The focus on ‘dirty money’ has persisted for over three decades, and billions of pounds are spent annually trying to tackle it. Yet, there does not appear to be a discernible impact on financial crime, nor the proceeds of crime. This webinar will challenge the global approach, arguing that complacency, self-interest and misunderstandings have resulted in inherent deficiencies which undermine efforts to tackle financial crime. 

Financial crime and proceeds of crime are key areas of focus in FinReg. It will involve an initial talk by an experienced practitioner, followed by an ‘in discussion with’ format. It is anticipated that it will be of interest to law enforcement and legal practitioners, as well as academics.   

Speaker: Tristram Hicks, Independent Consultant (and author of new book on ‘The War on Dirty Money’)

Chair: Professor Colin King, Director, Centre for Financial Law, Regulation and Compliance (FinReg at IALS
