PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

More than fifteen years of knowledge and experience conducting financial and regulatory investigations while building and maintaining relationships between clients and bankers/traders. More specifically, became an expert on preventing corruption, fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes from occurring within the institutions, while structuring investigative reports on each client. Fluent in English, with an intermediate level of Spanish. I have participated in projects onboarding new clients and remediated existing client up to current standards. Investigations have been conducted from low to high risk clients, and even rejection of clients based on risk being too high. Experience with clients from South America, North America, Middle East, Asia, and Africa. I have worked with broker-dealers, traders, private banking and retail clients. My projects required for me to liaise with upper management and business side to obtain the necessary documentation to remediate or onboard new clients. Some client required documents which needed to be translated from Spanish to English in order to extract the necessary information needed to meet source of wealth requirements. Some of the programs I have used are Lexis Nexis, Lexis Diligence, World-Check, Accuity, MIS Reports, Finra, SEC, Bankers Almanac, Factiva, Mint, Avox, RDC, Bloomberg, Capital IQ (Standard & Poors), OFAC
