Enhanced Due Diligence

Even if an individual or company shows up as a PEP or has adverse media, it does not mean a regulated business cannot work with them. Even sanctions may depend on what lists cover a business. E.g. A European sanction may be ignored by a US business

It all depends on risk.

Armadillo’s Enhanced Due Diligence service via our Compliance Intelligence Unit (CIU) provides a detailed background check on any entity or individual, no matter where in the world they are located.

What is a PEP? A politically exposed person (PEP) is someone who is in a prominent position in public life which may make them vulnerable to corruption.

What is a Sanction? Sanctions are penalties imposed on individuals or businesses by governments that don’t apply to an existing law or rule. Sanctions checks are specialised searches that will flag whether an individual or business is prohibited from certain activities or industries.

What is Adverse Media? Adverse media is any kind of unfavourable information found across a wide variety of news sources. Adverse media checks are essential to uncover whether an individual or business is involved in money laundering, terrorist financing or financial crime.
