I am responsible for the Isle of Man compliance function and a key contact for ILS World's wider compliance operations. Having worked in the fiduciary services sector for over 17 years, I have been at ILS for 15 years. I have an Advanced Certificate in Financial Crime Prevention and a Diploma in International Compliance, successfully obtaining professional membership with the International Compliance Association in 2013.
It has been quite a fulfilling and enjoyable experience to work with the individuals at ILS for so many years. I originally worked in a company administration team until the compliance call (like a Siren's song) was too strong to resist. The culmination of which blessed me with a gift from a member of staff - a Secret Santa present – a "Compliance Rules" t-shirt, a gift that keeps on giving! I feel rewarded to have been provided the opportunity to experience and learn a subject (for those that have not seen the light yet that is Compliance and AML) I am mad enough to enjoy.
I am not completely one dimensional and have attempted to expand my horizons into the world of hobbies and sports, trying my hand at a variety of disciplines over the years (I will not go into detail and elect to maintain some of the mystery). Realising the enthusiasm of youth pays a toll on a once resilient frame, I ultimately settled on something a little less... exhausting... Fishing! Admittedly, it is at a fairly immature stage of mastery but I try to tell myself; it is not about catching the fish but the adventure of the attempt, probably a good job in my case!
