The Middle East - International Financial and Corporate Crime
In March 2017, Mark van Leewarden was invited to present to the Capital Clubs in both Bahrain and Dubai on International Financial and Corporate Crime. The presentations were well received and a number of media articles covered his visit. With the Kingdom of Bahrain especially emerging as an international financial centre there are potential challenges ahead. With expansion, a high-value currency and an increase in private wealth, awareness and a strong regulatory environment are required to prevent fraud and financial crime.
