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) and Specially Designated Individuals (SDN). The World-Risk database has been developed to assist reporting entities in meeting their obligations under AML/CTF regulations in an efficient, user-friendly, and cost-effective manner. The World-Risk database is designed to reduce your institution’s potential exposure to PEP and KYC risk using a bespoke platform to provide up-to-date risk profiles of politically exposed persons and sanctioned individuals.

The World-Risk Database provides detailed coverage in 240 countries, with a special emphasis on key countries posing greater risk to our clients, requiring greater depth of information, including information on opposition party members, shadow government officials, influence peddlers, and other risk-relevant individuals. Our PEPs database was vetted and shaped by experts from the Wolfsberg Group, the U.S. intelligence community, FATF, and former AML officers. We have more adverse media and risk relevant items to build risk profiles that reveal the true risk of a person.
