Spend-related regulatory violations come in the form of different types of payments or gifts, including those to sanctioned organizations or people; debarred organizations or people; organizations or people on an export control list; foreign officials or government-owned entities; politically-exposed people; and healthcare professionals or organizations. How do you know if you have these violations hiding in your organization's expenses, contracts, or invoices? It’s not easy to weed them out, and if you don’t have an automated, systematic approach, doing so is prohibitively time consuming.

Citadel-founder Ken Griffin lit up the luxury residential sector in January 2019 when he bought a super penthouse in New York City for US$240 million. This purchase followed another acquisition he made in London in which he forked out US$122 million for a 200-year old house overlooking London’s St James Park. These ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) buyers, local or foreign, are chief executive officers (CEOs) of tech companies or investment funds, and chairmen of major multi-national corporations (MNCs). They are also collectors of trophy assets who go for nothing less than the best-in-class attributes such as location, size, views, privacy, luxurious furnishings, and architectural merit.

As such, many developers of ultra-luxury properties have conceived collectible concepts right from the planning

Canadian consumers have made shopping online an established behavior—80% did it last year—and many online retailers are interested in selling to them. That’s because they see opportunity. The product selection and retailer options Canadians ?nd online with merchants based in Canada trail their expectations, and that leads many to look at international shopping options. 67% of Canadian online shoppers purchased from a foreign e-retailer last year, according to PayPal Inc., making Canada the seventh-highest nation for cross-border online shopping among 29 surveyed.

In global, multicultural organizations, simply expecting all employees to speak one common language, such as English, marginalizes the potential impact of international talent and leaves monolingual staff ill-equipped to help the organization compete effectively in a globalized environment. In an increasingly global economy, U.S. companies will perform better by hiring individuals who can communicate in foreign languages and helping current employees develop language skills. Forbes Insights, in conjunction with Rosetta Stone, surveyed more than 100 executives at large U.S. businesses (annual revenues of more than $500 million) and found that language barriers have a broad and pervasive impact on business operations. The survey found that foreign language skills will be even more vital in the future and that language abilities can help executives advance their careers, speed overseas expansion, and boost corporate—as well as personal—success.

When compliance managers think about the good old days, they do not have to look back too far. In fact, prior to 2008, the world was a much simpler place: the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) published a list of sanctioned companies and individuals, and as long as their company was not doing business with any person on that list, they seemed to be in good shape. This was definitely not an easy task. However, after 2008, it became more complicated when OFAC guidance stated that an ownership interest of 50% or more by a sanctioned subject was blocked or otherwise limited.
