Family Office Fraud

Mithun will kindly start the discussion with a background to industry financial fraud risk management strategies undertaken by multi-family offices, EAMs and private banks, and will highlight the practical approach taken by Taurus Wealth when introducing direct investments to clients.
Stephen will then be invited to discuss best practice financial due diligence when considering direct equity and indirect fund investments and will share some red flag indicators of possible financial fraud, particularly when considering the financial records and accounts of a target company or fund.
David and I will end the session with a discussion of the legal fallout when financial fraud is discovered, we will consider typical insolvency remedies, the position of directors of insolvent companies and funds, and possible causes of action against auditors, private banks and regulatory bodies, we shall also consider the difficult position of investors that may be subject to clawback claims for funds previously received from an investment fund that is later found to be a Ponzi Scheme.
