Pedro Morales
Head of Enterprise Risk Management, Payments at Google


Pedro Morales heads the Enterprise Risk Management team within Google Payments Compliance; in his role, Pedro helps ensure the safety and soundness of payment entities world-wide looking after both financial and non-financial risks although he focuses most of his time in the latter, particularly, financial crimes risks (e.g. money laundering, sanctions), operational risks, and compliance risks. Before Google, Pedro was an officer and commissioned bank examiner at the Federal Reserve System where he led multiple examinations across risk stripes, mostly focused in assessing independent risk management frameworks (i.e. second line of defense) of financial institutions; he also headed the Data & Analytics team of the Large and Foreign Banking Organizations portfolio, which goal was to enhance the Federal Reserve's continuous risk monitoring program and better tailor the focus of risk examinations. Prior to that, Pedro held roles in corporate banking, risk management, as well as consulting.

Pedro is a graduate from Deusto University in Spain, holds a Masters of Science in Finance from Georgetown University, and is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
