The Subject of the Meeting will be: Greed and Corruption in the City of London, does it really exist?
Michael Baume, Chairman of The Financial Services Club Ireland, will chair the Discussion.
The media has a regular debate about greed and corruption in the City of London. With insider trading cases rife; the FSA clamping down; whistleblowers appearing by the minute; and a Bribery Act that is meant to strike the fear of God in all those engaged in such activities; 2012 has seen such practices becoming rarer and harder to practice than ever before. Or has it? Two leading commentators on the financial markets take a microscopic view of greed and corruption in the City and determined if it really does exist and, if so, in what form.
The session will be followed by drinks, canapes and networking.
Nick Kochan is one of the UK's leading authorities on white-collar crime, on corruption, and on market abuse. He has been observing and commenting on abuse of the financial markets and institutions for over 20 years and is the author of many books about white-collar crime. His latest book, Corruption, explores the risks, remedies and responses to corruption and bribery in corporations, and provides unique insight into law enforcement's thinking and practices in dealing with suspected events.
