The volume of fraud and financial crime is on the increase, with more and more sophisticated methods being employed.
Whether an individual or company is a victim of fraud – or is accused of a financial crime – the repercussions can be extremely negative. As well as the financial implications, the impact on management time and the potential for reputational damage can be significant.
