Reflections on the Swiss Investigation Forum 2019

This year’s Swiss Investigation Forum took place on 17 October 2019 at the Park Hyatt in Zurich. Over 150 interested attendees, from across industry, joined the event. As in the previous year, the forum was moderated by the former Financial Times and The Economist correspondent Haig Simonian. The keynotes and panel discussions were referring to this year’s topic:

What motivates executives to commit white-collar crime and the key role of investigations in driving and shaping corporate and compliance culture

Our guest speaker Andrew Clapham (UN) gave an overview of investigations at the United Nations, particularly in South Sudan. Emma Molvidson (UBS), Neil Barofsky (Jenner & Block), Erin Schrantz (Jenner & Block) and Matthew Cipolla (Jenner & Block) discussed how investigations or monitorships can impact cultural change within organisations. Eugene Soltes (Harvard Business School) enabled us to get into the head of a white-collar criminal and find out what motivates executives, who seem to have it all, to commit crime. The keynotes were concluded with a panel featuring all speakers, which also gave the audience room for questions.
