* Politically exposed persons (PEP)

The Act (2017:630) on Measures against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (“the PTL”) contains certain provisions for the establishment of business relations with politically exposed persons (PEP), including requirements for stricter measures to achieve knowledge about customers. The PTL defines a PEP as “a) physical person who has or has had an important public function in a state; and b) a physical person who has or has had a role in the management of an international organization.” Furthermore, the kind of provisions mentioned above shall also apply to a PEP’s family members and close associates. The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority has issued supplementary regulations in this area (FFFS 2017:11). 

The notion of important public function refers to functions held by:

  • heads of state or government, ministers and deputy and assistant ministers;
  • members of parliament;
  • members of the boards of political parties;
  • judges of the Supreme Court, constitutional courts or other high-level legal bodies whose judgments can only be appealed against in exceptional cases;
  • senior officials at audit authorities and members of central banks’ governing bodies;
  • ambassadors, heads of mission and high-ranking officers in the Armed Forces;
  • people included in the administration, management or supervision of state-owned companies; and
  • people in the management of international organisations.

Family members mean:

  • spouses;
  • registered partners;
  • cohabitants;
  • children;
  • children’s spouses, registered partners or cohabitants; and
  • parents.

Close associate means:

  1. a physical person who, according to what is known or can reasonably be assumed, is jointly with a PEP a beneficial owner of legal entities or legal arrangements or who otherwise has or has had close links with a PEP; and
  2. a physical person who is the sole beneficial owner of a legal entity or legal arrangement which, according to what is known or can reasonably be assumed, has actually been established in favour of a PEP.

The notion of close links in clause 1 refers to close business relationships and other relationships that may cause the close associate to be linked to an increased risk of money laundering or terrorist financing.
