Emma Simarro, BrightPool Client Services Manager, speaks with Graham Barrow on the issues affecting the industry regarding anti-money laundering (AML).
Scroll down to read about Graham.
Graham has over 20 years’ experience across the Financial Services industry, with a strong focus across compliance, regulatory conduct and SME training areas.
Graham was at the FCA in 2008 as part of small team of experts to conduct a supervisory enhancement programme and transform their training and competency approach in the aftermath of the Northern Rock failure. Two months later the global banking crisis hit and Graham saw first-hand how close the industry was to turning off the entire banking system.
Graham soon found himself working within the AML arena, supporting firms in breach of regulatory standards around Know Your Customer (KYC) and client on-boarding. Now Graham is back at a leading Investment Bank working on the aftermath of highly publicised AML failures. Graham has supported a number of firms in AML, including Coutts, HSBC, the Cooperative Bank and Deutsche Bank.
