Filter TypeDescription
Include CountriesIf included, this filter will only return alerts that are on profiles that indicate that the main country of residence/activity is in the included country. Please note that if this filter is used, we advise to also use the 2 additional filters for undefined and supra-Nationals. This will include alerts generated for subjects that cannot be readily assigned to a country.
Exclude Ex-PEPsIf included, this filter excludes alerts that would have been generated on individuals that have left the office that attracted their 'PEP status' for a defined period of time. For a risk-based approach, it is normally appropriate to consider ex-PEPs for some time; however, this time will differ based on the risk profile of the business that your organization conducts.
Exclude Individuals/EntitiesWhen applied, this filter will suppress alerts that are generated on either individuals (if you are conducting a search on a known business/entity) OR suppress entities (if conducting a search on a known individual).
Ignore Accented CharactersWhen applied, this setting will suppress any accented characters in a record to their standard base English character. i.e., Pierre André would become Pierre Andre. (This is false by default)
