It’s a seemingly impossible task to continually monitor the most up-to-date lists worldwide to ensure no entity connected to your business is of concern. Fortunately, there’s a single source that can answer all of your questions.
LexisNexis® Firco Global WatchList® includes:
As one of the largest databases in the world for negative news and high-risk entities, Firco Global WatchList helps you to identify:
PEP and REP data and enforcement
Firco Global WatchList includes a PEP database of more than 2 million entities across 240 countries and territories. It provides primary unique identifiers to positively identify PEPs and also offers micro-categorisation functionality to sort PEPs by region and type.
Additionally, Firco Global WatchList includes REPs and enforcements profiles compiled from over 1,000 enforcement agencies and 35,000 media sources.
Regulatory and sanctions data
Primary regulatory lists in Firco Global WatchList are sourced from more than 45 regulatory bodies and compiled from verified international sources. Enhancements are provided on ownership data, routing codes such as SWIFT/BIC, location data, vessel data and other information.
These enhancements improve matching as well as fill gaps by enabling you to identify sanctioned entities that are not explicitly placed on regulatory lists such as OFAC and EU.
Dual-use and controlled goods data
Firco Global WatchList includes a comprehensive list of dual-use and controlled goods to help you identify and prevent shipping of these items to sanctioned and high-risk jurisdictions. In addition, you can screen all related fields associated with trade finance transactions to ensure compliance with policies and regulations.
With the vessel data in Firco Global WatchList, you not only receive the information you need to screen against vessels listed by OFAC, you get additional intelligence that includes beneficial owner, previous names, port of registry, operator, and more.
