Equals Group provides this opportunity to report on the measures we have taken in response to the developing situation in Ukraine. The Group has a dedicated team in place across Operations, Engineering, Risk and Compliance who are continuously monitoring the situation, addressing our obligations and directing our response.
The Group had minimal exposure to Russia, Belarus and nationals of both nations prior to the recent events in Ukraine. In the last few weeks we have closed or suspended any accounts directly or indirectly impacted by sanctions and other restrictions imposed by the UK, EU and US. We no longer hold any forward positions with RUB or Russian entities or nationals. We are also prohibiting the use of cards in Russia and Belarus and have communicated this to customers with prior spend in these countries.
In accordance with our risk and sanctions framework, Group entities are conducting enhanced due diligence against any and all transactions to or from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.
As a business, the Group is committed to supporting those impacted by the conflict and has participated in collections at our Chester office to send supplies to refugees in Poland. We will continue to monitor this situation and will continue to explore the ways we can support refugees while maintaining compliance with the developing sanctions.
