The Covid-19 pandemic crisis has created many challenges for financial services including its workers, customers, and other stakeholders. As we strive to overcome the adversity created by the crisis, we often turn to our ethics and values to guide our judgement, decisions, and behaviour. A crisis can present pressures that can challenge and conflict with our values, leading to dilemmas that, without necessary consideration, can result in unethical conduct and severe reputational damage.

Using illustrative examples, case studies and reference to best practice guidance and codes, this webinar will explore three key areas for professionals working in financial services to consider, including:

  1. Ethics in a crisis – An approach to dilemmas

  2. Considerations for a Fiduciary with integrity

  3. An update on policy measures to manage bribery and corruption risk during Covid-19 crisis

The webinar will be held over Zoom. Please ensure you have access to Zoom in advance of the event taking place. Zoom is available on all PCs, laptops, tablets and Apple or Android devices. The link to the webinar will be emailed to registered members on the day of the webinar.

Places for the webinar are limited and the registration for the webinar will close once we reach capacity or at 8am on the day of the event.
