London’s financial services sector, the Bribery Act & anti-corruption laws

Print Friendly

Are the storm clouds gathering over the City of London?

Over the coming weeks we shall be taking a look at the Financial Services sector in London, one of the UK’s most important sectors of the economy and looking at how it is affected by the Bribery Act and other criminal laws.

We’ll also take a look at specific risks industries within the Financial Services sector in the UK face and suggestions of ways to limit risk from anti-corruption enforcement.

The UK’s Serious Fraud Office is based in the City. The SFO raids last week on the Tchenguiz Brothers and their associates underscore the fact that the financial services industry is firmly in the sights of the SFO.

Starting tomorrow we begin with Private Equity.
