Good episode? Give it some love!
John Smith spent 11 years at OFAC, including three years as it's Director, and served under 4 Presidents. He is a global authority on Sanctions, and in this interview with Kieran Beer he sets out the past, present and future of the Sanctions world as we know it.

Discover why OFAC was created, what role Congress plays (and should play!) in setting Sanctions, and how the Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump administrations have differed in their approaches.

If you work in Financial Crime, or simply want to know how Sanctions have changed the world (like the fall of apartheid in South Africa) you need to listen to this podcast.

We're also proud to announce that John will be giving a special presentation at the 15th Annual ACAMS European AML & Anti-Financial Crime Conference in Berlin (11-13 June 2019). Find out more on
