Code of conduct study - United Kingdom

August 8, 2013

There have been multiple reports regarding malpractices in the management of company capital and monetary assets. Private entities are increasingly being placed in the limelight, especially since the enforcement of the United Kingdom Bribery Act.

In recent years the rash of banking scandals involving board-level incompetence and the growing appetite in bankers’ bonuses has caused a significant loss in public confidence. Earlier this year it was uncovered that household bank HSBC had been involved in money laundering to drug cartels and rogue states.

HSBC faced a £1.25 billion fine from regulators following the revelations.
