Sanctions Compliance



45 – 60 minutes


Sanctions Compliance

Consider the following case. A client of the bank requests a USD pre-export financing facility to deliver certain ‘dual use’ goods to a SPV that is registered in a NATO country and that is a subsidiary of a large conglomerate. What are the Sanctions compliance implications of this transaction for the bank and how will you advise the client?

The answers to these questions are important because Regulators around the world take an uncompromising view to holding (financial) institutions accountable for compliance with Sanctions regimes. These regimes, be they from the US, EU or elsewhere, are complex and subject to frequent changes, so how do you assure yourself that you are on safe ground?
