Financial Crime newsletter – Spring 2020

News 15 Apr 20

Welcome to the Spring edition of the 2 Bedford Row financial crime newsletter.  Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has most of us working from home, the crisis has thrown up a whole range of new issues in financial and regulatory crime, and of course the lock-down does not mean that those issues that were of concern before the pandemic struck have gone away.  In this edition, we are therefore looking at four topics which we hope will be of interest to everyone working in the area of financial crime:

  •  Richard Whittam QC considers the SFO’s use, or lack of use so far, of SOCPA powers to use evidence from “Assisting Offenders”;
  • Alastair Smith looks at national and international trends in regulating crypto-currency;
  • Thomas Daniel examines the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on financial crime and compliance; and
  • Rhys Rosser explores the lessons to be learned from the Standard Chartered decision in relation to ensuring compliance with sanctions.

We trust you will find plenty to interest and inform you in this edition of the newsletter, and if nothing else, we hope that it gives you something to read during the lock-down!
