Supporting four key components of AML compliance

Customer Data


Identity Verification

LexisNexis® IDU®

Market-leading identity verification coverage, utilising our proprietary universe of consumer records and data from two of the top three UK credit bureaus, in a single integrated platform. Instantly verify more UK identities than with any other provider, without the need for multiple searches against supplementary sources.

Customer Data Management

Our data management solutions combine expansive UK consumer records with proprietary linking technology to cleanse, update and enhance your customer data. Ensuring your master customer records are accurate and up-to-date on an ongoing basis, will benefit many business processes including customer due diligence.

PEP and Sanctions Screening

LexisNexis® Bridger Insight® XG and LexisNexis® WorldCompliance™ Data

Best in class global solution for regular screening of new and existing customer records against our proprietary database of risk information, containing the latest sanctions lists and PEP lists, adverse media and enforcement records. Fully scalable and configurable, allowing you to screen high volumes of customer records, as frequent as daily, and to set your confidence thresholds and screening rules based on your organisation’s risk appetite.

Remediation Level 1

LexisNexis® Bridger Insight® XG

The configurable workflow sets Bridger Insight® XG at the core of your remediation process, providing a central remediation, escalation, communication and audit history centre for your whole process, across all levels of alert and due diligence stages.

Remediation Level 2

LexisNexis® EDD Insight

Our web-based investigation platform, LexisNexis® EDD Insight, provides a unique combination of in-depth business, consumer and AML risk information via a single portal, which can mirror Bridger Insight® XG search settings for consistency. Leveraged in conjunction with adverse information searches of the deep web, EDD Insight enables you to build a more holistic picture of risk.

Remediation Level 3

LexisNexis® EDD Reports

Some situations demand the highest level of enhanced due diligence. When dealing with certain PEPs or state-owned enterprises, unravelling complex corporate structures to identify beneficial owners or engaging with entities from high-risk jurisdictions, in-depth checks are required. Researched and developed by regional experts around the globe, our enhanced due diligence reports deliver a detailed view of the risk associated with a given entity, to support effective risk-based decision making.

Identity Verification

Instant identity verification, which checks multiple information sources via a single platform, minimising customer friction.

Set thresholds according to your risk appetite; only conduct and pay for the checks you need.

User-friendly scorecard interface clearly highlights whether the customer has passed or failed or whether more information is required.
