NOTE: No data set can contain comprehensive criminality and regulatory information on a global basis and Info Cubic does not claim to do so. We do not recommend using this product as a standalone international criminal search; rather, it is best used in conjunction with a physical/real time search of local court, police records and most importantly when a local record check is not available/possible. Type of content will vary depending on the country. This information does not constitute legal advice. Consultation with qualified legal counsel is highly recommended.

Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) Database
Politically Exposed Person’s (PEP’s) pose a threat to financial institutions and financial service companies. This database contains hundreds of thousands of records pertaining to individuals who are, or who have been, entrusted with prominent public functions, including Heads of State, senior politicians, executives, and government figures, members of ruling royal families, judicial, police and military officials, influential people in religious organizations, and others who have influence over political, military or judicial matters. These individuals have been found to pose a threat to financial institutions and companies under new anti‐money laundering legislation (e.g. the USA Patriot Act) and to multinational corporations under various international anticorruption legislations (such as FCPA). Research stems from daily search of media sources and other public websites globally as well as from past due diligence investigations.

Terrorism Risk
This database contains profiles of rebels, terrorists, military groups, and other individuals (including key members of these groups) collected from web and media sources and other sources of documented incidences of terrorism across the world. Most entries are supported by photographs, which serves as the best identifier for KYC screening (under Patriot Act regulations). This database covers data from sources like the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, Monetary Authority of Singapore, European Union Sanctions, United Nations Consolidated List, Office of Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) Consolidated, Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade, Australia, AusTRAC, Reserve Bank of Australia, Central Bank of UAE, and many others.

Prominent Scientists
Recent nuclear proliferation incidents have shown how important it is to track the bank accounts of prominent scientists. This database contains information on scientists (particularly those involved in nuclear or biological/chemical warfare research) as compiled from strategic and major scientific research institutions across the globe.

Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC Plus)
Maintained by the US Treasury Department, this contains information on economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, and those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Many of the imposed sanctions (which can include a freeze of foreign assets) are based on United Nations and other international mandates and involve close cooperation with allied governments. This database is comprised of the current OFAC designated names PLUS those names that have been deleted from the prior OFAC list PLUS other information (augmented by further research where possible) identifying further connected individuals and corporations.

Bank of England
Contains information provided by financial institutions who under the Bank of England (acting as agent for Her Majesty’s Treasury) have been directed to freeze and report the information on any funds held by or belong to organizations or individuals who have been linked to acts of terrorism (either by committing, attempting to commit, or participation in the commission of acts of terrorism). As it is mandatory for all financial institutions that are directly or indirectly regulated by the Bank of England to scan all existing and prospective account holders, check of this database will protect against penal action and cancellation of licenses to operate as a financial intermediary.

Corruption Risk Database
This is a proprietary database compiled of over 10,000 global media sources on individuals and/or entities associated with corruption, bribery, and related crimes. Where possible, the incidents have been further researched with the help of offline records to identify other entities that may be associated with the incident.

Fraud Risk Database
Comprised of data compiled from over 10,000 global media sources on entities associated with incidents of fraudulent activity and other related crimes. These sources are “data-mined” by our sophisticated search strings for incidents relating to fraud. When applicable, also contains augmented information from offline records further identifying these individuals.

Money Laundering Risk Database
Data on entities associated with incidents of money laundering and other related crimes as reported by over 10,000 global media sources. Where possible, research has been augmented with offline records to identify additional individuals that may be associated with the incident in questions.

The Cube Feature

The Global Monitor Check is often used by employers to occasionally screen their entire workforce, or a subset of employees, to ensure nothing new appears on their record after they have begun employment. Using The Cube’s batch ordering process is very simple way to run a large group of employees at once to complete annual, semi-annual, or quarterly screening.
