Sanctioned Securities Monitoring

Sanctioned Securities Monitoring

Identify sanctioned domiciles, entities and all their issued securities to avoid significant fines.

Effectively identifying securities that are sanctioned under various international regimes helps avoid reputational damage, fines and maximizes opportunities by reducing the need to block trades in non-sanctioned instruments. But even with the official sanctions lists, identifying the securities related to a domicile or company can be a significant challenge.

Compliance departments need to determine in-scope entities and all their issued securities, then uncover global holdings of more than 50% and determine if securities issued by those subsidiaries are actually in-scope.  There is also the challenge of verifying beneficial ownership by sanctioned individuals, which is another crucial element of building your firm’s blocked securities list.
