    Annual Meeting at the INSOL Europe Annual Congress, Athens

    The Co-Chairs of the Anti-Fraud Forum are delighted to be very busy at the Annual Congress this year, with two panel sessions. On Friday morning, Eitan Erez will be chairing a break-out session on how to crack down on fraudulent offshore companies. Later that afternoon, David Ingram will be chairing a plenary session on tracing hidden assets using unusual and innovative methods, defending oneself from covert surveillance, and the legal issues around intelligence gathering.

    In addition, the Forum will be holding its annual meeting on Thursday 4 October at 5pm. Items on the agenda include:

    • A short, topical presentation. The Co-Chairs would like to invite members to propose topics for this slot, to speak for 10 minutes or so before opening the topic to wider conversation.
    • Expanding engagement with the Anti-Fraud Forum. Engagement with INSOL Europe events and other working groups.
    • The impact of Brexit on fraud across Europe. What frauds are we likely to see on the rise? How can the Forum raise awareness of the risks?
    • Any other business.

    If you would like to attend the Anti-Fraud Forum meeting, please contact Caroline Taylor.

    Grant Thornton UK was delighted to host this conference in London on 8 and 9 November. Over 40 delegates from jurisdictions including the UK, Portugal, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, Latvia, Romania and the Czech Republic attended, enjoying the opportunity to network over drinks on 8 November, with the technical session on 9 November.

    The theme of the programme was fraud, with presentations from professionals on such areas as witness recollection and evidence, economic fraud legislation, specific country reports, developments in online investigation techniques and funding litigation in insolvent estates. Lively interactive discussions took place around a number of these topics, indicating that this conference was the first of many opportunities for the Anti-Fraud Forum and the Young Members Group to work together to promote their goals and those of INSOL Europe.
