According to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Anti-Corruption regulations, financial institutions must take reasonable measures to determine whether an individual is a Politically Exposed Person (PEP). By placing PEPs into a higher risk model for Enhanced Due Diligence, organizations can protect themselves from being used by money launderers and other harmful activities. But not all PEPs present the same level of risk, it will vary depending on the country of jurisdiction, industry or sector etc.
Learning Objectives 学习目标
How regulations are changing
Factors contributing to PEP risk – which PEPs may be riskier than others
Best practices for optimizing screening and monitoring
The right combination of management structure with leading edge technology can streamline your global watch list management, reducing noise in your screening process.
Managing any global data process can be challenging – managing the variety of lists employed in your screening process is no exception. Whether you’re a large multi-national with lists spanning numerous countries or a financial institution (FI) trying to organize a set of lists in one region—the complexities of watch list management can add significant costs and inefficiency that overwhelm your staff and systems.
Many financial institutions struggle with ad hoc management of a decentralized process. For example, local branches have relationships with local vendors and often create local lists, leading to substantial variability and duplication across the enterprise. This duplication creates regulatory risk as there is no clear view of what is being screened across the organization to show to auditors. Beyond the regulatory risk, the data inconsistencies can be a root cause of false positives due to imprecise matching.
Join the experts at Pitney Bowes to learn about best practices and innovative approaches to watch list management that will help standardize program management and improve overall data quality to drive better outcomes of your Sanctions Screening and Watch List Filtering processes.
•Alleviating various pitfalls and challenges FIs face in watch list management
•Reviewing best practice approaches and technologies to improve watch list management

Due to characteristics including high value, portable, virtually untraceable and odourless commodities, precious metals and stones are often exposed to elevated levels of money laundering risks. Money launderers and terrorist financers are drawn to precious metals and stones—especially diamonds since they are often highly valuable relative to their weight and also have a relatively stable price. During this informative webinar, our experts will explore initiatives undertaken by an organisation involved with one of the largest diamond dealer communities in Europe to raise awareness and bolster measures that can be taken to prevent the misuse of these products.
•Raising awareness about how precious metals and stones are used to launder proceeds of crime
•Analysing current typologies involving the use of precious metals and stones to move proceeds of crime and conceal its detection
