New Additions to Express Analysis
The latest updates focus on key risk areas:
Risks of Engaging with Russian Partners
Engaging with these counterparts can attract law enforcement scrutiny, trigger investigations, and harm reputations due to public disapproval. Ukraine, the EU, and the US may impose sanctions on businesses and their key figures for cooperating with Russia. Such partnerships might also be viewed as supporting military aggression against Ukraine.
The enhancements to Express Analysis bolster its effectiveness. It's particularly useful for regular Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) activities, aiding compliance and risk managers in their duties. In today's climate, it's crucial for businesses of all sizes, including start-ups and individual entrepreneurs, to avoid associations with entities linked to a "Russian trace."
