Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24th, there have been nearly 200 separate sanction measures against the Russian state by Western nations, each designating countless entities connected with high-ranking government officials, oligarchs, and kleptocrats.

  • Maintain an up-to-date blocked entities list
  • Stay abreast of relevant law enforcement actions
  • Build future-proof compliance frameworks
  • Integrate beneficial ownership data sources
  • Accelerate investigations
