Frequently asked questions

ComplyAdvantage’s adverse media solution looks at tens of millions of articles from sources, including international news websites, regional and local news sites, government websites, court judgments, and specialist blogs. These sites cover the globe and are processed by our machine learning models in multiple languages.

For a new source to be added to our coverage it must satisfy our internal assessment criteria, which include:

  • The source should publish negative news articles that would help our clients identify risks related to financial crime.
  • The source should not be found to propagate false information, conspiracies or satire.
  • The source must publish its own material and not rely on syndicated content.

ComplyAdvantage periodically reviews the sources covered by our adverse media solution, to remove or rectify any sources which have closed down, merged or rebranded. New credible sources are added based on targeted improvements or feedback from our active client base of hundreds of financial companies.

Our adverse media data currently screens against over 11,000 verified national, regional, and local media sources across 200+ countries and territories.
