UAE Uncovered: The New Ground Zero for Financial Crime

Wren

Behind the United Arab Emirates' gaudy exterior is a not-so-pretty side.

This session will look at evidence that the UAE, particularly Dubai, has become a popular jurisdiction with investment fraudsters, oligarchs, sanctioned politicians, and money launderers, whom the country appears to welcome with open arms.

Speakers include investigative journalists who will present evidence of crooks purchasing property (and explaining how to investigate UAE property ownership), a British licensed insolvency practitioner who was prevented from leaving the UAE for three months after a British criminal defendant whose assets he was investigating filed a complaint against him, and a Deutsche Bank whistleblower who was targeted by the Dubai authorities after she blew the whistle on a massive money laundering scheme.

Normalizing Fraud: The Crazy World of Crypto

Wren

This session will look at the unprecedented amount of fraud taking place in the crypto industry in which millions of victims all over the world have been - and continue to be - collectively scammed out of hundreds of billions of dollars in schemes that, in many cases, are hawked by celebrities, influencers, and even 'respected' businesspeople. It will also analyze whether, apart from being a tool to commit fraud, the underlying technology behind crypto has any legitimate uses or any future.

Too Big to Jail: HSBC's Involvement in Financial Crime

Wren: Dickens Suite

Across the world, HSBC likes to sell itself as 'the world’s local bank', the friendly face of corporate and personal finance. However, the same bank was hit with a record U.S. fine of $1.9 billion for facilitating money laundering for 'drug kingpins and rogue nations'.

This session will analyze how a bank that boasts 'we're committed to helping protect the world's financial system on which millions of people depend by only doing business with customers who meet our high standards of transparency' came to provide services to now-imprisoned Mexian drugs lord El Chapo and his barbaric group of gangsters and ask why none of its representatives were criminally prosecuted..

The story starts in Hong Kong and ranges across London, Washington, the Cayman Islands and Mexico, where HSBC saw the opportunity to become the largest bank in the world, and El Chapo seized the chance to fuel his murderous empire by laundering his drug proceeds through the bank. It brings together an extraordinary cast of politicians, bankers, drug dealers, FBI officers, and whistle-blowers.

The Incredible Story of Arif Naqvi & The Abraaj Group

Wren: Nelson Suite

Arif Naqvi was charismatic, inspiring, and self-made - all the qualities of a successful business leader. The founder of Abraaj, a Dubai-based private-equity firm, Naqvi was the Key Man to the global elite searching for impact investments to make money and do good. He persuaded politicians he could help stabilize the Middle East after 9/11 by providing jobs and guided executives to opportunities in cities they struggled to find on the map. Bill Gates helped him start a $1 billion fund to improve healthcare in poor countries and the UN and Interpol appointed him to boards. As Pope Francis blessed a move to harness capitalism for the good of the poor, Naqvi won the support of Obama’s administration and investors, who compared him to Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible.

In 2018, Simon Clark and Will Louch were contacted by an anonymous whistleblower who said Naqvi had swindled investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars and offered bribes to sustain his billionaire lifestyle. Digging into the claims, Clark and Louch uncovered hundreds of documents and exposed the wrongdoing. In April 2019—months after their exposé broke—Naqvi was arrested on charges of fraud and racketeering, and faces up to 291 years in jail.

In this session, Clark will discuss how the global elite was duped by a capitalist fairytale and shine a light on efforts to clean up global capital flows even as opaque private equity firms amass trillions of dollars and offshore tax havens cast a veil of secrecy which prevents regulators, investors and citizens from understanding what’s really going on in the finance industry.

'ENRC v. Gerrard': Will International Investigations Ever Be The Same?

Wren

This panel discussion will be organised along the lines of the 'BBC Question Time' format with the panellists making some initial comments about the implications of the 'ENRC v. Gerrard' judgment and then answering questions from attendees.

Among the topics to be addressed are:


  • Is there a conflict of interest in a public authority acting as both investigator and prosecutor?

  • What duty of care should an investigator have in respect of a. information and documentation they receive in the course of their investigation b.the preparation and preservation of internal meetings/discussions/memos?

  • Should it make any difference whether the investigator is a private or public body?

  • Is "fee churning" a problem in the legal and investigative professions?

  • What role should a Compliance Group/Officer play in a) Internal investigations conducted by an organisation and b) Investigations conducted by lawyers on behalf of an organisation? c.investigations conducted by a public body?

  • What role should a director/partner/employee who is the central figure in alleged wrongdoing play in a) Any internal investigation into that wrongdoing? and b) Any legal proceedings relating to that alleged wrongdoing?
