ICAEW Insights: Making sense of Russia, M&A and conflicts of interest
Play • 28 min

On the latest ICAEW Insights podcast, we explore how accountants can go about approaching some of the year’s most challenging professional issues.

World events have moved quickly this year. Successive waves of sanctions against Russia and the return of M&A activity – as well as the subsequent spike in conflict-of-interest queries – have meant that accountants are increasingly needing to make sense of grey areas.

With accountants typically used to being the ones with the answers, who assists them when the path forward is unclear? Enter the ICAEW Technical and Ethics helpdesk.

Host Philippa Lamb is joined by David Stevens and Cerys Freemantle, professional consultants at the helpdesk, to make sense of these tricky topics and provide advice on next steps where there is no clear right answer.
