If you would like to speak with a CSI representative about PEP prior to the live webinar, please Contact Us and include the comment “PEP”. 

We often hear news stories about government officials who have been linked to some type of financial crime such as embezzlement, bribe-taking or corruption. No financial institution wants to assist in the movement of those ill-gotten gains. Since a politically exposed person (PEP) often has more opportunities than ordinary citizens to acquire assets through unlawful means, they are considered higher-risk customers for financial institutions. This webinar will explore how current regulations define a PEP, recommendations for conducting enhanced due diligence (EDD) specifically tailored to your client’s PEP status, and available tools to help mitigate your organization’s risk.

Learning Objectives

  • Defining PEPs according to definitions within current federal regulations
  • Understanding the importance of screening for PEPs and other higher-risk customers
  • Implementing EDD requirements around PEPs and other higher-risk customers
