OECD, Wolfsberg Principle Group, FATF, etc. PEPs: Politically Exposed Persons SENIOR POLITICAL FIGURES ranging from the mayor of a significant city, up to diplomats, members of parliament and heads of state THOSE EXPOSED TO THEM family members, businesses, bankers, frontmen DEFINING PEPs It is critical that your vendor’s coverage be set to the same definitions by which you will be judged.
THE REAL RISK LIES WITH THE UNNAMED ASSOCIATES DOING THE DIRTY WORK It’s not Ali Baba that you need to look out for IT’S HIS 40 THIEVES ! oPolitical figures are too high profile and have too much at stake to launder illicit funds directly. oFamily members are less-than-ideal fronts as the high-risk entity does not want to see his wife or children go to jail anymore than he does. oEntities appearing on sanction lists naturally use frontmen knowing that these lists are public and enforced.
