PEPs: Politically Exposed Persons
DEFINING PEPs
It is critical that your vendor’s coverage be set to
the same definitions by which you will be judged.
OECD, Wolfsberg Principle Group, FATF, etc.
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

THE REAL RISK LIES WITH THE UNNAMED
ASSOCIATES DOING THE DIRTY WORK
o Political figures are too high profile and have too much at
stake to launder illicit funds directly.
o Family 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.
o Entities appearing on sanction lists naturally use frontmen
knowing that these lists are public and enforced.
It’s not Ali Baba that you need to look out for
