Episode 7: Proliferation finance: A Sub-Saharan African Bank Stays Ahead
It’s no secret that North Korea and other actors seek to exploit financial systems to pursue their proliferation goals. Sub-Saharan Africa has been one of the most affected regions; its financial institutions stand on the front lines of compliance, particularly when it comes to the recently-intensified UN sanctions measures.
Host Wojciech Pawlus is joined by Mpendu Zwane, the counterproliferation finance manager at Absa, to hear how this South Africa-based banking group stays on top of the threat.
This week’s ‘In the News’ includes CFCS Director Tom Keatinge and RUSI Associate Fellow Gemma Rogers of Fintrail, the financial crime-fighting consultancy.
