Sanction screening is a process used to check individuals, organizations, or entities against official sanction lists.

Governments or international bodies create and maintain these lists to identify and restrict dealings with parties involved in illegal or prohibited activities, such as terrorism, human rights abuses, or nuclear proliferation.

✅ Presail Sanctions Screening

Presail’s KYC process includes automatic sanctions and watchlist screening of investors. The screening is done against UN, EU, US, and UK sanctions lists and other blacklists and exclusions lists.

The investor’s name, country, and other identifiers are checked and compared against data on the sanctions lists. If the investor or wallet is identified as a sanctioned person, you will be notified, and the investor is not permitted to invest.
