Financial Crime Advisory Analyst  - AML, Sanctions, AB&C, and Fraud. 

I'm looking for a bright, inquisitive mind with good academics to join a specialist financial crime advisory team that advises the business on complex client cases across all financial crime disciplines and jurisdictions.

This financial crime advisory role is with an exceptional corporate bank that specialises in clients that most large banks need help understanding. Think of clients like Crypto, MSBs, and drinks firms that create CBD products and ship them globally to a tech startup that creates cutting-edge drones. But are these drones being used as weapons? Can the CBD products that the drinks firm produces cause reputational damage to the bank? What sanctions exposure do these companies have? Are the client's AB&C and Fraud policies aligned with the bank's risk appetite? This is what you will work on, and take a risk-based decision if you can work with this client, why, and if not, how, what solutions are there, etc.

You will work with highly talented managers who will guide you on your way, but you will be given the autonomy to think critically and make a risk-based decision.

Following your findings, you must be an excellent written communicator with prior experience creating reports in document format or email.

You will work with clients over the years and support them along their journey to ensure they are aligned with the bank's financial crime risk appetite as they expand their business and move into new products & services with further financial crime risks.

The bank has a nurturing culture, a meritocratic environment, and clear career plans.

Requirements for the role:

  • Good academics or proven professional experience.

  • Financial crime advisory experience in some capacity.

  • A genuine interest in financial crime and good knowledge of financial crime regulations covering AML, Sanctions, AB&C and Fraud.

  • An understanding of startup/SME corporate clients (not large FIs).

  • Currently working in financial crime using a risk-based approach.

If you are interested in this opportunity and would like to apply, please submit your CV. Alternatively, call Pritesh Chudasama on 0203 637 1607 for a confidential conversation.

Please note, should feedback not be received within 28 days due to the large volume of applications, unfortunately, your application has been unsuccessful. However, I may be in touch with similar relevant opportunities.
