Singapore/Hong Kong, 14 November 2023 – LSEG was awarded Best PEPs, Sanctions & Name Screening Solution in the 6th Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence 2023 at an in-person ceremony on 14 November 2023.

LSEG was recognised for World-Check One, the innovative solution which has been used for screening, due diligence and financial crime risk management for more than two decades. With over 4.8 million records, and following strict inclusion criteria to ensure accuracy, relevance, and alignment to legislation, World-Check One  covers all  the content required for screening, including sanctions, law enforcement, regulatory enforcement, PEPs, and adverse media. 

To ensure accurate and up-to-date information, World-Check One leverages the expertise, language and research capabilities of over 500 researchers situated in 240 countries and territories, and around-the-clock monitoring of sanction lists, regulatory and enforcement lists, and media sources. The database also contains hundreds of specific keywords and over 65 risk topics to help firms filter and drill down for more focused screening and reduce false positives.
