Samar Pratt Chairs Discussion at Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

Samar Pratt, Managing Director at Exiger will share her expert perspective on anti-financial crime compliance alongside influential practitioners and policy makers in global economic crime prevention at the 37th Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime. The symposium brings together experts from across the world to discuss how to more effectively work together in preventing, managing and combating the threat posed by economically motivated crime and abuse.

Samar will moderate a panel discussion on ‘Do we need a new approach to anti-financial crime compliance?’ on September 5th at 09:00 alongside influencers including UK Finance and Barclays.

As regulatory burdens grow, and compliance deficiencies repeatedly make the headlines, compliance professionals are increasingly looking to new ways to create anti-financial crime compliance programmes that are sustainable and effectively uncover financial crime. In response, they are starting to adopt new approaches, for example involving the use of advanced data analytics and purpose-built technology.

Panel speakers:

  • Chair: Samar Pratt, Managing Director, Exiger, London, UK
  • Dr Justine Walker, Director of Sanctions Policy, UK Finance, London, UK
  • Erik Barnett, Europe Regional Head of Financial Crime Mitigation, HSBC, London, UK
  • Claire Drury-Axford, Legal Counsel, Litigation, Investigations and Enforcement, Barclays Bank PLC, London and former Financial Conduct Authority, UK
  • Karen Shakhnazarov, Head, International Legal Practice, O2 Consulting, Russia
  • Patrick Rappo, Partner, DLA Piper and former Joint Head of the Bribery and Corruption Divisions, Serious Fraud Office of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, UK
  • Thomas Littlechild, Senior Counsel (EMEA), AML, Sanctions and ABC, Wells Fargo, London, UK
