Course Overview

In this session delegates will explore the basics of asset tracing – a topic which delegates may hope to never be exposed to but of which a working knowledge is most important.

Asset Tracing is the identification of property or valuables that clients want to recover, generally through the courts or by negotiated settlement. Globalisation has facilitated the transfer and movement of assets to all parts of the world and when this goes awry either by fraud or dispute having a working knowledge of how those assets may be recovered is key and the challenges involved in attempting to recover them.
