Sanction checks

Since 2014 there have been several rounds of sanctions imposed by governments in the US, the EU and other countries against a number of Russian and Ukrainian individuals, companies and banks because of their supposed role in the prolonged crisis in Ukraine. These sanctions include, in particular, travel bans and the freezing of overseas assets for certain individuals, in addition to bans on supplies of certain types of equipment and business transactions with Russia’s companies and banks.

However, the sanctioned individuals and businesses often operate via a complex and wide network of affiliates, fiduciaries, trusted persons and offshore entities. This makes it difficult for foreign investors to comply with sanction regimes.

We have developed and implemented a service, which enables us to conduct prompt checks of our clients’ counterparties for any possible affiliations with sanctioned individuals and businesses. Therefore, this service helps to minimise and even prevent potential sanction-related risks.
