We invite you to review past symposia programmes, which attest to the calibre, relevance, practicality and reach of our past deliberations. However, perhaps more importantly, if you consider the topics at the time they were raised, you will see how highly pertinent to events they actually were and, in many respects, remain. Over the years there have been numerous occasions on which discussion at the symposium has directly led to or facilitated action by law enforcement and regulatory authorities. The opportunities that the symposium offers for networking and making and renewing contacts is second to none!

Given the diversity of issues we address and the value of ‘off the record’ and informal discussions, we have never attempted to record the wealth of discussion that takes place each year at Jesus College and in our regional symposia. However, many of the key issues are addressed in papers that are subsequently published in the Journal of Financial Crime and Journal of Money Laundering Control.
