Investigative Interviewing: Focus on Financial Crime

Course Introduction

Interviewing is a crucial part in any investigation into any occurrence involving fraud, corruption, money laundering and relayed financial crime. Interviewing carries mixed meanings and (mis)understandings of what investigative interviewing is. This course is NOT about ‘interrogation’. It is ‘conversation management’ and our main aim is to ‘design out’ common interviewing pitfalls and deal in method, skills and objectivity to a suitable standard of outcome and ethics for a court, hearing, tribunal, or other decision-making authority. The course is highly practical and aims to give confidence in interviewing persons involved in fraud, corruption or money laundering, and the challenges it brings. For example, we train you how to manage conversations and trigger disclosure. Balanced by carrying out clarification interviews of witnesses (including whistle-blowers) or providers of technical reports. How to capture, classify and evaluate disclosures.
