During Q 2 and Q 3 of 2017 there has been an increment in Sanctions OFAC has imposed with respect to the situation in Venezuela. In addition, at the end of Q 3, 2017 FinCEN sent out an advisory on widespread public corruption in Venezuela alerting the financial service industries on money laundering schemes used by corrupt Venezuelan officials. The US Government has also added Venezuelan travel restrictions which apply to certain Venezuelan government officials and their family.


How do the above impact the financial service industries?

How do these measures impact day to day business with Venezuelan nationals?

How will this affect AML/ OFAC monitoring of transactions or the Risk rating of Venezuelan portfolios?
