Colum Bancroft

Managing Director,


Colum applies three decades of financial, commercial, and forensic accounting experience in assisting clients to better protect against, respond to, and recover from challenging situations that have regulatory, reputational, or financial implications such as fraud, corruption, data breach, money laundering and sanctions, and complex commercial disputes. Based in Asia for 25 years and a former partner at a global accounting firm, he then managed a group of China-focused companies, before playing a key role in establishing and developing Kroll’s financial investigations practice in Asia. Colum has had considerable fraud-related experience – covering the full range of prevention, detection and response, and in operational, management and advisory roles – and has a degree with First Class Honors in economics from the University of Leeds in England and is a fellow of both the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
