Welcome to the world's largest collection of PEP data. Over 3 million PEP profiles all in one place. 

World-PEP Database

World-PEP is a PEP screening database designed to enable you check your client records against verified list of Politically Exposed Persons (PEP), Specially Designated Individuals (SDN), and Internationally Sanctioned Persons (ISP). World-PEP has been developed to assist reporting entities in meeting their obligations under AML/CTF regulations in an efficient, user-friendly, and cost-effective manner. World-PEP is designed to reduce your institution’s potential exposure to PEP and KYC risk using a bespoke platform to provide up-to-date risk profiles of politically exposed persons and sanctioned individuals.

The World-PEP database provides detailed coverage in 240 countries, with a special emphasis on key countries posing greater risk to our clients, requiring greater depth of information, including information on opposition party members, shadow government officials, influence peddlers, and other risk-relevant individuals. Our PEPs database was vetted and shaped by experts from the Wolfsberg Group, the U.S. intelligence community, FATF, and former AML officers. We have more adverse media and risk relevant items to build risk profiles that reveal the true risk of a person.

Global PEP Screening 

World-PEP maintains a list of more than a 2.2 million politically exposed persons and their associates across more than 240 countries including the UK and US. A designation as a politically exposed person - a PEP - doesn’t necessarily imply any wrongdoing on the part of the designee. It does imply risk. World-PEP enables reporting entities to reduce their exposure to PEPs from high-risk jurisdictions.

Global SDN Screening 

World-PEP maintains an updated list of specially designated nationals identified by OFAC. As part of its enforcement efforts, OFAC publishes a list of individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific. Collectively, such individuals and companies are called "Specially Designated Nationals" or "SDNs." Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them.
