The ripple effect from "home base" investigations can create significant challenges for the operations of multinationals in Southeast Asia.
The thorough internal review that may be required can place strain on local management and resources - and occasionally unearth new issues of concern - and the imposition of strict compliance regimes can be at odds with local operational requirements.
This is a panel discussion on the impact of US and UK investigations on corporates and individuals in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Our partners from New York, London, Singapore and Hong Kong will explore recent investigations initiated by U.S. and UK regulators and explain why corporates and individuals ignore them at their own peril.
