Credible deterrence and the financial services industry

Ryder, Nicholas



This presentation concentrated on the recent cases where individuals have been banned from performing controlled functions as a result of their behaviour in their personal life (such as the ban of Blackrock investment manager Jonathan Burrows caught evading fares, and Mr Verrier’s ban following a High Court judge’s finding that he had deliberately lost evidence during a civil case). The paper comments on the deterrent effect of these bans and whether or not they are proven to increase the culture of compliance in financial services: are those who commit offences in their private lives more likely to be dishonest at work? The paper also briefly considered whether the new criminal offence of ‘reckless management of a bank’ is necessary/justified in terms of changing the behaviour of banks and those employed by them
