Continuing its close association with the Isle of Man branch of the Institute of Directors (IoD), Barclays Wealth & Investment Management’s Head of Anti-Bribery & Corruption (AB&C), Helen Larkin, gave a detailed presentation at a recent IoD seminar entitled ‘Bribery & Corruption. What a Board needs to consider,’ at the Sefton Hotel in Douglas.
In her current role Helen deals with Anti-Bribery and Corruption matters on a daily basis and has worked for Barclays for over 25 years, accumulating a vast wealth of Financial Crime and Risk Management experience.
Helen’s presentation examined the impact of extraterritorial anti-bribery laws and effective ways to address the new anti-corruption environment, exploring AB&C issues including the UK Bribery Act, the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, British Bankers Association ABC Guidance, and the Financial Service Authority’s Financial Crime Guide For Firms as it relates to AB&C. She also touched on the latest relevant Regulatory Enforcement actions.
Simon Scott, Managing Director, Barclays Isle of Man, said: ‘We welcome the opportunity to build ongoing engagement with the IoD Isle of Man branch. As part of the wider Barclays group we are able to draw on global access to expertise and this is a perfect example – giving Isle of Man professionals access to the very best in relevant knowledge and guidance as to its application.’
Sally Bolton, IOD Isle of Man Branch Chair said: ‘This third presentation in the Barclays-supported series of risk-related seminars was another invaluable thought leadership event and I would again like to thank Barclays for their overall commitment to and support of the IoD in the Island.’
