Project Financial Crime

This project gives professionals with the passion and enthusiasm to reduce financial crime the opportunity to network with, share expertise and learn from like minded people and invited external guests. We produce thought leader guides on crucial financial crime topics for members and influencers in the sector. A fantastic opportunity to help determine policies to defeat criminals who increasingly use technology to conceal their activities. We aim to ensure the good guys keep one step ahead.
