UK HMT/OFSI Investment Bans

Separate from the main sanctions list, this list of persons names entities in relation to financial and investment restrictions

Sectoral financial and investment restrictions are in place in the Russia sanctions regime which restrict specified activities. These include restrictions on dealing with transferable securities or money-market instruments and granting or entering into arrangements to grant loans or credit.

The UK sanctions list suffers from very bad data quality as the result of manual data processing and inappropriate data structures used by the XML files.
