WorldWatch Plus® Enhances PEP Data Solution with PEP Desk™ from Info4c

WorldWatch Plus Adds PEP Desk™ From Info4c

The availability of these products will give ISS clients options to use the best product for their use cases, whether in regulated or unregulated settings.

International Screening Solutions, as part of continuously enhancing its WorldWatch Plus® global sanctions, PEP and adverse media search platform, has partnered with info4c of Zurich, Switzerland, to include data from their PEP Desk™ product – an industry-leading compliance tool for identifying politically exposed persons as defined by international regulators.

WorldWatch Plus will expand its coverage to offer two products in the area of political exposure:

  • The PEP Desk™ database of politically exposed persons, their family members and close associates, as defined by regulators around the globe and the PEP standard of the international Financial Action Task Force (FATF). PEP Desk™ includes current and historical PEP information in the categories important for international compliance with identifying PEP customers for risk-based banking, insurance and corporate governance applications.
  • A GOV search option with access to more than 1,300 publicly-available government sites with information on current government and political officials. The GOV product refreshes searchable data every day from publicly-available sites, reducing the latency period associated with a database solution. In some cases, these sites also contain historical and relational information. Searches using the GOV product will return results with near real-time identification of current government officials.

"The availability of these products will give ISS clients options to use the best product for their use cases, whether in regulated or unregulated settings," said Ken Kunsman, ISS Chief Marketing Officer. "We are thrilled to be partnered with info4c, both because of the strength of the product and the alignment of our commitments to quality and customer satisfaction."

"info4c is excited about our partnership with ISS,” said Melitta Cabai, info4c Chief Executive Officer. “The partnership with ISS further strengthens our strong and stable network of international partners and our mutual commitment to providing high quality compliance information to clients around the world.”
