Litigating banking and investment disputes under the spectre of corruption and bribery
Trillions of dollars are under management by sovereign wealth funds.
The Malaysian 1MDB corruption allegations have hit the headlines and major London litigation involving sovereign funds has included Libyan Investment Authority v Goldman Sachs in 2016, with LIA v SocGen upcoming in 2017. Cases such as KWL v UBS have exposed the corrosive effect of bribery of public officials. Banks around the world are under scrutiny in relation to investment relationships and also money-laundering allegations.
In this seminar chaired by Dr Michael Moser, Members of 20 Essex Street and HKIAC will explore this potent combination of corruption, investment and banking.
