Screening services

In Banking and Capital Markets

EY screening services help financial institutions transform their screening policies, technology and operations. Part of the EY Financial Crime solution, our investigative screening and consulting services leverage our FinCrime technology platform, technology alliances, integrated global delivery model and regulatory experience.

Your business challenge

Financial institutions that can enhance screening and investigations can improve compliance while reducing operational costs. But effective screening of customers and counterparties is becoming more difficult due to several factors: 

  • Increasingly sophisticated efforts to hide true identities and beneficial owners 
  • Emergence of new, real-time financial products and channels
  • Fast-evolving regulations
  • Ever-changing sanction lists of individuals and entities as a result of geopolitical and country-specific changes
  • Legacy, rules-based systems that generate many false-positive alerts
  • Scarce talent to manage screening and investigation; expensive to recruit, train and retain
