How it works

Country Risk Ranking in more detail 

Country Risk Ranking is accessible as an Advanced embedded feature or as a stand-alone product. It is also accessible through a direct data download in CSV and XML formats, with industry standard security protocols. For greater efficiency in compliance operations, you can import the data directly into internal systems. Country Risk Ranking is available within the BRI Connect App. This functionality gives you the ability to check for location-based risk of any Belt and Road Initiative project you may consider investing in or partnering with.

Effective screening for third-party risk

Organizations with global supply chains are subject to strict anti-corruption laws, like the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), UK Bribery Act (UKBA), and, more recently, the UK Modern Slavery Act.

Country risk intelligence can be a critical tool in mitigating location-based risks within supply chains and can help you stay on top of developments and regulations.

Location-based PEP screening

Check a politically exposed person (PEP) that has been flagged in the KYC screen for any possible location-based risk. For advanced subscription clients, a PEP Filter is available as one of the dynamic Data File download options.

Anti-money laundering compliance

Identify geographic locations that may pose a higher risk for doing business, opening accounts for customers, or facilitating transactions.
