✔ Strong understanding of how data and analytics can be used to prevent, detect, and manage financial crimes.

✔ Excellent working knowledge of Gibraltar, UK and EEA (and other main global) anti-financial crime regulations, industry guidelines and trends within the Payments/E-money, Banking and/or Crypto sectors.

✔ Understanding of compliance risk and control frameworks, including best practices for financial crime risk management.
