Violet Ho Discusses Global Fraud and Risk Report Findings with South China Morning Post

Violet Ho, Senior Managing Director and Head of Greater China for the Business Intelligence and Investigations practice at Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, spoke to the South China Morning Post about survey findings released in the 11th edition of Kroll’s Global Fraud & Risk Report 2019/20. The survey shows that business leaders in China are concerned about disruptions caused by trade tensions, adversarial social media and intellectual property theft.

I think in the bigger picture of where this is going, that remains a concern, rather than a foregone conclusion.”
