Financial Crime Investigations Masterclass

Financial crime such as fraud, money laundering and tax evasion, is now recognised as a significant social, commercial and economic issue. The investigation of financial crime, including asset tracing and asset recovery, can have a significant impact upon criminality, from tackling local criminals up to international organised groups engaged in criminality at the highest level. Restitution, removing the profits from those involved in crime and returning it to victims and public services, is now seen as an integral part of a crime reduction strategy that previously concentrated on punishment of offenders. In addition, Financial Investigation can provide crucial evidence in cases beyond financial crime and has become a key and mandatory feature in the ‘murder manual’ of many jurisdictions.
