Katarina CookHead of Financial Crime at Brewin Dolphin
I currently work as Head of Financial Crime and MLRO at RBC Brewin Dolphin, responsible for our AML/CTF, Sanctions, Fraud, Market Abuse and ABC risk management framework. Previous roles include Head of Compliance & MLRO for Europe Arab Bank, Dep MLRO for Bank ABC and Head of Conduct & Regulatory Affairs for RBS Netherlands. Originally from Sweden, with a degree in Political Science and Russian, I moved to London in 2005. Initially I held several different KYC and AML related roles in ABN Amro/RBS, which sparked my interest in financial crime and led to a career in financial crime prevention for financial institutions. Engagement with the wider industry is instrumental in the fight against financial crime and I have always enjoyed taking on roles outside of employment. For 5 years I was a member of the ACAMS UK Chapter and am now the Chair for the TISA Financial Crime Working Group.
