The 2008 global financial crisis re-emphasized the importance of compliance and risk management but perhaps a tale of the fall of Britain’s Oldest Bank, Barings, could further buttress the point. Even though, the fall of Lehman Brothers and numerous banking scandals after Barings by far incurred losses of greater magnitude, there remains a story to be told with the fall of Barings Bank hence the apt theme for this year’s event:

“Prevention is better than cure, even on the issue of Corruption”
