Grid is a risk database of adverse media, sanctions, watchlists and PEPs. It’s the most comprehensive database of its kind. Risk information is curated into detailed profiles, by individual or organization, so you can see all associated risk-relevant data in structured detailed reports.
Grid helps you screen more effectively. Its combination of comprehensive data and categorization means you can filter content by risk type, risk stage and risk age, based on relevance and your own risk profiles, resulting in more precision, fewer false positive results and more efficiency.
Grid has around 13 million risk profiles. A risk profile can be about a person, or an organization, and it’s a collation of risk-relevant information relating to that entity.
Grid takes information from over 120,000 sources, covers 240 countries and territories and over 3 billion articles from the last 10 years.
It includes adverse media, sanctions and watchlists, PEPs and other focused datasets around risk themes including Iran, the Panama Papers, and marijuana-related businesses.
Grid’s Sanctions Connect is a comprehensive global sanctions database that shows connections to sanctioned individuals and organizations in over 100 countries including Iran, and more than 1,000 separate watchlists and sanction lists.
Designed for accurate risk screening to help you adhere to sanctions regulations and export controls, it shows clear relationships and links so you can check and monitor for even distant associations to sanctions. Highlighted relationships include:

Precise filters: precise alerts
Our highly categorized articles include more than 50 risk codes and 30 risk stages for precise filtering and precise alerting.
Detailed categories include terrorism, human trafficking, organized crime, cyber crime and environmental crime. These categories align to the AML6 Predicate Offences and the designated categories of offences in the FATF Recommendations.
Integrate with your own systems and processes in a few simple steps.
Both directives specify a list of money laundering offences – 22 predicate offences for AML6 and a similar list of designated categories of offences for FATF.
Good practice will suggest your adverse media screening identifies risk associated with these offences.
We have over 50 risk categories - all 22 predicate offences are in our listed categories – so you can be confident we’re “regulation relevant”. And you can turn on/off specific risk categories to align your risk profile with the offences - so you can tailor your screening according to your risk-based approach.
Our PEPs solution combines information on almost 2 million PEPs in more than 240 countries and territories. All individuals are categorised to help you assess risk more accurately.
PEP coverage includes a country’s political hierarchy and their connections, senior officeholders, military officials, judicial figures, directors of state-controlled/invested enterprises, regional and municipal officials, legislators, senior political party officials, along with family members and close associates.
For countries that are considered to pose high risk, and where more investigative depth is required, we also include information on opposition party members, shadow government officials, influence peddlers, and other risk-relevant individuals.
Our PEP rating categorisation includes:
Grid is available within Compliance Catalyst, Review, API, batch uploading and an online portal delivery.
Our dataset for Marijuana Related Businesses (MRB) contains thousands of entities and individuals throughout the supply chain.
We captured and treated the 300,000+ profiles from the Panama Papers. Splitting up combined names and removing extraneous information for better name matching and parsing addresses into correct fields: street address, city, state, country.
You can choose to screen against the full Panama Papers list or only against the entities with other negative information. Or simply get a list of all potential matches if required.
A dataset that provides information on the individuals and organizations associated with sanctioned entities. Covering all sanctioned countries and entities, it establishes connections to individuals and organizations spanning over 100 countries. Organization relationships include:
A dataset that’s designed to help you comply with the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act (CISADA) of 2010. CISADA expands upon the 1996 Iran Sanctions Act and the Iranian Transaction Regulations administered by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
The dataset provides detailed, profiles of Iran-relevant entities and the associated individuals and organizations. These are kept current as new information or details emerge. The profiles for each entity include addresses, aliases, connections and relationships to other records, dates of birth when available, and source information.
Information is sourced from foreign Chambers of Commerce, Middle East business advocacy journals, public source research of IRGC-affiliated persons and organizations inside and outside Iran and any subsidiaries under their control, foreign banks conducting business with the IRGC or IRGC front companies; full mining of relevant investigative reporting and key think tank research on Iran.
We aim to help you uncover risk that’s hidden in unstructured news articles. We monitor the earliest indications of risk – from accusation to conviction.
As part of your screening you’ll need to review both state owned enterprises (SOEs), and state invested enterprises, and make sure you recognize their directors and board members as PEPs.
Grid now pulls this data from Orbis – the world’s leading entity database.
Orbis shows you companies who are recognizably SOEs. It also shows you companies that are calculated to be SOEs by its ownership algorithms. These ‘calculated’ SOEs should also be considered SOEs in screening programs.
Grid is easy to customize and offers you enormous flexibility in how you can configure it to suit you.
Combine more than 50 risk types and 35 risk categories and include filters on risk type, risk age, risk stage and the matching threshold. You can create unlimited screening configurations and revisit them at any time. The result is a screening system that’s tailored to your risk appetite, rules and that gives you control on the content and type of alerts you receive and their precision thresholds.
