Wirecard, a former DAX-listed fintech company specialising in discreet online payments, filed for insolvency in 2020 after an exposé of its multi-billion-dollar fraud. SKANDAL! Bringing Down Wirecard is a Netflix feature documentary about a team of investigative journalists at the Financial Times unraveling the fraud. Dan McCrum, part of the investigations team and author of Money Men (now adapted as SKANDAL!), will join us on Zoom for a post-screening discussion on the challenges he and his team faced, including government allegations of market manipulation, as well as the lessons learnt regarding market oversight and much more. Moderated by FCC President Keith Richburg.

Dan McCrum is a multi-award winning journalist and author. He is a member of the Financial Times investigations team, and has spent 15 years writing about business from New York and London. His reporting has been recognised with more than a dozen prizes, including journalist of the year at the 2020 British Press Awards. His first book Money Men: a hot start up, a billion dollar fraud, a fight for the truth tells the thrilling inside story of the astonishing rise and crashing fall of the $30bn German fintech Wirecard.
