About the event

Join us for a fascinating Lunch & Learn session on corruption, money-laundering and the black economy in Sweden.

Money-laundering is one part of an increasingly sophisticated industry that is a financial crime. Frequently part of multi criminality incorporating bribery and corruption, fraud, illegal trading and trafficking, and more, only 1 percent of money laundering is ever detected according to research. What are the banks doing, and how does financial crime impact businesses at large? And, the question which is perhaps most disturbing – Where does the black money come from? Illegal, undeclared, ignored, or just too smartly structured?

In a piece depicting Swedish and Danish banks as the conduit for Russian oligarchs, the Financial Times coined it Nordic Noir. When the Danske Bank and Swedbank money-laundering scandals surfaced in 2019, bankers and politicians alike were awestruck. The solid image of trust and transparency was shaken to its core. Naivety and a low held guard made Nordic banks an easy prey for a business that operates below the radar, worth anything between 3-5% of global GDP.

Our guest speaker is Louise Brown, an anti-corruption expert and Director at Advisense, a leading financial crime advisory firm. She has a background as Integrity Compliance Expert with the World Bank, as Chair of Transparency International Sweden, and a regular commentator on corruption and business ethics in media including SVT Uppdrag Granskning, SR P1 Studio Ett, Dagens Industri, Financial Times and Bloomberg.
