Masterclass: A Rogue Trader’s Tale

Wednesday 8 February 2017

The YHFF masterclasses are a great opportunity to update your knowledge on the latest issues affecting your business, and also to network with your fellow YHFF members, and share knowledge, experiences – and refreshments at the end of the afternoon!

We are delighted to announce that our speaker for the event will be Kweku Adoboli, the former UBS trader, who was convicted in 2011 on two counts of fraud after using the bank’s money for unauthorised trades by entering false information and hiding the trades he was making. His trades cost the bank £1.3 billion and wiped £2.7 billion from its share price. Kweku was sentenced to seven years in prison and banned by the FCA from working in the City for life. He was released in June 2015 and now speaks to the anti-fraud and compliance communities, to try to help lessons to be learnt from his experiences.

Attendance at the masterclass is free of charge to current YHFF members. Members who are unable to attend in person are very welcome to send a colleague in your place.

All places do need to be booked in advance, please – and places are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment!
