http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/sing...ed-9820800

Compliance.. How to determine if one is guilty of negligence or something more sinister (for lack of a better word)?

i thought this 2014 interview by Prof Mak with a ex-convict who offered bribes (been there, done it, switched sides to cooperate with the authorities and done jail time) is pretty apt.

Prof Mak: It sometimes seems that individuals almost slip into breaking the law without really being conscious of it. Can you share with us how it happened in your case? In other words, did you intentionally break the law or was there a way you rationalised the activities?

Richard: I totally rationalised it. But to be clear, I bribed, I knew it was illegal, and I wasn’t thinking at all about the consequences. And I just want to reaffirm, I am in no way trying to justify what was illegal conduct.
Rationalising bribery, in my case, was not a struggle. Many of the illegal conversations I had took place far away from the home office and corporate management. In fact, during my travels, when the talk turned to corruption, the only people present were myself and the agent or intermediary. Thus, given my remote location, the lack of “witnesses”, and the fact that the company was pleased with my personal and divisional sales performance, I felt that there was little chance I would ever get caught.
These circumstances are common in international business, and that is a part of the challenge for those at the front line of international commerce and the compliance professionals who are tasked with helping them to be both successful and compliant. Much of the conduct, like my own, is covered with secrecy and takes place at remote locales with little or no oversight.
I realise that for those responsible for anti-bribery compliance, the choice between corruption and compliance is as simple as “walk away”. But in reality those choices become more difficult when front line international business groups are being compensated with lucrative compensation plans, as is often the case.
When those incentive plans are indexed to personal performance in corrupt regions, as opposed to group or divisional performance, the anti-bribery message can get distorted, diluted, or in the worst case, discarded, as those on the front line now might think of compensation and compliance as a “zero sum” game. It is a dangerous situation for all involved when someone starts to consider compliance as “bonus prevention” and starts pondering, “what does management really want, compliance or sales?”

RE: Keppel Corporation
Thanks, Weijian for the link.

Its a constant struggle for those in the sales line, be it banking, healthcare, IT or whatever industry. To be able to meet sales target.

So many forms of bribery. Not just goods or money. In some or indeed most cases, those guilty were pointed out by another..
Winston Churchill:-
“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”
"The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see."

Keppel Corporation Limited (Keppel Corporation), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Keppel Capital Senior Living LLC, which is held through Keppel Capital Holdings Pte. Ltd. (Keppel Capital), has today entered into a conditional equity purchase agreement to acquire a 50% stake in a leading US senior living operator, Watermark Retirement Communities, Inc. (Watermark), as well as 50% of the minority interests held by the owners of Watermark in certain retirement communities managed by Watermark, for a purchase price of up to around US$77.3 million.

Watermark currently manages 52 senior housing communities in 21 states across the United States, with a definitive pipeline that will bring the portfolio to more than 60 communities by 2020. It has about 9,400 beds under management at present. Watermark’s predecessor company, The Fountains, was founded in 1987 with its original development, The Fountains at La Cholla, located in Tucson, Arizona, where Watermark is based.

With assets under management of US$2.7 billion, Watermark is ranked among the top 15 largest senior living operators in the United States by the American Senior Housing Association. Its senior housing communities offer a variety of services including independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing. With more than 30 years of experience in the senior living sector, Watermark has developed a network of systems and tools that is robust, fully integrated and scalable. It operates on a flexible business approach, which includes senior housing community management, long term operating leases as well as joint ventures and general partnerships with capital partners to acquire or develop single communities or community portfolios, where Watermark will receive management fees, dividends from investments, as well as promotes. Postacquisition, Watermark’s existing senior management team will continue to be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company.
