Rogue trader offers advice on spotting fraud

Nick Leeson, the rogue trader who brought down Barings Bank with losses of £1.3bn, is set to host an event next month on the importance of getting recruitment decisions right.

Leeson’s tale remains one of the most significant examples in British financial history of the potential pitfalls of poor HR decision-making and the ramifications of glaringly inadequate internal company controls.

An audience of Scottish business leaders and HR directors will hear Leeson’s take on how to spot potentially fraudulent activity and guidance on the importance of keeping a watchful eye on employee activity.

Leeson was released from prison in Singapore in 1999 after serving four years.
