Complimentary webinar, presented by Silent Eight
Sanctions lists — and the vital act of screening against them– are a core component of effective Financial Crime Compliance. These constantly evolving lists are created by governments and institutions around the world, and dictate both how and with whom institutions should conduct businesses with.
Because of their breadth and scope, these lists require processing vast amounts of data, manually or with the help of screening software (or a combination of the two). As these operations become increasingly global, Financial Institutions are looking beyond mere OFAC and EU compliance. Understanding fast-changing Sanctions regimes have become a critical aspect of Risk Management — especially as the US, EU, and UK are seeing greater divergence, and China has begun to experiment with targeted sanctions against Trump Administration officials and others.
In this webinar we will sit down with 3 industry leaders working directly on the frontlines of FCC today to hear their thoughts on Sanctions in 2021: Tom Magine, Vice President, Capital Markets AML Special Investigations at the Bank of Montreal; Andrew Jensen, VP, Head of Global Sanctions, at Scotiabank; and Garrett Williams, Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer at CNA.
