Risk intelligence data for global screening
Thomson Reuters World-Check risk intelligence data can be accessed using purpose built screening platforms, APIs and selected partner software. World-Check data supports our clients’ due diligence obligations in the fight against financial crime, bribery, and corruption, human rights crimes and environmental crime.
World-Check appreciates the data protection and privacy implications of providing this database and has robust data protection processes in place.
As regulatory demands continue to increase and new laws are introduced, organizations are faced with the burden of assessing, monitoring, and disclosing risk – and still remain competitive.
Since inception, World-Check risk intelligence has helped serve the Know Your Customer (KYC) and third-party risk screening needs of the world’s largest banks and financial institutions, corporations, law enforcement, and government and intelligence agencies.
