Edward Nkune has a UK government background with over 20 years’ law-enforcement experience within the counter fraud arena. Whilst working on some of the UK’s most serious and complex fraud cases, Edward has developed expertise in data analytics, cross-border investigations, cyber security, eDiscovery, and evidence management.
After graduating from Manchester University with a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics, Edward joined the Serious Fraud Office and initially worked on the investigation and successful prosecutions of some of those involved with the £800 million BCCI banking fraud. Following further cases, including those with national security sensitivity, Edward was instrumental in setting up the National Fraud Authority, of which he became a director. During his time there he published four Annual Fraud Indicators, the most recent of which is still the most comprehensive estimate of fraud in the UK.
Edward is based in FRA’s London office.
