Viktor Josefsson is a Director at FRA’s London and Stockholm office. Viktor is a trusted advisor with extensive and in-depth expertise in investigations as well as proactive and reactive anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) matters.
Viktor specialises in assisting companies with conducting fact-finding investigations involving complex financial facts, fraud, embezzlement, bribery, money laundering, and other types of financial crimes or misconduct. In addition to his investigatory expertise, Viktor has also worked extensively with companies on a proactive basis in relation to ABC compliance and corporate governance, including assessing, testing and enhancing ABC and compliance programs. Further, Viktor has assisted companies with regulatory responses and settlement negotiations with regulators in the US, UK and other jurisdictions.
In 2021 and 2022, Viktor was seconded to the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) to develop the reporting framework underpinning the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive. The new sustainability reporting standards will take effect as soon as 2024 for some companies, eventually applying over the next few years to the 50,000 companies estimated to fall under the scope of the regulations. This will fundamentally transform non-financial reporting obligations across the EU and provide transparency on environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.
Having spent 15 years in the US, Viktor brings a unique cross-Atlantic forensic perspective to investigation and compliance matters and a tried-and-tested leadership approach to managing global teams both remotely and on the ground, leveraging a collaborative, pragmatic and innovative approach to achieving clients’ objectives. His global experience includes working with clients throughout Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia in various industry sectors including financial services, healthcare, technology, gaming, aerospace, manufacturing, oil & gas, fishing, pharmaceutical, and medical devices.
Prior to joining FRA, Viktor was a senior member in the Forensic practice at Deloitte based in Washington, DC. Viktor holds a Bachelor of Science in Commerce degree from the University of Virginia and is a native Swedish speaker, fluent in English and conversational in Danish and Norwegian.
