Why you need Financial Sanctions Training

A financial sanction is imposed on individuals or legal entities (such as companies) to restrict their access to financial services, funds, or other economic resources. The HM Treasury refers to these restricted parties as 'targets'. Sanctions are usually put in place for purposes relating to national security or foreign policy, and are meant to protect assets, prevent hostile behaviour, or else constrain individuals/entities from doing harm. Raising awareness on what financial sanctions are and what they mean for regulated firms is vital in ensuring compliance and mitigating the risks.

What are financial sanctions?
Financial sanctions help achieve the UK government's foreign policy and national security objectives including the prevention of terrorist financing. Sanctions are also aimed at maintaining confidence in the integrity of the UK's financial service sector. All businesses are required to understand and implement the various responsibilities involved with financial sanctions effectively.
What is sanctions screening?
It is a criminal offence for regulated firms to provide funds or carry out transactions for designated persons on the consolidated financial sanctions list. To ensure that business activities are safe and legal, firms must implement sanctions screenings when taking on new customers. Sanctions screening helps businesses to identify sanctioned individuals and organisations and make to right decisions to ensure compliance and mitigate the risks.
What are the types of sanctions?
When a business identifies an individual or entity on the consolidated list, they are required by law to freeze the funds or economic resources that it controls and report to HMT's Asset Freezing Unit. All sanctions breaches must also be reported to the OFSI. Apart from asset freezes, the business may impose restrictions on financial markets and services, which apply to named individuals, entities and bodies, or to entire sectors.
