What is Sanctions Risk?

Managing Sanctions Risk is a dynamic, complex topic. Types of sanctions include National or International sanctions. These may be issued against individuals, entities, groups or nations or even trading activities/particular sectors. Those bodies charged with enforcing sanctions compliance operate cross border and are particularly active at the moment, with multiple fines for firms in recent years stretching into billions of dollars. Understanding the intricacies and challenges of meeting sanctions obligations and implementing a framework to manage sanctions risks is vital for regulatory and financial crime compliance professionals.

Sanctions remain a complex yet fascinating topic and crucial for developing a well-rounded strategy in combating financial crime. We have a wide breadth of courses and qualifications that are designed to suit learners of all levels.
