Letter from the Editor, April 2016

In this issue, Elif Morgenroth completes a two part article by explaining how to identify patterns of financial crime and examining the importance of knowing your enemy, utilising IT effectively, and turning compliance burdens into business opportunities.

In addition, Andrew Vaughan Winterbottom provides insight into the Chinese anti-corruption watchdog’s reporting on state-owned enterprises (SOEs), which is essential for companies conducting due diligence with a view to partnering with an SOE.
