Risk From All Angles: Managing Regulatory Exposure in Maritime Trade

The past year has seen global regulators, such as OFAC, ramp up the scale of their investigations by expanding their focus to the wider maritime trade supply chain, while simultaneously increasing the accountability of the financial sector with sky-high fines for sanctions violations. In 2020 alone, global regulators issued $10.4 billion of fines to financial institutions, the highest annual total yet.

As a result, non-compliance with AML and KYC regulations is no longer an option for those operating within the industry, from ship owners, operators, managers, charterers, brokers, flags, ports, shippers, freight forwarders, commodity traders, insurers, and banks.

In this webinar, we will discuss the risks of noncompliance, as well as the key areas of focus for those looking to mitigate these risks within maritime trade and remain on the right side of regulators. We will also explore the outlook for the next 12 months in terms of both regulatory and industry response.
