Are you performing compliance activities with operational resources that lack education and training?
Financial Compliance & AML Screening Solution
Many Financial Services firms struggle to understand screening requirements and to define the scope of their screening program. It is a challenge to identify which lists should be screened against, optimize your potential hit rate (“blocks”) and keep up with the demands of clearing and resolving data in real-time.
We combine experienced analysts, our proven tiered review methodology and technology to mitigate the risks Banks, Insurance Companies and other Financial Services firms are facing from increasing sanctions and ever-changing government regulations. Our trade finance compliance services help you screen and identify customers, partners and counterparties who could be engaged in unlawful financial activities, associated with sanctioned parties, embargoed countries or politically exposed persons (PEPs) to keep you compliant.
The Vigilant Difference
