At the demise of empire, City of London financial interests created a web of secrecy jurisdictions that captured wealth from across the globe and hid it in a web of offshore islands. Today, up to half of global offshore wealth is hidden in British jurisdictions and Britain and its dependencies are the largest global players in the world of international finance.

Anti-Money-Laundering, Counterterrorism Financing and Financial Crime: The Critical Role of Financial Institutions and How It Affects You Talk by Hue Dang ’92, Head of Asia for the Association of Certified Anti-Money-Laundering Specialists. Media coverage in the last several years of financial penalties against global banks such as BNP Paribas ($8.9 billion) or HSBC ($1.92 billion) for money-laundering and sanctions violations—to name just a few examples—highlights the increasing risks to banks as they conduct their normal business. We now live in an era of international money-laundering controls. The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, revolutionized the anti-money-laundering (AML) field and brought into stark relief the threat of the movement and disguising of funds destined for the support of terrorism throughout the world, introducing a whole new effort to combat the financing of terrorism (CFT). As a result of the governmental reaction in virtually all countries, banks, non-bank financial institutions and nonfinancial businesses face tougher national and international legal requirements and harsher penalties than ever before. By the same token, the regulators of those businesses, law-enforcement agents and prosecutors also face greater challenges and responsibilities in their work. The discussion of what this means to you will include the economic and social consequences of money laundering; the latest regulatory developments in the U.S., Asia and Europe; challenges in effective AML/CFT implementation; and key lessons learned from recent cases. Presented by the Class of 1992.

Last weeks video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbn43BU7mhI&list=UUbdfEJ4_kDmKeZ_CbWIM-Dw&index=3 When it comes to wealth protection, it pays to know your enemy. I have seen him up close and personal, and his name is The Taxman... Let me start with a statement of the bleedin’ obvious. There’s an awful lot of money in the world. In recent months I’ve had lots of conversations with people along the lines of ‘a care home suite for ninety thousand is all very well, but what can I get for ten million? Another business partner told me he could probably get five hundred million from a financial institution more easily than he could get a hundred thousand from a private investor. Often the big money is being made in technology companies which are making stuff happen faster, better or cheaper. But the question then becomes, what do these people do with all the money once they’ve made it? The answer is they invest it in the oldest asset of all. Land, and the bricks and mortar built on it. Study the Sunday Times Rich List and the recurring theme is wealth held in property. Many have created their wealth through property development in one form or another. Almost all see real estate as a cornerstone of their wealth protection strategy. It’s ironic in a sense, but its based on economics 101, the law of scarcity. There is only one Knightsbridge. One Mayfair, one Belgravia. One Stoke on Trent – well you get the point. If lots of people want to invest in the same asset, the price is only going to go up. It’s when you run out of buyers that the problems start. Our obsession with property here in Britain is well known, but far from unique. Despite the communistic tendencies of the current president, France has seen its housing wealth grow from a hundred and twenty per cent of national income back in nineteen seventy to three hundred and seventy per cent in this decade. But that doesn’t mean that there are three times as many houses in France as there were back in the seventies. It means that people are prepared to pay much more for the desirable arondissements of Paris or that villa on the Cote D’Azur. It’s good old fashioned capitalist competition that’s driving demand and prices up in the most sought after areas. At the core of Thomas Pickety’s much talked about but little-read book, Capital In The Twenty First Century, is the complaint that wealth inequality has gone too far and that a Wealth Tax such as that enjoyed by France should be universal across the planet. I may not agree with him, but I feel a sense of inevitability that something like this is inevitable. Already the UK government plans to charge capital gains tax to overseas property owners operating through a company. That’s on top of the jaw dropping fifteen per cent stamp duty imposed on properties bought through a company. Some of the tax reliefs enjoyed by buy to let investors are rumoured to be coming under the microscope, while you already know that Labour and the Lib Dems want to impose a mansion tax on all those grannies living in the old family house in Barnes. Yet another possibility is a Land Value Tax which commentators like Dominic Frisby see as the fairest way of distributing the tax burden on those who’ve accumulated some assets. The main lessons I draw from this are first, property related taxes are inevitably going to rise because that’s where the money is and governments are getting very good at following the money. And second, don’t put all your wealth eggs in the property basket because it’s impossible to see how this will play out over the next decade or two. Overcome your obsession and get some genuine diversification into your portfolio across different types of asset, different countries and different currencies. You can learn exactly how to do this from Andrew Craig at the Wealth Summit on September 13th. If you choose not to be in the room with the nation’s leading financial experts, be very careful out there!
