The PEP Quiz

Can you identify a politically exposed person?

With no official global definition of a Politically Exposed Person (PEP), making a risk based decision on an individual’s PEP status can be a difficult process. This short, interactive PEP quiz features fictitious profiles to test your knowledge of what may or may not constitute a PEP or Foreign Public Official in accordance with FATF Guidance and financial crime compliance regulations such as the fourth EU AML Directive. Choose your level of difficulty below.

For further information on PEPs before you begin the quiz, view our PEP frequently asked questions.
