GlobalGateway Watchlist

GlobalGateway Watchlist is a watchlist screening and ongoing monitoring service that performs KYC, Sanctions, and AML checks. This watchlist service ensures customers’ userbases are at the lowest risk of sanction list presence, fraud, money laundering, corruption, financial crimes, and terrorism.

One of the most complete watchlist services on the market, GlobalGateway Watchlist is the AML compliance solution of choice for the world’s largest global marketplaces, financial institutions, and trading platforms. Fully integrated into the GlobalGateway platform, Watchlist connects to customers’ eIDV onboarding journeys via a single API to screen and monitor their users against 6,000+ global watchlists and 20,000+ Adverse Media lists both at the point of onboarding and continuously thereafter.


How GlobalGateway Watchlist Checking Works

  • GlobalGateway Watchlist uses the same request structure as the rest of GlobalGateway allowing users to receive both the Watchlist and IDV results in a single API Call
  • GlobalGateway checks the request information against a multitude of global watchlists, adverse media, and PEP sources worldwide
  • If there is a potential match or a “hit” on the watchlist, further detail is shown in the appended fields
  • The detailed information provided lets clients determine the applicability of the watchlist hit and determine their next steps

📘

Clients using both Watchlist and Identity Services

  • Trulioo clients who enable the GlobalGateway Watchlist with their verification services receive two distinct sets of data per identity-check
  • The first verifies the identity of an individual and the second checks against a multitude of government sanction lists, adverse media, and PEPs worldwide
