What to Expect
In this course, you will learn:
- Describe the UK's financial sanctions regime.
- Explain the roles of the FCA, HMT and OFSI.
- Understand the penalties imposed by OFSI.
- Describe the compliance requirements for organisations.
According to the FCA, financial sanctions are imposed by the government and may apply to individuals, entities and governments, who may be resident in the UK or abroad. It is a criminal offence not to comply with a financial sanction unless you have an appropriate licence or authorisation from the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI). The most common types of financial sanctions are asset freezes and restrictions on financial markets and services, such as banking and investments.
