Alison Donnelly, Director and Head of Advisory at fscom, has been selected from a worldwide talent pool to receive a top global industry award.
Alison was recently awarded ‘AML and Payment Services Adviser of the Year’ at the Finance Monthly Global Awards 2018.
The Finance Monthly Global Awards recognise the success of companies and advisers who have demonstrated innovation and delivered results. The awards distinguish impressive excellence and achievements from both the financial and legal industries.
On receiving the prestigious award, Alison commented: “To be presented with a global award for my work in the AML and Payment Services sector, further solidifies the importance of diversity in distinction.
“Research shows that the more diverse a company is, the more productive it is and the greater the performance of corporate and social governance.
“This award only proves to substantiate how impactful the inclusion of a diverse workforce can be, yet it remains evident that women are still underrepresented in the financial compliance and payment sectors.
“Our FinTech clients are at the forefront of the payments sector, leading innovation that changes the way in which we pay. As a result, they require compliance advice that not only understands what they are trying to accomplish, but also how they work.
“At fscom, we recognise the importance of our people offering deep domain knowledge and technical expertise. To successfully achieve this level of expertise, we draw talent from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. This enables us to stay at the forefront of the payments compliance sector.
“It is therefore imperative that we encourage more women into these sectors, where their input will make a valuable contribution and difference to how the sector evolves and operates.
“I would like to thank all of those involved in the Finance Monthly Global Awards 2018 for recognising women as key influencers in this space. I am delighted that my work in AML and Payment Services has been recognised globally and feel that this achievement supports the proposed growth plans for fscom in the near future.”
