PEP Checks for KYC/AML

PEP Checks for KYC/AML

Streamline Your Due Diligence on Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs)

Stay Ahead of Sanctions Enforcement

Avoid making investments with illegally sourced funds. That is a key tenet of international regulation around anti-money laundering (AML), Know Your Customer (KYC), and counter-terrorism financing (CTF) checks.

PEP-Check by SIX takes the pain out of conducting due diligence against lists of politically exposed persons (PEPs), official sanctions, watch-lists, and blacklists. Whether you are onboarding new customers, conducting routine screenings, checking transactions, or kick-starting in-depth investigations, you can do so with speed and accuracy.

As the demand for deeper KYC, AML and PEP due diligence increases, our PEP-Check service produces detailed results for the legally required checks on economic crime, money laundering and terrorism funding.
