How Middesk helps with Watchlist screenings

Middesk runs watchlist screenings against all businesses created in our system. Given that watchlists commonly lack unique identifiers, Middesk leverages it's identity matching tools to determine if an entity matches any of the records available on all of the mentioned sanctions lists. Middesk will provide you with the status of each individual screening list result and will flag any potential matches for you to review in further detail.

In addition to the granular details about each watchlist, Middesk will also summarize the watchlist search as follows:
