Kharon Global Sanctions Summit: Risk management at the intersection of global security and commerce
April 8, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
John Prendergast, Co-Founder of the The Sentry and Founding Director of the Enough Project, will speak at the Global Sanctions Summit during the program “Wielding sanctions in the pursuit of democracy, anti-corruption & human rights.”
Kharon’s inaugural Global Sanctions Summit will convene the world’s leading thinkers, practitioners, and policymakers pertaining to sanctions and financial crime. Cross-cutting panels will facilitate important conversations on the role of sanctions in global security, conflict, and human rights, while also accounting for commercial and compliance realities. Panels will include views from top global CEOs, the architects and policymakers behind sanctions policy, and those responsible for building and leading risk management programs.
The intensifying use of sanctions as a tool to address global security issues has resulted in an increasingly complex risk management environment for financial institutions and corporates. For industry, the impact of sanctions lists has evolved beyond basic screening, as regulators encourage more aggressive use of technology and network analysis.
