Accelerate customer acquisition and comply with AML obligations

Money Laundering is a global problem which costs the United Kingdom billions of pounds each year, threatens national security and is linked to terrorist financing.** Organisations must ensure they have robust identity verification and name screening controls in place, to actively combat this problem.

Comprehensive anti-money laundering (AML) checks will first verify the identity of individuals executing financial transactions. Subsequently, the AML checks will screen individuals against global watchlists, sanctions lists and politically exposed persons (PEP) databases, to help organisations identify potential risk, streamline operations and comply with legislation. LexisNexis® Risk Solutions provide AML compliance software and customer due diligence (CDD) platforms that combine technology, data and analytics to evaluate risk and facilitate a risk-based approach.

PEP and Sanction Checks

PEP list and Sanction screening helps to mitigate the threat of financial, regulatory and reputational risk from terrorist financing, money laundering and illicit payments.

As part of our anti-money laundering and customer due diligence checks we provide PEP and Sanction screening against comprehensive global watchlists. This will identify politically exposed persons, terrorists, criminals and individuals or organisations that are subject to global sanctions.

Document Checks

Forged documents are becoming more sophisticated. To reduce the risk of a fake document successfully supporting a fraudulent identity claim, we enable you to both validate and authenticate over 3,000 ID documents issued by nearly 200 countries, including the following:

  • Passports
  • Driving Licences
  • Travel Visas
  • ID Cards
