Ripjar AI Masterclass:

Secrets to Effective Adverse Media Screening

02 May, 2024

09:00 ET | 14:00 BST

Join Ripjar and FINTRAIL for an AI masterclass on adverse media screening, covering everything from regulatory perspectives and industry best practice, to practical advice on implementing AI technology for effective screening, deployment considerations and selecting vendors.

Countdown until the event

Adverse media searches in some form have always been expected by regulators. Data trends and an industry shift toward a risk-based approach for compliance have meant that screening for risks throughout multiple stages of the customer relationship requires a more comprehensive and forward-thinking strategy.

In this 90 minute masterclass, we’ll look at what firms need to consider when designing an effective and efficient adverse media approach. Through practical examples, we’ll discuss the core considerations for any firm seeking to enhance their risk management capabilities through robust adverse media screening. We will cover:

  • The what, why and when of adverse media, directly linked to regulatory guidance and a risk-based approach
  • The practicalities of designing adverse media controls – the sources, data inputs and what ‘good’ looks like 
  • The power of AI in adverse media screening – how the use of AI can supercharge your adverse media searches
  • What do you need to consider when deploying it – should you build or buy, and if you buy what are the key questions you should be asking your vendors?
