Having started her career in UK Government, Gemma Rogers moved into financial services over a decade ago, initially completing enhanced due diligence on high-net-worth individuals and significant M&A transactions, before becoming the Deputy Global Head of the Financial Intelligence Unit at HSBC. In that role, she led a global team responsible for multi-jurisdictional and multi-business line financial crime investigations.
She set up FINTRAIL in 2016, an anti-financial crime consultancy focused on helping FinTechs and others in innovative financial services manage their anti-money laundering and other financial crime risks. She promotes the adoption of a holistic and intelligence-led approach to financial crime risk management, while maintaining regulatory compliance through the use of innovative technology.
Gemma is also a passionate advocate of diversity, equality and inclusion in anti-financial crime systems and controls.
Transatlantic Response to Illicit Finance Taskforce Member
Thoughts on the Taskforce:
I want to make an impact on fighting global financial crime: given the transnational nature of criminality, and the technology criminals now have to enable them to function illicitly, licit financial actors have to work together to combat this. Having two of the major players in the global financial system - the UK And US - collaborate on this issue seems to be a good place to start.
TARIF aims to strengthen global democracy by identifying viable ways in which the UK and US can combine efforts in tackling illicit finance.
