As sanctions become increasingly complex, checking watch lists is no longer enough to protect your business.
On the surface, sanctions are simple. Blacklisted companies, individuals and countries are off-limits to business.
The reality is far more complex. Potential partners might not be listed as sanctioned, but be prohibited by virtue of their cumulative control or hidden beneficial ownership. Sanctions policy shifts rapidly as political winds change. The applicability of certain sanctions to your organisation may differ based on where you do business and your risk appetite. Meeting these challenges requires nuance, judgement and deep local knowledge.
