The South African Institute of Corporate Fraud Management is committed to improving the lives of the South African citizens and those of its neighbours.
Economic crime and ethics abuse affects everyone in measurable ways not least of all by draining economies and increasing the costs of living for ordinary consumers.
Economic crime contributes to joblessness and deprives the government of much needed revenue to fund grass roots projects and infrastructure development.
High levels of bribery and corruption along with economic crime in a country creates a negative image in the eyes of the international community and discourages investment leading to further job losses. Higher levels of unemployment lead to higher levels of petty crime and violent crimes.
Of course, we are living in a global village. The state of our neighbour economies has a direct impact on our own. It would not only be immoral, but irresponsible to ignore their plight. That is why we are as committed to helping our neighbours as we are toward helping our own people.
The Institute is a non-political philanthropic organisation dedicated to being part of the South African solution and it’s Renaissance.
Our Mission is to promote ethical and responsible leadership - to provide a resource for citizens to report ethics abuse anonymously while ensuring absolute confidentiality - to vigorously oppose any regulations, statements of standards, corporate governance tenets or laws which might give rise to or serve to promote conflicts of interest in private business or the business of government.
To achieve this latter aim we provide information for dissemination and discourse sourced from around the globe as well as incisive and cutting comment and analyses on various platforms.
Furthermore it is our mission to open skills portals by providing a platform for suitably qualified Africans to seek employment in countries on the Continent thereby ensuring that any skills migration is not lost to the continent and in doing so further promoting the principles and vision of the African Renaissance.
Finally, The Institute serves as the only accreditation body in Africa, for Africans, who are employed in the field of Fraud Management and Investigation. The Institute provides the highest and most intensive levels of skills training available on the continent.
