Improve AML Compliance With Compliancely’s Real-Time PEP Check

Reduce adverse media coverage and potential money laundering allegations by verifying your investor/customer profiles with our real-time Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) check.

How Does The Compliancely PEP Search API Work?

When you want to onboard a potential investor into the business or when you onboard a customer, it is essential to verify the profile against the Politically Exposed People’s database. You see, when the profile assessments show that the individual or the entity has a history of corruption, bribery, or money laundering, it means that the profile is on the radar of the federal agencies.

Onboarding these high-risk profiles could mean bad news for your business because the adverse media coverage, controversial allegations associated with the high-risk profiles, and the unnecessary federal attention could be passed down to your organization.

By verifying the profiles against the PEP data lists, you can easily identify, validate, and assess the risk a profile could bring in and prevent reputational losses and improve AML compliance.

Most frequent questions and answers related to politically exposed persons (PEP).

A Politically Exposed Person is someone who is in a position of prominent public presence and uses their influence or power to engage in bribery, corruption, stealing, embezzling, money laundering, and other related financial crimes. The adverse media coverage on a politically exposed person is also considered a critical factor in due diligence.

A Politically Exposed Person Check allows you to check if a person has a record of being involved in money laundering, embezzlement, corruption, and other financial crimes. It is a compliance protocol that enables you to check if an individual is or has a history of engaging with money laundering, terrorism financing, and related non-compliant activities.

Prior to onboarding an individual into your organization, it would be wise to check their history and engagement with money laundering and terrorism financing per the AML compliance directives. Compliancely enables you to do this by searching the identities of the person in the PEP watch list.
