Monica Bond BA, LLB, FCIS, CFE, MAE, ACA


Monica Bond is regarded as a foremost expert in Anti-Money Laundering issues and fraud. She has been Managing Director of Bond Associates since its formation in 1999, but her experience as a forensic accountant goes back more than 20 years.

At Deloitte & Touche (formerly Touche Ross) in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s she was involved in the famous case of Dr Hashim –v- Arab Monetary Fund where she formed part of the forensic accounting team that supported this major litigation involving the former head of the Arab Monetary Fund. During her period at Deloittes she was closely involved with other major fraud investigations, including Polly Peck and Banco Ambrosiano.
In 1992, Monica became Head of Forensic Services (West Region) at KPMG where she continued to focus on litigation support and international investigations.

In 1994 Monica joined Grant Thornton as Forensic Services Partner and was closely involved in the major timeshare fraud and money laundering case involving John Palmer. Ultimately this resulted in his conviction and recovery actions that continue for several years. In 1994 Monica was the author of the Accountants Digest on Money Laundering, published by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales. Since that time she has become a leading expert on anti-money laundering policy and procedures. She has lectured throughout the world, particularly in South America where she lectured on behalf of the US Treasury, and more recently in Asia and the Middle East.

In addition to being the Managing Director of Bond Associates, Monica is also a practising solicitor and Principal of Bond Solicitors.
   
 

Adrian Bond, MSC, ACA

Adrian Bond is an accountant with more than 30 years experience at senior level and is a founding director of Bond Associates Limited.

After qualifying with Ernst and Young in 1982, Adrian moved into Industry holding the roles of finance director, general manager and managing director in a variety of companies. For many years, Adrian fulfilled the role of company doctor, going into new acquisitions either to sell them off, expand them or change strategies. In that capacity he ran companies with many hundreds of employees, acted for venture capitalists in taking companies to the market and actively managed foreign subsidiaries. In 1995 he acquired one of the companies that he was “doctoring” and took this through to disposal in 2000.

In 1999 Adrian became active in the creation of Bond Associates and has been involved in many of its cases and financial investigations since.

Adrian’s specialist areas include:-
Fraud recoveries– he has acted as expert advisor on some of the largest fraud cases handled by Bond Associates, notably those described in the Fraud and Financial Services section of this website.

Regulatory investigations – Adrian has been deeply involved as an expert advisor in investigating the conduct of a publicly quoted and regulated UK insurance group that went in liquidation in 2005 (Case EAG). His report identified fraud going back to at least the late 1990’s and probably earlier. The fraud involved the issuing of bonds and then using the proceeds to fund the repayment of earlier bonds where asset security had eroded. The bond holders were defrauded of in excess of £12 million plus interest.

Money Laundering and Counter measures
– Adrian Bond lectures on anti-money laundering legislation. He has also acted as an expert in a variety cases where money laundering has been alleged. He was particularly pleased where he acted for the defence in a case that involved what is termed “cuckoo smurfing” where an innocent woman was induced through friendship during a vulnerable period of her life to hold assets that were actually the proceeds of crime.
