Keep the bad actors out.

Whether you’re operating locally or internationally, you need a watchlist screening solution that circles the globe.

Through GlobalGateway Watchlist, you can ensure your user base has the lowest risk of fraud, money laundering, corruption, financial crime and terrorism — all through a single, easy-to-integrate API.

With expanded global coverage, continuous monitoring and customizable risk thresholds, it has never been easier to perform Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks for users and crypto wallets.

Screen and monitor against thousands of AML watchlists around the world that are updated in real-time, including:

  • OFAC
  • U.N. Terrorism list
  • Her Majesty’s Treasury
  • EU Sanction Lists
  • The Dept. of Foreign Affairs & Trade
  • And thousands more!

Here’s how we perform AML watchlist screening.

1. A customer submits personally identifiable information (PII) when creating an account online.

2. The identity data is compared to global AML watchlists.

3. GlobalGateway flags a customer if their name appears on any watchlists, sanctions lists or PEP lists.

4. Customers are continuously monitored thereafter to ensure user integrity throughout the identity lifecycle.

Did you know? 

Every year, an estimated $800 billion to $2 trillion gets laundered around the world, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. And Anti-Money Laundering programs currently catch only 1% of that money. Global identity verification is essential for keeping more dirty money out of our economy.
