Fraud and Scams
A working group within the APAC regional chapter, the Fraud and Scams group is led by Andrew Chow and Sathish Kumar Ranganathan
The GCFFC APAC Chapter has established an Anti-Fraud Working Group to better understand the threats, red flags and reasonable responses related to anti-fraud activity. The project entails public and private participation initially across three countries (Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia), focussing on best practices and recommendations that can be used and shared elsewhere. The mission is to develop and share actionable strategies for reducing the harms of fraud and scams through prevention, detection and education.
The leads for each country are as follows:
- Rachelle Boyle, Australia
- Cyril Mak, Hong Kong
- Rayson Tan, Singapore
The group continues to progress and is currently on track to report its findings in mid 2024.
Andrew Chow is a practitioner within the legal & regulatory compliance spaces in the APAC region, where he has spent more than 20 years working in various financial services firms. He has had a diverse portfolio of senior appointments, covering corporate & investment banking, private & retail banking, securities & futures licensees, fund management, digital transformation as project manager for regulatory projects, and which includes a period as external regulatory legal counsel.
