Accuity® Global WatchList®: Reduce risk exposure with an extra layer of protection
Scanning against standard sanctions lists is not enough to protect your business against the risks of non-compliance. Many standard sanctions lists, including OFAC's Specially Designated Nationals list, do not provide exhaustive lists of sanctioned entities. This potentially exposes your business to costly consequences and inhibits global expansion.
Bridger Insight XG with Global WatchList from Accuity delivers 100% coverage of global sanctions data. Accuity Global WatchList enhancements data further strengthens compliance screening by delivering deeper due diligence information and access to The OFAC Enhancements List from Accuity. Key data enhancements help uncover sanctioned entities that a standard list may miss by providing critical details:
- Known aliases of designated individuals
- Subsidiaries of designated companies
- SWIFT/BIC codes and national routing information for all sanctioned bank offices
- Key name and address details on all designated bank offices in sanctioned countries
Bridger Insight XG's best-in-class matching algorithm helps you efficiently leverage enhanced data without impacting workflow efficiency. By detecting and evaluating approximate matches to intelligently reduce false positives, Bridger Insight XG helps maximize the protection of enhanced sanctions data while minimizing the impact of false positives. With the integration of enhancements lists, global sanctions and other watchlists from Accuity, Bridger Insight XG leverages proven data to help you capture global market share, protect against risk and increase revenue.

Bridger Insight XG helps protect your reputation and the bottom line
Banks remain a leading area of focus for BSA/AML compliance issues. All banking transactions should be screened in order to avoid compliance violations. Areas such as new accounts, wire transfers, and letters of credit should be checked as the transactions occur. The entire customer information file (CIF) should be rechecked whenever compliance agencies update their watchlists.
Where should a bank begin in implementing compliance systems? Begin by identifying the types of transactions which create the most risk for compliance violations. These areas typically include the following: SWIFT, FedWire or ACH wire transfers, new accounts, letters of credit, loans and CIF files. You may find Practical OFAC Principles and Practical USA PATRIOT Act Principles helpful for this.
Meeting regulatory requirements can be costly; failing to comply can be even more expensive, impacting both your brand value and the bottom line. Bridger Insight XG automates compliance workflow to streamline screening for new accounts, wire transfers and letters of credit.
