Review - key benefits

Accurate entity name matching

Benefit from high performance entity resolution. When you submit a name of an individual or entity it moves through a series of steps for accurate entity resolution. These steps consider multiple variables including linguistic culture, spelling alternatives and word order. This results in fewer false positives and more relevant screening results.

Detailed and structured risk profiles

Your name matches are returned in the form of risk profiles so you can see all associated risk-relevant data for an individual or entity in a single structured report. A short summary of the most relevant risk information is given, followed by a breakdown of each risk event identified through adverse media, PEP and sanctions information. Risk events are clearly identified by their type, stage and date.

Customized risk screening

Choose a pre-set risk configuration or completely customize your screening alerts according to the risk categories, offence stages and risk age relevant to your organization. 

  • Filter by more than 50 risk categories from money laundering and bribery, to cybercrime and human trafficking
  • Define the offence stages you want to consider from more than 35 categories, ranging from accusation to charged and convicted
  • Exclude risk according to the age it materialised
  • Reconfigure your risk profile at any time to align with changing regulation and emerging risks

Flexible alert management

You can choose to have first level alerts reviewed by our team of analysts or processed by our AI solution to remove false positives and irrelevant results. These options mean that your team can focus on relevant risk alerts, make faster decisions and scale your screening operation without additional burden.

Automated portfolio monitoring

Move a step closer to perpetual KYC processes with automated daily monitoring of your client portfolio. You will be alerted to relevant new risk information as it gets added to Grid, prioritized according to your risk guidelines. This allows you to respond quickly to emerging risk intelligence associated with your clients, without having to conduct manual periodic reviews.

Dashboards and analytics via our View option

Review dashboards logoOur dashboards give you analytics on your screening activity so you can identify trends, track enquiry volumes, spot anomalies and measure screening performance across multiple business lines and regions.

Grid - the data that powers Review

Grid - key facts and figures

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.


SanctionsGrid’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:

  • Corporate structures and shareholdings
  • Affiliates
  • Board members and senior officials
  • Family members
  • Other close associates

Get a more precise, customized view on PEPs

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:

  • Position risk
    An assessment of someone’s seniority and role using 17 PEP ‘types’ and 4 PEP ‘levels’
  • Country risk
    Considers industry accepted indices of country corruption and economic freedom.
  • Event risk
    An analysis of adverse media relevant to the individual.

Our categories, and our PEPs types and levels, mean you can filter and rank PEP data accurately and benefit from fully customizable risk screening. You can then combine our analysis with your own risk scoring, and risk profiles.

Leading with technology

Machine learning with AI Review

Our base machine learning model has been trained on millions of alert processing decisions made by our analysts for clients around the world. This data powers the model to accurately determine whether a screening match should be alerted or if it’s a false positive by assigning a confidence score. The base model can be enhanced by training it on data specific to your organization typically in around five to 10 days. This can significantly increase the model’s confidence score, further reducing false positives and helping to prioritize relevant alerts.

AI with human influence 

Our approach to AI is to use models that are explainable and assessed by human expertise pre- and post-implementation. We provide full transparency of our training models and quality control. All model variants, training and test data are retained so that results are auditable and fully traceable. Our model risk management program ensures the ongoing accuracy and performance of this technology, based on best practice guidance from financial regulators.
