Marie Barber Quoted in GTNews

Marie Barber, Managing Director in the Compliance and Regulatory Consulting practice at Duff & Phelps, was quoted in GTNews discussing the Criminal Finances Act, in a story on a broader issue around terror financing.

“The Criminal Finances Act is extremely far-reaching and will put the spotlight on a huge range of businesses, meaning many people have a lot of work to do in less than a month to ensure their firm is compliant,” says Barber.

“This new legislation is not dissimilar to other legislation designed to influence corporate behavior, such as the Bribery Act and the GDPR, and as such requires a similar approach to assess risk and put measures in place to prevent the targeted activity from occurring,” she continues.
