At the forefront

The WorldCompliance headquarters office is strategically located in Miami, Florida—home to one of the largest concentrations of international banks in the United States. WorldCompliance's research methodology is specifically designed to help manage and mitigate risk in order to comply with international regulations and protect your reputation. Our global intelligence units investigate cases and events around the clock to give your organization an edge.

How we do it

WorldCompliance combines the intellectual resources of highly trained investigators and research analysts with the capabilities of dynamic technology to provide organizations with the most relevant information. Our multilingual research staff, strategically located around the world, monitor the following sources daily:

  • Over 800 enforcement agencies' data
  • More than 25,000 newspapers and magazines
  • Company records
  • International court filings
  • Global sanction lists

Then, our specialized agents combine those results with sanction lists, enforcement warnings, FCPA violations, media reports, and profiles of high-risk individuals to produce in-depth, high-quality profiles. This detailed process ensures that our clients have real-time access to the objective information needed to protect the reputation of their organization. You then have the ability to focus resources on your core business activities while significantly reducing resources invested in investigating false positives.

The screening process simplified

Data compilation

Our investigative teams mine media channels, websites and official records worldwide to compile data on individuals and organizations linked to high risk activities.

Data validation

Once compiled, the teams analyze the results to produce a profile. Each profile takes an average of four hours to complete in order to ensure that the information is accurate.

Profile summary

Each profile contains unique identifiers such as photos, DOB and passport numbers. In addition, each profile has a complete relationship web identifying and linking the entities family members and business associates.

Data updates

Once validated, profiles are routinely updated as soon as there is a change; whether it’s a change of address or the addition of a new relationship to the profile.

Data modules

The profile contents are compiled into a series of database modules, which can be tailored according to your business’s needs.

These are:

  • Global Adverse Media: an extensive proprietary database of entities that have been linked to illicit activities by news sources
  • Global Enforcement: Comprised of information received from regulatory and governmental authorities
  • Global PEP: Includes profiles of Politically Exposed Persons, as well as those of their family members and close associates
  • Global Sanction: Aggregates information from the most important sanction lists around the world and groups them into one category
