Cum-Ex: a multi-billion tax trading scandal

Published on 14 March 2022

In a much-anticipated podcast we revisit the multi-billion tax trading scandal known as Cum-Ex, and consider recent developments and discuss why this rapidly expanding cross-border tax fraud remains of interest 5 years after it was first exposed.

With so many twists and turns since Bloomberg journalist Donal Griffin first covered Cum-Ex fraud on Taxing Matters episode 12 back in December 2020, we are delighted to be joined by barrister David Stern, to discuss recent developments.

David is Joint Head of the Regulation and Business Crime Practice Group at 5 St Andrews Hill Chambers, and is currently retained by several clients with exposure to the on-going Cum-Ex trading investigations and is a leading expert in this specialised area.
