Lexis Diligence®: more than a PEP screening tool.

Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) are individuals who hold public office and their immediate family members, close business associates, as well as senior executives of state owned enterprises. It is important to know whether you are doing business with PEP, because they present a higher risk for potential involvement with bribery and corruption.

However, finding out which persons are considered to be PEPs in all the countries you are doing business, and performing background checks of potential new business relations is not an easy task. Unless you use Lexis Diligence.
