Basel Open Intelligence

Targeted research for compliance and due diligence

Basel Open Intelligence is a powerful tool to streamline research as part of compliance processes, third-party due diligence and screening of new employees.

With a single click, it runs multilingual, open-source searches for names in combination with more than 200 keywords. If there is negative media or other public information about a person or company’s links to financial crime, law enforcement, judicial actions, Basel Open Intelligence will help you find it. The tool also helps you identify risks associated with individuals on PEP and sanctions lists.

Basel Open Intelligence helps you filter out the masses of information flooding the internet and to meet regulatory requirements around KYC and third parties, due diligence and AML/CFT.
