The Wirecard Saga

In this new podcast series, I am joined by Mikhail Reider-Gordon, Managing Director of Institutional Ethics & Integrity at Affiliated Monitors. Over this series will take a deep dive into the most prominent accounting scandal and business failure in Germany since World War II, the Wirecard scandal. In this podcast series, we look at the main characters, the fraud they engaged in and how they did it, the professional services firms which facilitated the rise and fall of Wirecard and the wholesale failure of the German regulatory regime to reign in Wirecard. As Bette Davis said, “Put on your seat belt.”
