11th Compliance Leadership Forum

The Compliance Leadership Forum fills a unique space in the regulatory compliance world

An exclusive and informative annual event for the risk and regulatory compliance industry, hosted by Thomson Reuters.

Taking the form of an interactive round table discussion, the Compliance Leadership Forum aims to:

  • Address current, but more importantly, future challenges in combating financial and white collar crime in customer and 3rd party relationships
  • Encourage cross border cooperation within industry and between industry, regulators and enforcement agencies
  • Identify common issues and solutions
  • Encourage high standards of ethical behaviour
  • Push for a climate in which financial and related crimes are combated and reduced

The Forum is addressed by a number of expert speakers including people who currently hold, or have held high ranking office in regulatory agencies, in enforcement agencies and in business as well as academics. Topics are diverse and range from the practical to the cerebral and, given the caliber of the speakers and the expertise in the room, a high quality of debate is always ensured.

The number of participants is strictly limited which, along with the discussion-based format, provides for a unique conversation about critical issues.

The venue, Brocket Hall Estate, is a secluded and historical estate that has in the past offered many royal and political visitors a safe place to conduct their business.



The topics for the 2016 forum will include:

  • The geopolitical backdrop and future scenarios for sanctions in Russia, Ukraine and Iran
  • The technical aspects and considerations for implementation of the Iran sanctions and the concept of narrative sanctions using Iran and Russia/Ukraine as further case studies
  • The techniques employed by IS to fund their activities and approaches for all organisations to avoid inadvertently facilitating funding
  • How businesses can work with their third parties to not only manage risk but to drive opportunities (modelled on the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030)
  • Typologies and detection techniques for trade based money laundering
