$375bn in conduct fines

"Conduct risk is now systemic in scale.
In the past five years, banks globally have paid some $375bn in conduct fines, and misconduct has damaged trust in financial services.
Identifying malpractice techniques is the essential first step to forestalling them, in particular if there is a limited core group of identifiable practices."
