Our goal is to create an open source database of persons of interest from sanctions, criminal and political contexts. Like a contrast dye in medical imaging, sanctions data can be an essential tool that helps financial service providers and journalists identify suspect entries in datasets.

Our goal is to create a sustainable resource, with both the data and the pipeline used for its generation available freely to fintechs, regtechs, investigators and analysts. Acquiring such data is a basic task for these groups, and it makes sense to pool the effort into an open dataset, rather than funding duplicate development in-house.
