Regulated financial service companies, estate agents and law firms have a legal and regulatory obligation to continuously screen and monitor various aspects of their business. These include their clients, related controlling parties and beneficial owners. However, screening and monitoring against anti-money laundering (AML) activities, domestic and international sanction, embargoes and Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) lists as well as for adverse media can be a very time consuming and costly.
This process also relies on expensive software and professional expertise. Furthermore, global anti-money laundering activities have increased expediently over the last couple of decades with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) indicating that the estimated global amount of money laundering in a single year can include anything from $800 billion to $2 trillion.
