Overview

In the business world, boldness matters more than ever... 

In this volatile and unpredictable environment, the need for business to be bold has never been greater: the need for managers to think and plan beyond the short term; the need for work forces to embrace change; the need for companies, large and small, to consider how to build sustainable enterprises in a world where competition is tougher than ever. This is the context for the FT ArcelorMittal Boldness in Business Awards, now celebrating their eighth year. Since their inception, the awards have established themselves as the premier accolades in their category, thanks to their global reach and the impressive credentials of our eight-member judging panel. 

The awards will feature candidates from Europe, North and South America, the Middle Eastand Asia-Pacific. Winners are selected by a panel of experts including Lionel Barber, Editor of the Financial Times and Lakshmi Mittal, Chairman & Chief Executive of ArcelorMittal, who base their decision on a shortlist drawn up by the FT's global network of bureau chiefs and senior journalists. Previous award winners include Travis Kalanick of Uber, Moya Greene of Royal Mail, Ivan Glasenberg of Glencore, Michael Woodford MBE formerly of Olympus Alan Mulally of Ford, Sergio Marchionne, who spearheaded the turnaround at Fiat and Chrysler; the innovators at Apple, Twitter, Google and Groupon; the intrepid explorers at Tullow Oil; Vale, the Brazilian mining giant; and Huawei, the telecoms group; and Suntech, the solar energy pioneers, both from China.

Financial Crime is an increasing concern for all financial institutions, from the largest Global organisations to the smallest companies and partnerships. Preventing and detecting Financial Crime is rapidly evolving to be one of their biggest challenges, the impact of which extends well beyond monetary losses to reputation and brand, employee morale, business relations, as well as regulatory censure. Regulators and Law Enforcement Agencies are equally focused on ensuring that both their standards and also those of the financial institutions they regulate are set at the highest level.

PwC has an established global network of Financial Crime specialists, with over 1,500 partners and professional staff across 83 countries working to combat Financial Crime. Areas of particular expertise include AML, KYC, Sanctions and Cybercrime, as well as Anti Bribery and Corruption and all aspects of Trade surveillance and monitoring.

A particular focus is also on the development and implementation of advanced technology solutions to help reduce Financial Crime as well as detect any incidents which may arise.
