Last year saw an unwelcome re-emergence of the so-called ‘laundromat’ scandal; the term, which harks back to the dry-cleaning establishments into which Al Capone and the Chicago mob funnelled their ill-gotten gains, was popularly attributed to a large-scale criminal money laundering scheme (uncovered in 2014) in which $20.8bn was laundered out of Russia through 96 countries and, more recently, to the rapidly developing scandal involving Danske Bank and its Estonian subsidiaries.
fscom is delighted to announce its appointment of Tony Brown as our new Senior Manager in Financial Crime.
Tony brings with him over 15 years of financial services experience to the team specialising in Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crime Prevention.
