How does PEP Desk™ compare to providers of similar products and services?
  • We focus on providing our customers with the relevant information they need for their decision-making. Therefore, we separate compliance information into different databases that serve different regulatory and compliance purposes. Our PEP Desk™ database is often compared to other products in the market which contain different kinds of compliance data (sanctions, PEPs, other lists and news). Such databases may appear interesting but can be biased or even completely irrelevant for most internal processes and regulatory needs.

    Info4c PEP Desk™ is ideal for the purpose of identifying PEPs; it contains information in line with regulatory requirements, definitions of politically exposed persons and other important categories. This avoids unnecessary work, maximizes cost-efficiency in matching portfolios of names, and minimizes the effort in analyzing the end results. In addition, the categorization and structure of our database allows the client to customize and select information in line with internal guidelines, local requirements and additional needs (the definition of PEPs is subject to differences in different jurisdictions and might be also different from institution to institution within the confines of regulatory limits). Our database assures an optimal due diligence compliance mechanism.

    For clients who wish additional compliance-relevant information beyond the PEP Desks, info4c offers a separate “Watchlists & Blacklists” database and sanctions lists.

What kind of sources do you revert to for the update of your PEP Desk™?
  • Sources of information for PEP Desk™ are primarily official government websites (presidency, prime minister & cabinet ministers, legislative bodies, supreme courts of justice, military administration etc.) and official gazettes where laws, decrees, investitures and depositions are published.

How often do you update your databases?
  • The PEP Desk™ is updated constantly. Standard prices are based on monthly deliveries. Sanction lists are updated daily and standard prices are based on deliveries every 2 weeks. Watchlists & Blacklists are updated individually at different times (more than 1000 lists from over 80 countries).
