Adverse Media: Not just for big banks (and here’s why)

Know Your Customer compliance has never been more critical. Regulators expect banks to properly evaluate their correspondents and put appropriate risk controls in place. In this session, Alex Tame, Global Head of Partners and Content Integration at Dow Jones, will discuss how banks can use negative news and regulatory findings about (potential) counterparties to improve KYC and Customer Due Diligence processes. Dow Jones Adverse Media data is available through the SWIFT KYC Registry, where new pricing makes it affordable for even the smallest Registry users.
