Club CFO - Pulling fraud out of the shadows

May 11, 2018

Beijing

PwC’s 2018 Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey finds that 49% of global organisations say they’ve experienced economic crime in the past two years. But what about the other 51%? Have they avoided falling victim – or simply don’t know about it? Since fraud hides in the shadows, one of the most powerful weapons in a fraudster’s armoury is a lack of awareness within organisations. It’s time for all businesses to recognise the true nature of the threat: not as just a nuisance or cost of doing business, but a shadow industry with tentacles in every country, sector and function 

PwC Forensics would like to invite you to a seminar where they will share their insights on the survey and how you can strengthen your controls to address these risks.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Benjamin Ee - Director, Forensic Services (Beijing)

Benjamin Ee is a Director with PwC China/HK and he leads the Forensic Services practice in Beijing. Benjamin, a Singapore Chartered Accountant, has three years of internal audit experience with a Fortune 500 Oil and Gas company and a Singapore-listed transport company. He has an additional fifteen years of consulting experience with the Big Four accounting firms and helped clients in the automotive, pharmaceutical, life science, agricultural and natural resources industries in a number of jurisdictions. He has extensive experience in compliance due-diligence reviews, forensic accounting investigations, US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and anti-bribery and anti-corruption (ABAC) related reviews and investigations, and internal control reviews. His work has taken him across East Asia, the Middle East, Central Asia, and to the UK and the US and he is a frequent speaker at public forums.

Relevant Working & Project History

  • Advised independent committees in US, Hong Kong and Singapore listed companies and Singapore Government bureaus in their investigations into alleged financial, operational or employee-related frauds, where the results of the investigations help them to determine the root causes and in their dealings with either the stock exchanges or the media.
  • Led several pre-acquisition anti-bribery/corruption compliance reviews, internal FCPA investigations, due diligence reviews and investigations for MNCs. These resulted in the identification of several observations in business partners compliance, transparency in the business transactions and local employees’ integration to the compliance program, which enabled multinationals to understand the risks they faced in China and recommended remediation to address the local risks.
  • Directed FCPA regulatory investigations for a prominent diversified media group and a medical device MNC in China, leading a team in a review of transactions relating to potential payments to government and/or government officials and working closely with the clients’ external counsels. The investigation identified several non-compliant issues and the results were used for submission to the regulators.
  • Managed contract dispute projects for MNCs which have ownerships in Joint Ventures with Chinese State-Owned Enterprises. His work involved reviewing the entity’s financial statements, corroborating electronically obtained evidence and co-operating with the client’s legal counsels to build cases for claims.

Benjamin obtained his Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) certification, and is a member of  Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountant (ISCA) and Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS).
