How to Mitigate Risk Associated with Russian Oligarchs Through Public Data
Insights 1 minute READ 09/13/2021

Russian oligarchs are known for leveraging complex, cross-border corporate structures to protect and hide their wealth. Given their large global footprint paired with their close relationships to the Russian state, Russian oligarchs can present a myriad of risks to financial institutions including sanctions risk, AML risk, and FCPA risk. 

Join us for our next master class on September 14 at 10:00 am EDT (14:00 UTC), to learn how public data and graph analytics can be leveraged to mitigate risk associated with Russian oligarch networks.

In this class, we will focus on three key areas:

  1. How to identify hidden risk associated with known high-risk companies directly or indirectly associated with Russian oligarchs.
  2. How public data can shed light on the overlap between shell companies used in money laundering or sanctions evasion schemes, and legitimate Russian companies — and why that overlap matters.
  3. How to identify risk associated with facilitator networks — that is, third party entities and individuals involved in registering companies in secrecy jurisdictions and facilitating money laundering and/or sanctions evasion on behalf of Russian oligarchs.
