Industry Specific Events

ABC Minds Financial Services

Corruption risks in the financial services usually fall under three categories: customer-related risk, improper actions by staff, and exposure to PEPs. ABC Minds Financial Services will bring together the top anti-corruption experts from across banking, insurance and securities firms to discuss the latest legal requirements and their most pressing concerns and learn to create process-driven responses to combat corruption risks.

This one-day event will explore the issues facing financial institutions including policy, reporting, investigation standards, auditing processes, and corruption prevention/monitoring systems. Hear from key global prosecutors about their priorities for the coming years and ask them your key questions to help bring an end to corruption in the financial industry.

Due to launch in London, 15th March 2018.

ABC Minds Extractives

Corruption in the extractives industry is a major impediment to development. It prevents domestic growth for resource-rich nations, reduces profits of extractive initiatives, and leads to misguided projects with little hope of fruition. ABC Minds Extractives will cover the entire extractives value chains, from awarding and regulation to revenue collection, to bring an end to corrupt practices across the industry.

Join the stand against corruption in the extractives value chain at this unmissable one day event, covering proper training and monitoring techniques for working with governments in volatile territories, working with prosecutors to understand the breadth of corporate responsibility, and network with fellow ABC professionals to create a culture of collective action against rampant corruption.

Due to launch 2018.


ABC Minds Life Sciences

Executives in the life sciences industry are the most likely to believe corrupt practices are a part of doing business. This has led to a staggering increase in the volume of legislation and regulations across the world, including the record-breaking fine awarded to GSK in China and the stringent tightening of payment disclosure by EFPIA members. ABC Minds Life Sciences will focus on building a knowledge base for compliance & ABC professionals to tackle the core issues within the industry

This knowledge packed event will cover the hottest issues in ABC including ensuring third parties, especially PEPs, are vetted and monitored at every stage, implementing effective anti-corruption procedures in the M&A process, and engaging with the board to create a company-wide anti-corruption culture.

Due to launch 2018.
