Financial crimes are considered a global threat to economies but they can expand to threaten a nation’s security and safety.

Therefore, we are delighted to have one of our mentors Luma Zitani take the time to share her knowledge about financial crime compliance.  

Who’s Luma Zitani? 

Luma Zitani is a specialist in financial crime compliance with over 16 years of experience in Banking and Financial Services in the UK and large multi-national financial organizations. Luma's primary focus has been on managing Sanctions and Anti Money Laundering (AML) control frameworks.  

During the session, Luma shared with our interns an introduction about the financial crime field and explained various types of financial crimes like money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery, and sanctions.  

Key Takeaways

She covered an overview of financial crime compliance and opened our intern's eyes on methods to fight financial crimes in financial institutions. These methods include AML, Combating Terrorist Financing (CTF), and Anti Bribery and Corruption (ABC) systems and controls. One of the tips is that even when you get a job-related conference ticket from a client, you should inform the company and get their permission to avoid getting involved in any crime.

Luma gave the interns an overview of a career in the financial crime compliance field, what are the skills needed in this job and shared some tips on how to succeed in the financial crime compliance field.  Moreover, she clarifies the importance of fighting financial crime and its social implications, and that it is not just a job!  

Thank you Luma we are grateful to have you with us and appreciate you sharing your expertise.
