With public finances increasingly strained, CFCS’s Helena Wood explores whether it is time to reconsider the role of private sector actors in the fight against criminal wealth with Katherine Mulhern of Restitution Impact, former detective Jonathan Benton of Intelligent Sanctuary and Aidan Larkin of Asset Reality.
