Political corruption and the assessment of politically exposed persons
Enter every business relationship with a clearer view of risk

This whitepaper is designed to challenge assumptions about PEPs, clarify due diligence obligations and discuss how these can be addressed in line with a risk-based approach.
Topics covered include:
How international conventions and directives specify the concept of PEPs
Patterns of political corruption involving PEPs
