Watchlist & Media Screening
What Is Screening According To FICA:
Screening your clients against watchlist sanctions, Domestic Politically Exposed Persons (DPEPs), Foreign Politically Exposed Persons (FPEPs) and Prominent Influential Persons (PIPs) lists as well as adverse media is a critical element in determining a client’s risk profile and is a requirement imposed by FICA.
