Kharon Global Sanctions Summit
Watch this page for an announcement about the date + location for the Kharon Global Sanctions Summit 2020.
The 2019 Summit
The world's premier sanctions discussion.
April 8, 2019
The intensifying use of sanctions as a tool to address global security issues has resulted in an increasingly complex risk management environment for financial institutions and corporates. For industry, the impact of sanctions lists has evolved beyond basic screening, as regulators encourage more aggressive use of technology and network analysis.
Kharon's inaugural Global Sanctions Summit will convene the world's leading thinkers, practitioners, and policymakers pertaining to sanctions and financial crime. Cross-cutting panels will facilitate important conversations on the role of sanctions in global security, conflict, and human rights, while also accounting for commercial and compliance realities. Panels will include views from top global CEOs, the architects and policymakers behind sanctions policy, and those responsible for building and leading risk management programs.
