As the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to reverberate across the globe, many companies have found themselves the victim of pandemic-related fraud. Illicit activities have left them financially bereft and fighting for survival.

As well as external threats, companies also face an increased risk of employees misappropriating funds in order to supplement their income during the pandemic. Such subterfuge has resulted in a fresh impetus to implement systems to prevent fraud, as well as an increased demand for effective means of recovering losses after the fact.

Russell-Cooke senior associate Andrew Pavlovic comments in Financier Worldwide on the impact of Covid-19 on fraud and the importance of asset-tracing in the recovery of losses.
