I am a manager with over 8 years’ experience working in the area of financial crime. I specialise in supporting clients with anti-money laundering (AML) frameworks, customer due diligence (CDD) controls, sanctions and skilled person reviews.

My background is in anti-money laundering and previously I headed up our internal CDD team, with a remit that included oversight of customer and enhanced due diligence, ownership of procedures, staff orientation and training, management of service-level agreements and overall team strategy.

I enjoy the variation of my current role. Tasks may range from: providing support on a Know Your Customer (KYC) remediation project to overseeing deployment of KYC technology solutions; testing CDD and transaction monitoring files for skilled person reviews in the UK and offshore; assessing AML compliance, transaction monitoring and suspicious activity report (SAR) frameworks to creating a global AML policy to comply with international regulations; and managing periodic CDD remediation projects to providing support on remediation projects for blockchain transaction screening alerts.

The diversity of clients also makes for interesting work. I like to spend time getting to know their business and finding out how we can support them in tackling financial crime.

Outside of work, I enjoy combat sports, keeping fit and travelling.
