Identify financial crime and sanctions risk at the earliest opportunity

Vital to mitigating risk is complete and accurate customer data. When financial crime compliance professionals have to rely on partial and inaccurate customer records it reduces their ability to effectively identify genuine risk and lower the volume of false positives.

LexisNexis® Risk Solutions supports business and customer friendly watchlist screening. Customer data quality can be improved, erroneous matches reduced and a clear view of risk attained. Our name screening platform and watchlist data help to identify true risk, enabling you to focus resource on genuine alerts.

Screening against our watchlist data can flag, and help manage, an array of potential risks. These include Politically Exposed Persons, adverse media, enforcements and sanctioned entities. This process can be directly integrated into your workflow, helping to improve efficiencies whilst reducing risk.
