Welcome to our first global sanctions guide.
Over the past few years, as international sanctions have become one of the critical areas of risk for international businesses, there has also been a corresponding increase in their complexity.
Having worked in the global sanctions compliance team for one of the largest banks in the world, I often wanted to have a compendium of practical information on sanctions applicable to our international locations. Such a guide did not exist. This guide has been developed to bridge that gap.
Our aim in formulating the guide has been to provide anyone working in the sanctions space with the critical information they need to deal with day to day sanctions issues, from which regimes are covered, to who the regulator(s) is/are.
As sanctions constantly evolve, it is not practical to set out each regime’s specific laws/regulations on sanctions. For that, we are available to advise on any specific issue you or your firm may have.
In the meantime, we do hope you find the guide of benefit to you or your team(s) and welcome any feedback you may have on its future development.
