Accuity, a leading worldwide provider of financial data, software and services, today announced that its Global WatchList has achieved 100% coverage of all regulatory sanction lists for all countries worldwide.
Global WatchList, one element of Accuity's Compliance Suite, is a comprehensive collection of caution lists from all major sanctioning bodies, law enforcement agencies and financial regulators from around the world.
Accuity audits its Global WatchList coverage each year to ensure that it can offer its customers the most comprehensive regulatory due diligence list coverage available. The audit involves researching the regulatory requirements and contacting the regulating authorities of over 200 countries and territories. After completing this year's audit, Accuity has determined that every list required for regulatory due diligence in all countries that have such requirements is now a part of the Global WatchList suite.
"This is a very ambitious research and data collection effort but well worth it," says Brent Newman, managing director for Accuity. "Offering 100% worldwide regulatory due diligence coverage firmly positions Accuity's Compliance Suite as a one-stop shop for any potential customer's compliance and Know Your Customer needs."
The array of lists that make up Global WatchList is offered in a "cafeteria style" format—clients choose only those lists that are necessary to meet their compliance needs.
