Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    Nigel qualified as a UK Chartered Accountant in 1989 and decided already then that specializing in finding fraud and corruption early and dealing with it promptly was where my passion lay.  After working for a multinational company, where he specialized in investigating and detecting fraud, he then went on the work for London's most prominent Fraud Investigation Bureau at the time "Network Security Management Ltd" which was founded by maverick investigator Michael J Comer.  Taking a leaf out of Mike´s book he founded Hibis and the Fraud Academy, and has since combined investigation, early detection and teaching everyone who has a similar passion how to find and deal with fraud and corruption early.  His belief:  "Everybody can be a Fraud Detective".  There is too much fraud in the world and we all need to fix it!
