FIS Prime Databank SDN & Watch Lists Details

FIS Prime Compliance Databank compiles information on designated individuals from the following sources:

1. Politically Exposed Persons List (PEP)
It is a requirement that institutions are aware of dealings with "Politically Exposed Persons". The term Politically Exposed Persons ("PEPs") applies to those individuals who perform public functions for a government or administrative body, members of ruling royal families, as well as influential people in religious organizations that have a sphere of influence over political, military or judicial matters. Also of regulatory significance are the family and close associates of Politically Exposed Persons. All information is derived from publicly available sources and is screened for quality.
Since the financial transactions of individuals identified as PEPs and their associates may be of interest to those organizations acting as their agent, it is incumbent upon financial institutions to know their customers and identify PEPs with which they do business. FIS' Politically Exposed Persons data subscription will enable organizations to do just that.
2. Financial Fraud List
Any Know Your Customer program would not be complete without the identification of customers who may have committed financial misdeeds. Furthermore, it is in a financial institution's best interests to understand who might pose a substantial risk to the organization. It is with that intent that the Fraud Database was created.
Fraud data has been collected from a variety of publicly accessible sites from around the world to create a repository against which names can be filtered. The names and other identifying information, when available, of those charged with financial misconduct have been gathered from a variety of government, financial, and news sources. This data will be continually updated as events happen and new sources are incorporated.
3. Financially Exposed Persons List (FEP)
It has been suggested by various banking consortiums that enhanced due diligence should be given to those individuals who have access to corporate wealth due to their positions within a corporation. Such individuals warrant identification and extra scrutiny as part of a financial organization's "Know Your Customer" policy. FIS refers to these individuals as Financially Exposed Persons ("FEPs"), which applies to those individuals who hold executive management or board positions in the worlds' largest companies. All information is derived from publicly available sources, and includes discriminating information about each person, as well as a link back to the corporate web site with which they are affiliated.
4. Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act List
The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, part of the Security and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act, was passed in the United States in order to prevent financial institutions and credit card companies from processing payments to settle bets made on the Internet. The United States Government does not provide a list of those sites and companies with which financial institutions are prohibited from transacting payments, however. In order to fill this void and to provide our customers with the ability to comply with this regulation, Prime has compiled a list of Internet gambling sites to allow financial institutions the ability to filter for these entities.
5. BIS Denied Persons List (DPL)
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce is responsible for the regulation of exports for national security, foreign policy, and nonproliferation reasons, as well as the enforcement of those regulations.
