Simplify sanctions compliance with SWIFT's expanding shared services portfolio

This session will cover SWIFT's solutions for sanctions compliance. Sanctions Screening provides cost-effective, real-time message screening against international sanctions lists without the need to manage your own screening infrastructure or sanctions lists. It can screen transactions in any structured format, even if the messages are sent over non-SWIFT networks.

Sanctions Testing can help you optimise the effectiveness and efficiency of your existing transaction, customer and PEP filters. Our Peer Assessment service lets you evaluate the performance of your filters against a baseline of key aggregated data from other participating Sanctions Testing users.

You'll also hear about new sanctions compliance solutions that are coming soon.

Empower your compliance teams with insights from SWIFT's Compliance Analytics
