Spotlight on the Buyside:
Sanctions Screening in Asia’s Capital Markets

About this Webinar

The increased complexity and data challenges around sanctions on a global scale – and the potential risk of secondary sanctions – have made it more important than ever for institutional investors to have a robust sanctions compliance programme in place.

For the buy-side, screening for sanctioned securities has historically not been a major focus, but the implications of recent sanctions extend far beyond concerns about possible financial penalties for noncompliance, and the stakes have never been higher.

Given the rapidly changing landscape, firms need to adopt a proactive approach to sanctions compliance – one that includes updates to policies and procedures, real-time screening, effective due diligence, ongoing monitoring, and the ability to respond swiftly.

In this webinar, our panel will discuss the operational and data-related challenges associated with effective investment compliance in the current environment, as well as the processes firms should have in place to manage risk and maximise efficiency.
