Russian Sanctions: Impact, Implications, and Best Practices

Sanctions compliance is paramount, especially now more than ever. Financial institutions must be diligent and understand all sanctions programs, particularly the new programs related to Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus. The risk to financial institutions for processing a transaction to or from a sanctioned entity or individual or from not blocking an account owned by a sanctioned entity or individual is significant for not only the monetary penalty but the reputational risk as well.
