Feature Spotlight: How Risk Factors Accelerate Screening

10/03/23 6 minute read
Speed is the name of the game. If your teams can’t quickly and efficiently identify counterparty risk, it will be exponentially harder to remain compliant with the seemingly endless stream of new trade regulations

That’s why we added automated Risk Factors to Sayari Graph in 2022 – and have continued to grow and improve the list ever since; keeping up with regulatory risks are paramount to our product roadmap. Whether you’re vetting defense subcontractors, conducting due diligence on prospective customers, or complying with sanctions and anti-money laundering regulations, you can bulk screen your list of entities across more than 65 Risk Factors and additional risk-relevant criteria sourced from existing and enriched risk intelligence data, including Sayari-Curated forced labor data from the Sheffield Hallam University Reports.

How do Risk Factors Work?

Sayari Graph Risk Factors follow you through every step of your workflow, anywhere in the platform. It allows you to spot risks at a glance whether you’re building a relationship graph, viewing an entity’s profile, or investigating an entity’s relationships. Users can hover over risk icons for more detailed information on the nature and number of risks associated with the entity.

For more targeted investigations, you can screen by specific risk types to efficiently isolate the entity relationships that matter most to you. Additionally, Risk Factors surface both obvious and, more importantly, non-obvious or emerging risk. This allows you to learn more in less time – and without devoting additional resources to the project.
