The 2022 Sanctions Tsunami: Abs Ghosh to Speak at ACAMS UK Chapter Event

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and subsequently the on-going war, the amount of sanctions against individuals, entities and sectors have swept the world like a tsunami.

In this panel discussion hosted by ACAMS UK Chapter and sponsored by Exiger, we dive into some of the complexities of the current sanctions landscape:

  • The UK response to the Ukraine crisis – focus areas, any exclusions?, challenges
  • Differences across the world – key differences, industry implementation challenges
  • Practitioners’ risks – challenges of hidden sanctions nexus in client structures and investments
  • The use of technology to uncover hidden sanctions nexus

The panel will also discuss the impact of recently issued:

  • OFSI enforcement and monetary penalties for breaches of financial sanctions Guidance 
  • Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Bill
