OFAC launches its review of economic & financial sanctions

On the 1st of April 2021, Deputy Secretary of the US Treasury, Wally Adeyemo, kicked off a top to bottom review of U.S. economic and financial sanctions with a meeting of thought leaders representing leading Think Tanks and Universities. He noted that sanctions remain a potent and valuable tool for policymakers and as programs are evaluated, it is critical to keep an eye toward ensuring they remain a strong, viable option in years to come. There was an agreement that sanctions remain a  key instrument of U.S. national security and foreign policy, and the importance of a well-considered approach to their imposition.

The summit is a call to action for African political leaders, policymakers, regulatory authorities, leading bilateral/multilateral development finance institutions; private equity and impact investments funds; banks and other financial institutions to come together reflect on these issues, and  share their insights on the prospects of ESG and financial crime compliance in supporting growth and development of the African continent.

Our annual summit creates the opportunity  for African institutions, regulatory bodies and governments to reposition firmly as vanguards of the policy environment and, in so doing, purposefully change the narratives around investment risk in Africa.

This is an opportunity for our attendees to access African expertise and gain clarity on investment risks and mitigations of the African markets.
