Grid filtering capabilities

Moody's offers powerful data filtering capabilities to ensure screening results match your unique business needs and risk requirements.

Grid offers the following filtering strategies for screening:

  • Firm filters: Identity-related filter expressions that exclude matches based on the acceptable likelihood of an identity match. Filters are based on the context of a search and the same filter can be defined multiple ways.

  • CVIP filter: The customizable CVIP filter acts as a bucketing system to categorize events as Critical-Valuable-Investigative-Probative and narrow match results based on your risk profile. Risk-related filters restrict matches based on firm-specific risk requirements.

    • Each Grid record is tagged with at least one event/subcategory code combination, a type, such as a person or organization, and a date.

  • iList include/exclude lists: This screening solution uses integrated match rules that either filter on matches or alert on results that no-match, such as block or country lists. Custom firm lists and Moody's Standard iList collection are available with this feature.

    • iList offers three types of lists: Person, Organization, and Country.

    • Lists can be configured to use match score thresholds for an allow listing to be conditional based on events or dates. 

    • Alerts based on a country, even if the name does not match are permitted.

    • Firms can update their own custom lists through the Grid web interface. For more frequent updates, an automated SFTP process is also available.

  • Knowledge tags: Use knowledge tags to classify or filter alerts based on themes and topics outside of event codes. These hashtag-like system meta tags are linked to risk events on Grid profiles.

    • Assigned through adverse media or monitored lists.

    • Apply additional content taxonomy classifications and subcategories to streamline the discoverability of knowledge and insights across different content sets and risk event codes.
