Financial Crimes Compliance: Fighting the War on Dirty Money

Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS), Women Veterans on Wall Street (wVOWS) and the Bob Woodruff Foundation are pleased to announce a series of upcoming event panels on the various job fields across the Financial Industry.  This series is intended to provide keen insights to help identify the translatable skills and competencies that could help veterans and military spouses in their transition – with first-hand perspectives from Financial Industry leaders ranging from the front office to compliance and audit, to Information Technology, Cyber, Human Resources, and more.

Our first panel “Financial Crimes Compliance: Fighting the War on Dirty Money” will offer a glimpse into the exciting field of financial crime compliance. The complexity and techniques used by criminals and terrorists to leverage the financial system to launder money or finance criminal and terrorist activities has become increasingly complex with advances in technology, challenging government and banks alike to monitor, identify, report, and mitigate criminal activity. Financial Crimes Compliance professionals at financial institutions are the first line of defense to prevent and deter these illicit activities, playing a key part in the financial institutions’ operations and regulatory compliance, protecting shareholders, society, and the global economy from bad actors.

In this panel attendees will walk away with a general understanding of what Financial Crimes is and how it impacts financial institutions, commerce, trade and the global economy. Moreover, attendees will receive insights on what translatable skills and experiences hiring managers seek for these roles.

Speakers include:

  • Rachel Kaufman, Managing Director, Global Head SAR Program, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
  • Kevin Lampeter, Executive Vice President, US Head of Financial Crime and BSA/AML Officer, HSBC
  • Thomas O’Donnell, Principal, Americas Financial Crimes Compliance Leader
  • Jeffrey Barden, Chief of Staff to the CEO, Head of Strategy and Planning, HSBC (Moderator)
