Managing Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) – A Practical Risk-based Approach

ACAMS Today Article Cover

“A Practical Approach to PEP Risk Management,” featured in ACAMS Today magazine, discusses a holistic way to manage PEP risk so that your organization can remain both efficient and effective. Some topics include:

  • Challenges of PEP risk management, including different definitions of PEP by jurisdiction and various categories of PEPs
  • Developing a practical, 3 dimensional risk-based approach – including analyzing your internal data and filtering the PEP database to identify only relevant PEPs by jurisdiction, categories and expiry date

This approach has changed how many organizations think about their PEP risk, and we hope that it will benefit your organization too.
