Sanctions, Embargos & Asset Freezes (ENG)

14 June


Trying to navigate new sanction types is more complex in cases such as the different sanctions recently imposed on Russia following the incursion in Ukraine. 

Compliance officers play a crucial role as frontline enforcers of the established economic sanctions.

Compliance, legal, audit and risk teams must make sure that they are up to date with the different listed persons and businesses that fall into the different existing regimes and manage the business implications as well as customer relations.

During this conference we will take close look at the operational challenge Sanctions, Embargos and Asset Freezes pose to compliance teams.

  • Re-visiting the Sanctions framework
  • Sanctions: requirements and recommendations set by the EU and Luxembourg
  • What are the operational challenges of implementing the follow-up of sanctions, embargos and asset freeze
  • How nuances can lead to ineffective handling of risks and potential sanctions violations?
