What is World Check?

World Check, also known as Refinitiv World Check, is a comprehensive database actively used for comprehensive analytical procedures, know-your-customer (KYC) audits, and third-party risk assessments. Simply put, World Check and similar databases serve as a tool for financial institutions, law firms, insurance agencies and various other organisations to perform mandatory customer due diligence checks. These checks include the collection and ongoing updating of personal information about customers.

The data sources for World Check come from a variety of external information providers, including data on individuals who may be classified as high risk in the context of anti-money laundering (AML). These individuals include individuals defined as Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), those on the sanctions list, and those with a history of legal, regulatory or criminal problems. Due to these circumstances, they are subject to detailed due diligence checks and financial audits.

Examples of World Check database applications include tracking transactions and financial flows related to sanctions-listed individuals, preventing interactions with individuals involved in corrupt practices, and screening for possible involvement in terrorist activities, organised crime, and economic crimes (embezzlement, tax evasion, money laundering, fraud). This data helps institutions to comply with international and national legislation, preventing financial risks and preserving their company’s reputation.

How can these databases affect me?

The companies that operate these databases may seem like obscure organisations, but the impact they can have on an individual’s ability to freely operate, travel and conduct business in a global world is significant. In seemingly routine activities such as opening a bank account, renting a flat, obtaining a loan, hiring a lawyer or starting a business relationship, individuals are subject to a multitude of regulatory and legal checks.

It is at this stage that these databases become an invaluable source of information on which institutions and organisations rely when deciding whether to engage with a particular individual. Consequently, there can understandably be significant negative consequences for potential clients if these databases contain negative or inaccurate information.

Removing negative information from LexisNexis and World Check databases is an investment in your digital security and peace of mind, as well as in your family’s good name and reputation, ensuring that your personal data and information related to you will be handled with the utmost confidentiality and professionalism, and negative mentions in this vein will be permanently removed.

Please contact us to discuss the details of your case. Our lawyers do not charge for initial consultation and review of the case files.
