My Story: Kweku Adoboli, Former UBS Trader Who Turned Rogue

on Wednesday 1 March 2017 Written by Adam Bradshaw

Fraud Advisory Panel Breakfast Briefing on Corporate Culture and Fraud 28 March 2017

Kweku Adoboli is best known for his role in the 2011 USB ‘rogue trader’ scandal, described as the biggest fraud in UK history and which cost his employer UBS, over 2 billion dollars, as a result of his unauthorised trading. The magnitude of this crime sent tremors around the financial world and raised questions about how this Nick Leeson style destructive behaviour happened and what can be done to prevent it.

Kweku was successfully prosecuted and served time in prison for the fraud.

At the Fraud Advisory Panel briefing, he will share his story with us, the impact it has had on his life, and the lessons that can be learnt from his experience.

This will be followed by a panel discussion and Q & A to explore the role of corporate culture in determining staff behaviour. It will be chaired by David Clarke, director of the Fraud Advisory Panel and former detective chief superintendent with the City of London Police.
