I am a Higher Intelligence Officer currently working on a Financial Development Team within HM Revenue & Customs. I started my career with HMRC as a Financial Investigator, whereby I was responsible for conducting money laundering and confiscation investigations. I am now HMRC’s lead representative on the Joint Money Laundering Intelligence Taskforce (JMLIT) Operations Group. This Public-Private Partnership is an innovative method to combat threat and a collaborative approach to information sharing, aimed at combating high end money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery & corruption and organised immigration crime.
I am currently involved with HMRC’s Project Aten, which is focused on disrupting the activities and funding of Alternative Banking Platforms (ABP). These are an unregulated form of shadow banking that make use of bespoke online software to provide banking services. ABP are utilised by criminals to launder the proceeds of their crimes offshore in high-risk jurisdictions.
