You can easily integrate extended screening content from Dow Jones Risk and Compliance into your Compliance Screening solution. Three different content packages from Dow Jones are available: Sanctions Control & Ownership, Watchlist, and Trifecta. Comprehensive security – including PEP list and adverse media data as well as checks on bans of indirect provisions and more.
In this context, persons of special interest, or short SIP, describe individuals who pose an increased risk to business partners due to a criminal history. As with politically exposed persons (PEP), there are no lists available from official government bodies in the area of SIP that allow for direct screening.
Using licensed Factiva publications, Dow Jones research specialists conduct research on persons of special interest (SIP) to help companies mitigate risk to their business activities in this area. This research specifically relates to individuals who have been formally accused, arrested, or found guilty of serious crimes in the following six categories:
Dow Jones’ research specialists monitor and compile information on SIP individuals that fall into these categories. This SIP data from Dow Jones includes short profiles with an overview of the respective case as well as the content details of the Factiva articles used. Companies that want to automate comprehensive risk management including SIP checks can do so conveniently with the AEB software Compliance Screening software and the Dow Jones content package Watchlist.
In this context, the term “Adverse media entities” describes companies that have received negative media coverage – for example, in the areas of compliance, competition, finance, environment, production, social affairs, and labor law. Different sources are used for such coverage, including newspapers, TV stations, social media, online forums, and many more.
The monitoring of negative coverage on business partners is used to identify warning signals and compliance risks at an early stage and, if necessary, to be able to initiate necessary measures in good time to protect one's own company from reputational damage and further consequences.
With the comprehensive content from the Dow Jones package Trifecta, checking business partners against lists of adverse media entities is also possible – fully automated and integrated in the AEB software Compliance Screening.
The term "state-owned companies" includes companies that are partially or wholly owned or controlled by state governments. They are usually established by governments to carry out commercial activities and are licensed for certain activities. Such companies are subject to increased risks due to their close association with politically exposed persons (PEP) and because they can be found in high-risk industry sectors (e.g., raw material extraction) and politically unstable regions.
Business activities with such organizations increase trade compliance risks for companies – especially in the areas of bribery and corruption.
Dow Jones' dedicated list for "State-Owned Companies" includes aggregated state ownership, state voting controls, and state control of boards of directors. Automated checks are conveniently possible with the AEB software Compliance Screening and the Dow Jones content package Trifecta, to help companies comply with global anti-bribery and anti-corruption regulations.
“With businesses under more pressure than ever before to focus on compliance, we’re confident that our data offers best-in-class protection against financial crime activities. Working with Dow Jones’ sanctions lists will give AEB customers access to the most comprehensive and accurate data possible so they can meet their regulatory needs.”
