  1. 1. LexisNexis Bridger Insight Case Study Use LexisNexis Bridger Insight to screen your customers against sanctions, PEPs and watch lists. How LexisNexis will help? Prudential required a solution that could screen millions of customers against sanctions, Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) and their own internal watch lists every day. About Prudential Prudential UK is a leading life and pensions provider to approximately 7 million customers in the United Kingdom. As an insurer they need to comply with the sanctions regime to avoid being at risk of heavy fines and to protect their corporate reputation. This means regular screening of clients against sanctions and watch lists to ensure they know who they are doing business with. The challenge There is increasing focus on sanctions screening in the UK with the UN only recently imposing further sanctions on Iran. A report published by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), ‘Financial services firms’ approach to UK financial sanctions’ in April 2009 also has encouraged companies to review their approach to sanctions screening. The Financial Crime Prevention team at Prudential decided to review their existing screening arrangements to ensure they had the best process possible in place. The fuzzy-name matching algorithm delivered excellent results which were easy to understand. Bridger Insight from LexisNexis is a software solution which employs a sophisticated fuzzy-name matching algorithm to screen large volumes of clients against all the required lists. It will alert Prudential when there is a match allowing them to take immediate action. To maintain control Prudential have chosen to install Bridger Insight behind their own firewall.
