The Dark Money Files: The whistleblower, the UK and Russian connections

The Danske Bank money laundering scandal rocked the world, and this has great drama. Danske received a tip from a whistleblower in 2013, but, despite follow-ups by an internal audit and compliance department, senior management failed to take any action in a timely manner.

In the weeks and months that followed it became quite apparent that anti money laundering (AML) procedures were grossly insufficient, and after being tipped off by an internal whistleblower, Howard Wilkinson (pictured), former head of trading for Danske Bank in Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania the investigations and ramifications of the banks failure to act became evident very quickly, with a crisis quickly transpiring for the bank. This podcast delivers insights on this global scandal through the eyes of Wilkinson.

From the sheer scale of the crime to who was involved in and around the game. This fascinating podcast looks at the conspiracy that followed and how it grew far bigger than just one referee.

Responding to Investigative Findings

How should the C-Suite respond to the findings of a whistleblower investigation?

The outcome could be a formalised court process initiated by the regulator. But, irrespective of the action taken and what might occur as a result, some time must be taken by board directors, senior managers and compliance officers to review their internal programs, and react.

In this podcast, one of the key take aways involves this "What nextt?" question and how a serious allegation can create opportunities for change.
