Deviant Legitimacy — A Theory of Financial Crime

Journal of Financial Crime

ISSN: 1359-0790

Article publication date: 1 March 1996


In this article, the author begins by restating the theory of criminogenesis which he first examined in an earlier article that dealt with the activities of the futures and derivatives markets. He then extends the theory of criminal potential by examining the conduct of those who work within the Life Assurance and Pensions industry, with particular emphasis on the marketing of personal pensions, and attempts to show that such activity can properly be defined as ‘organised crime’.
