Having worked together since 2018, we’re delighted to announce that Ripjar and Dow Jones have formed a new strategic partnership to better serve the risk and compliance market. Ripjar has a long, successful history of working with Dow Jones, in which customers benefit from the industry-leading expertise and services of each company.
Ripjar’s CEO, Jeremy Annis, said, “I’m delighted to welcome Dow Jones to Ripjar and am confident that with the strength of Dow Jones’ best-in-class data combined with Ripjar’s industry-leading technology platform we will be able to better serve our customers and protect them from threats of criminal activity.”
Almar Latour, Chief Executive Officer of Dow Jones and publisher of The Wall Street Journal said, “Dow Jones’s mission is to provide the world’s most trusted journalism, data, and analysis to help people make decisions. Our investment in Ripjar extends the reach of that mission. It’s another example of our strategic pursuit of opportunities to leverage our more than 130 years of experience processing news and information. This heritage gives us the editorial expertise to identify credible sources to help customers in the fight against financial crime.”
Benefits for Ripjar Customers
As regulatory and industry advisory bodies are increasingly advising the use of adverse media screening as part of the customer due diligence process, our strengthened partnership with Dow Jones will bring significant additional benefits to our customers.
We’re pleased to be building on our existing work with Dow Jones to deliver a next-generation SaaS solution for sanctions and adverse media screening. This new capability will enable customers to benefit from large-scale screening and monitoring of Dow Jones’s premium content and other high quality data sources. This includes access to thousands of licensed news sources from Dow Jones’ global news database, Factiva.
Ripjar’s Jeremy Annis said, “The new SaaS solution is fundamental to the next level of service we will deliver to the market. It allows for even faster, more efficient, and high-volume screening while reducing the occurrence of false positives and duplication that can waste customer time and resources.”
“Expanding our partnership with Ripjar supports Dow Jones’s continued commitment to invest in innovative technology solutions that drive exceptional customer experiences,” said Joel Lange, General Manager, Dow Jones Risk & Compliance. “Ripjar’s technology platform is a strong complement to our news capabilities and the additional data sets and applications we’ve developed specifically for compliance requirements and workflows. This includes anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing, sanctions, anti-bribery and corruption, and international trade compliance.”
