Adverse Media Screening

AI technology has the potential to transform adverse media screening.

Critical money laundering-related information on a financial institution’s clients may be found in media sources. However, traditional technology used in adverse media screening is proving inefficient and ineffective in scanning a vast and rapidly expanding media universe—limiting its application to only known high-risk actors. 

Combatting financial crime in the digital era will require financial institutions (FIs) to strengthen and widen their adverse media screening coverage while improving efficiency and effectiveness of the process. Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered solutions have the potential to transform adverse media screening and enable more frequent, dynamic, and proactive monitoring of customer risk.

Beyond improving efficiency and effectiveness of current adverse media screening programs, AI-powered solutions can open new horizons in customer screening. They can enable connecting adverse media screening with other screening processes and make it more dynamic and continuous—enabling FIs to take a more holistic, proactive, and risk-based approach in customer screening.

What is Adverse Media? 

Adverse media or negative news is any unfavorable information about an individual’s or entity’s potential involvement in financial crime-related activities. 

Negative news may be found in several sources. 

  • It could be “traditional” news outlets like newspapers or broadcast news. 
  • Negative news can also be found in nontraditional media such as blogs, web posts, social media, and other forums. 

Adverse media analysis can play an important role in AML, but traditional technology used to monitor a vast and exponentially growing universe of adverse media sources is proving inefficient.
