Webinar description

Dr Rakele Cini will be delivering a session to delve into the definition of “Politically Exposed Persons” (PEPs) in terms of Maltese Regulations, recent changes brought about by the 5th EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive, and the methods of how to identify such individuals. In principle, there are no specific prohibitions from servicing PEPs, both as customers and where the beneficial owner of customers is a PEP. However, subject persons must implement measures and controls to deal with this heightened-risk category.  A number of specific customer due diligence criteria need to be met on an ongoing basis.
