London (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
World-Check, the leading global provider of intelligence on heightened risk individuals and entities, today launched "Industry Voices", a collection of articles and critical papers which will discuss common issues and challenges faced by the compliance community.
World-Check has embarked on this exciting new project with the aim of facilitating dialogue among committed professionals from the financial, legal, regulatory and enforcement sectors. To produce such a library of knowledge Mr. David Leppan, Founder and CEO of World-Check, has invited industry experts, scholars, consultants and professionals to contribute to this series.
"World-Check is in a unique position in that we work closely with all sectors involved in combating financial crime globally," said David Leppan. "Our commitment to deepen and facilitate global cooperation between the sectors manifests in our annual Leadership Compliance Forum as well as our industry newsletters. We believe that by providing a platform for the sharing of insights and expertise from across the board, Industry Voices will become an invaluable resource to newcomers to the compliance field as well as seasoned practitioners."
