SIGA is set to play a major role in the upcoming OECD Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum, which takes place in Paris, France, on 24 May (16:00 – 17:00 CET).
SIGA’s Global CEO, Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, will participate in the session “Business Leaders – Innovative Business Initiatives to Advance Integrity”, during which he will present the pioneering solutions developed by SIGA in this field. From the Universal Standards on Sport Integrity to the SIGA Independent Rating and Verification System (SIRVS), SIGA has developed a wide range of solutions to tackle not only Financial Integrity issues – the main origin of corruption cases in Sport – but also Sport Betting Integrity, Good Governance, and Youth Development and Protection.
SIGA’s Universal Standards on Financial Integrity in Sport are designed to provide credible, holistic and effective solutions to meet a series of complex and sophisticated challenges facing the industry. These challenges include third party ownership of players and clubs, lack of a clearing house system, poor regulation and supervision of agents’ activities, opaque ownership structures of sports clubs, money-laundering, corruption in bidding processes and the growing use of off-shore investment funds, to name but a few.
Alongside Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, other high-level multi-industry leaders will participate in the event, including Hanni Rosenbaum, Executive Director, Business at OECD (BIAC); Nicola Allocca, Director Risk Management, Compliance and Business Continuity at Autostrade per l’Italia, and Chair of the Business at OECD Anti-Corruption Committee.
Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, who is the Global CEO of SIGA and a member of the B20 Anti-Corruption Committee will be joined at the event by Emiliano di Carlo, Professor, Department of Management and Law, University of Rome, and General Counsel, Snam; Scott Hanson, Director, Policy & Global Engagement, International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), Erik Veltman, Head of Compliance, Rolls-Royce; Nicole Primmer, Deputy Executive Director, Policy and Strategic Engagement, BIAC; and William loo, Deputy Head of the OECD Anti-Corruption Division.
