The CIBC Research Chair in Financial Integrity aims to develop ways to better prevent financial crime, in the context of organizational cultures and governance rules.
More specifically, it seeks to understand how a culture of integrity in companies could contribute to these means of prevention. It looks at the organizational adjustments that might be required, in this sense, in governance practices but also in the ethical leadership of organizational leaders.
Financial crime includes tax evasion, fraud (including bankruptcy, tax and insurance fraud), corruption, insider trading, theft of trade secrets and money laundering. This phenomenon has become more complex in recent years. In some cases, it undermines the integrity of individuals and businesses (e.g., identity theft, credit card theft).
