    • Ensure our operational compliance teams capacity and controls are accurately reflected when developing new products
  • Drive product enhancements based on audit findings and trend analysis in collaboration with 2nd line compliance teams. 
  • Develop and manage risk mitigation plans to reduce fincrime risk in our products by collaborating with product and compliance operational teams across our global offices
  • Ensure the financial crime product risk framework is aligned to the Wise risk appetite and work to embed this across the Latam region. 
  • Perform regulatory analysis to inform stakeholders of upcoming changes and/or emerging fincrime risks
