Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will discuss the current changes in the marketplace and expose the new faces of AML and examine areas of PEP regulation that pose present and future challenges for regulated businesses.

Why Should You Attend:

This webinar will also explore the operational implications of dealing with this heightened-risk category. In principle, there is nothing wrong with doing business with a politically exposed person, provided that a number of due diligence criteria are met on an ongoing basis. What differentiates PEPs from other categories of financial clients is their position within a country or similar public structure, or their association with a political officeholder.

It is not that PEPs are predisposed to committing financial crimes, but rather that their position, in relation to state funds and other ‘cookie jar’ opportunities, significantly heightens the risk that they may do something corrupt, fraudulent or otherwise illegal. In addition, it is seldom the primary officeholder that brings increased reputational risk; instead, it is with their associates, businesses partners and potentially shadowy middlemen that the real risk lies. As such, it must be noted up-front that an effective PEP risk mitigation solution should not merely provide a long list of officeholders’ names and positions – in order to identify risk critically and methodically, it must also provide the identities of all those “exposed persons” that surround the PEP.

Topic Background:

While anti-money laundering (AML) programs are among an institution’s most scrutinized risk management functions, there is renewed regulatory emphasis on improved client screening, due diligence, monitoring, investigation and regulatory filing practices in an effort to thwart attempts by senior politically exposed persons (PEPs), sanctioned individuals and entities, and high-profile criminals that pose the greatest risk to an organization. This increased scrutiny has resulted in a recent spike in the number of companies getting fined for sanctions breaches, which clearly indicates the need for banks to re-evaluate their existing compliance programs to ensure that they provide maximum protection from increased regulatory scrutiny and serious risk.

Two areas of significant interest are know your customer (KYC) procedures – which involve customer acceptance, identification, and verification policies and the risk profiling of clients – and sanctions filtering, which involves filtering customers and counterparties against government sanctions lists, suspected terrorists, narcotics traffickers, and designated financial institutions and territories.
