Compliance Failures of 2018
As the festive period is nearing, it is interesting for anyone within the compliance industry to look back at the array of scandals that have hit our industry this year.

Virtual currencies are the new emerging market, they are currently valued at $400bn, yet little is known about how they work and the uncertainty about how to regulate them is growing ever more prevalent.
