Dear Juri, Thanks for your note... I advise you to check SAMA Website “the banks regulator” in KSA and read their guidance in regards to how AML and PEPs are supposed to be handled.
Not many software that can help you in arabic speaking world. You have to translate the names by your analysts anyway.
Follow Up
Will try to share you r message with direct responsible person once Eid Vacation is over here in KSA.
You might take consultations from Deloitte as they have worked with SAMA to audit the control process in banks. Also SAS are specialized in AML platform and can help you too
Using deloitte custom build for our branches in gulf area. Not much to say, was really expensive to build & not that good.
Its easy to find PEP all over the world, but the matches are quite clumpsy. A lot of manual error filtering. Using TR.
Dear Thomas, thanks for the connection and question. We use Refinitiv, but not working well. Will connect you to our CIO responsible for that.
Thanks for connection, none of those mentioned are too much good in Saude, speak to local Deloitte they have some system. Or use worldcheck.
Using Worldcheck. Hard to identify if the person is the one we were looking for or not. For Saudi, you will need someone with Arabic translation.
We use worldcheck and have no need for nothing more.
Why don’t use the worldcheck?
Dear Petr, our team is using TR, now called Refinitiv. Has all the data need. What is your exact issue with them?
We use world check but there seems to be no real-time data update. Also difficult to track the number of users logged on and which organization they belong to. using it in three of our sub organizations.
Been using Worldcheck but lately we switched to Comply, WC got too many false alarms.
Excellent for checking the sanction lists, but really hard user interface. Our analysts had to be online with support several times a week. Really expensive.
Comply Advantage
We use comply advantate, just switched a year ago from TR. Quite ok at this moment, but not much datasets.
we use kompli qed, but not for Saudi.
Best to use is Comply Advantage, our company is a client for almost 2 years and no issues so far. But sometimes limiting functionality.
Best one to go is CA, but you have to trasnlate the names from arabic to engllish.
Own product
Stopped using world check after getting our clients frequently flagged, using our own research.
Speak to Deloitte, they help build us the system. Build some with SAS, recently switched
Using SAS product, not much trust in the data though.
Hi Jiri. We are working with SAS deployment, took a long time to implement but so far so good. Will give you contact if you want.
Using Jumio and IdNow for foreigners.
Best to use Jumio + manual search through sanction lists specific for SA.

Mohammad Alyousef
The most effective line of defense a financial institution can implement against risks related to its exposure to legal and administrative penalties, financial loss, or what may undermine the financial institution’s reputation, is an efficient and effective compliance program and that is not attainable without the right compliance officer. For nearly 15 years I have worked in various auditing and compliance positions to ensure that the institutions are adhering to governmental regulations and laws. I work closely with upper management and other staff to guarantee the institute's policies and procedures are being observed. My work requires researching, implementing, and managing the areas of regulations and laws, policies and procedures, consumer protection, and public interest laws. Additionally, I advise, oversee, and train the staff on these compliance procedures and often issue investigations related to possible non-compliance or to ensure compliance is taking place. Our work is a team effort and our effectiveness has been a result of comprehensive coaching, implicit trust, good faith, discipline, and total support of my team. I love what I do, have taken over a dozen courses to enhance my skills and I am on LinkedIn to exchange thoughts and ideas with like-minded individuals. Let’s connect. email:
