Deloitte is very proud to be one of the founding partners of the inaugural New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival. Collaborating with our public and private sector industry partners, we believe that this festival provides us all with a unique forum to engage directly with the realities of fraud, to innovate together across sectors, and to ultimately make a difference through better prevention and detection – and why not have some fun along the way!
Our Forensic Team delivers leading financial crime advisory and investigation services that are totally focused on improving protection from financial crime risks and responding when issues arise. With thirty full time experts working in the fields of Counter-Fraud, Anti-Bribery and Corruption, Anti-Money Laundering and Cyber-Crime, our wider Risk Advisory team is firmly committed to improving New Zealand organisations’ defence from financial crime risks.
We look forward to joining forces with our partners and festival participants to find new and innovative ways of fighting fraud together.

Dave Clark Design
Dave Clark Design has a long history of working alongside the financial services industry. Our interest in designing for this unique industry has taken us increasingly into the digital space, where an awareness of the ever growing impact of cybercrime – and how to combat such insidious activities – is paramount.
Through our interface and user experience (UX) design processes, we ensure the platforms we design are not only beautifully crafted and intuitive, but also as robust as possible. We believe our attention to quality and ease of use, whilst not directly attacking cybercrime and fraudulent activity, nevertheless makes it harder for these illegal events to happen.
We’re really excited to work with Ian and his team to promote the New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival. Here’s hoping the festival will succeed and grow for many years to come!

FINANCIAL MARKETS AUTHORITY
The Financial Markets Authority is the independent crown agency tasked with maintaining fair, efficient and transparent markets for New Zealanders. Part of our job is to ensure consumers are well-informed about the risks and potential scams that can occur within and at the perimeter of well-regulated and properly functioning financial markets. Taking part in the New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival is an important way to raise awareness about the impacts of fraud. Working with other partners from the public and private sectors in the Fraud Film Festival to bring these issues to life, through documentaries and discussions, is a great way to stimulate debate, and find ways to combat fraud and scams.

Omega Investigations are delighted to be a partner in the inaugural New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival. As a private investigation company specialising in fraud investigations, due diligence surveillance, risk and security consultancy - we deal often with the impact of fraudulent activities.

SERIOUS FRAUD OFFICE
The SFO is the lead law enforcement agency for investigating and prosecuting serious or complex financial crime, including bribery and corruption. The presence of an agency dedicated to white collar crime is integral to New Zealand’s reputation for transparency, integrity, fair-mindedness and low levels of corruption. New Zealand’s cultural, social and financial landscape is rapidly changing and this potentially increases the threats. To counter challenges in our environment, the SFO believes that one of the ways to prevent financial crime is by educating and interacting with the community which is why we support the New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival.

We are honoured to be a partner of the inaugural New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival, which aims to raise awareness about the impact of fraud and corruption on our society.
