Leading global authorities on financial crime and compliance are in Guernsey next month for the 2016 Guernsey Compliance and & Economic Crime Symposium hosted by the Jersey International Business School.

We are delighted to be a sponsor at the one day event which includes among the impressive speaker line up key figures from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Serious Fraud Office, National Crime Agency and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC). They will present the latest thinking on the most pertinent regulatory issues such as the countering of the financing of terrorism, sanctions, bribery and corruption.

Keynote speakers are William E Dayhoff, Assistant Section Chief from the FBI, who will discuss countering the financing of terrorism; Simon York, Director of Fraud Investigation Service at HMRC, who will present the UK’s response to the Panama Papers and Daniel L Tannebaum, principal and global financial services sanction leader at PwC, LLP, New York who will focus on sanctions. The Guernsey perspective will be led by Deputy Gavin St Pier, President of the Policy & Resources Committee and Chief Minister, States of Guernsey and Simon Gaudion, Head of Enforcement at the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.
