As noted in section I, there are two general types of financial sanction. Asset-based financial sanctions require states to freeze the funds or other assets of the target, and to ensure that no funds and other assets are made available to them either directly or indirectly. There may also be a prohibition on a designated entity or person accumulating new assets. This might include, for example, blocking grants or loans to a sanctions target. Activity-based financial sanctions focus on the financial aspects of restricted or prohibited trade and commerce, including secondary services such as insurance cover. Iran has been the target of both asset-based and activity-based financial sanctions.
