BIGTXN Launches Innovative Handbook Unveiled to Navigate Sanctioned Securities

A comprehensive guide to navigating the intricate world of sanctioned securities has been introduced by BIGTXN, a UK-based compliance and financial data provider. Titled “Navigating Compliance: Guide to Sanctioned Securities,” the handbook is hailed as the first of its kind in the industry. Authored by Jeff Teahan, a sanctions product specialist at BIGTXN, the handbook is the result of collaboration with notable industry entities including Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, Baker McKenzie, and the Association of Certified Sanctions Specialists (ACSS).

Designed to equip compliance professionals within the financial services sector with indispensable tools, the handbook aims to demystify the complexities surrounding global sanctions. Leveraging the collective expertise of industry leaders, BIGTXN seeks to empower practitioners to proactively manage risks and ensure adherence to compliance standards. Supported by insights from a survey of compliance professionals and industry insights, the handbook promises immediate practical value for practitioners in the field of sanctions and compliance.

Haider Mannan, CEO of BIGTXN, expressed excitement about the release, stating, “We are thrilled to present the ‘Navigating Compliance’ handbook, a trailblazing initiative that addresses a critical knowledge gap in the financial services industry.”

Key features of the handbook include:

  1. Unprecedented Detail: Offering an unparalleled understanding of sanctioned securities, the handbook provides practical insights to ensure compliance.
  2. Expert Collaboration: Crafted in collaboration with renowned industry players, the handbook brings together expertise from Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, Baker McKenzie, and ACSS.
  3. Best Practice Guide: Supported by real-world case studies and data, the handbook offers actionable insights and a best practice guide to navigate the dynamic sanctions landscape.
  4. Tailored Expertise: Designed specifically for compliance professionals in investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers, and related sectors, the handbook addresses the unique challenges faced by financial institutions in ensuring regulatory compliance.

In an environment where financial institutions contend with increasing reporting obligations and a lack of clear guidance, the “Navigating Compliance: Guide to Sanctioned Securities” emerges as a beacon of clarity and a vital resource for professionals striving to stay abreast of the rapidly changing sanctions landscape.

Commenting on the partnership, Michael Heller, Head of Financial Crime Proposition at Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, remarked, “We are delighted to partner with BIGTXN on this handbook to drive further progress in understanding and addressing these challenges in the context of financial instruments.”

Sven Bates, Counsel for International Trade at Baker McKenzie, emphasized the importance of sharing knowledge amidst the expanding scope and complexity of sanctions. He stated, “This handbook provides users with a range of insights into the implementation and application of sanctions in practical contexts to help develop awareness and contribute to industry best practices.”

Anna Sayre, Programs Director at ACSS, expressed support for the initiative, highlighting its potential to drive standards of best practice across the industry.
