[Webinar] Staying Ahead of AML/OFAC-Watch List Screening Regulations. Challenges in an Uncertain Time

October 1, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

This event has now finished but if you are interested in the topic and would like to speak to a member of the team then please contact us.

Increased changes in state, federal and global enforcement to an already-complex regulatory landscape emphasize the need for the Insurance sector to perform diligent risk assessments of their current OFAC & Watchlist compliance programs.

This webinar will cover lessons learned from 2019 OFAC enforcement cases and provide key insights and actionable solutions to ensure that your insurance company meets compliance requirements and avoids costly sanctions.

Join our webinar to learn more about compliance best practices for dealing with:

  • Adding New Lines Of Business (M&A)
  • Centralization versus Decentralization of the OFAC Screening Process
  • Exposure and Regulations to Consider when Selling into A New Geography
  • Sanctioned Countries (Iran, Russia, Venezuela, and North Korea, Cuba)
  • Complying with the 50% rule (Beneficiary Ownership)
  • Evaluating your current screening process and identifying pitfalls and compliance gaps
