Recorded Webinar: Adding value and improving efficiencies in sanctions screening

18 May 2022

Sanctions have been headline news this year. They are growing in number, sanctions lists are changing on a daily basis, and there can be conflict between sanctions issued by different jurisdictions – the whole calling for financial institutions to optimise sanctions screening to reduce risk and avoid potentially punitive penalties of non-compliance.

This webinar will identify approaches to sanctions screening in a complex and fast-moving environment. It will also consider best practice technology implementation and required resources, and discuss how successful sanctions screening can improve efficiency and add value.

Register for the webinar to find out about:

  • The extent of sanctions in financial markets
  • Approaches to effective sanctions screening
  • Useful technologies, tools and techniques
  • How to reduce false positives and improve efficiency
  • Gains of getting screening right, penalties of getting it wrong
