I began my career as a Senior Investigation Officer with the Singapore Police Force in a role that initiates enhanced analytical processes and investigations with reports filtered through from both regional and global Financial Intelligence Units while working together with the prosecutorial branch of the Attorney General Chambers I have since developed core competency in anti-business corruption risk, anti-money laundering, and regulatory compliance from 2011 onwards within the consulting and project management ecosystem with Deloitte & Touche and Mazars, advising Fortune 500 financial services clients, multi-national conglomerates and start-ups Stints in the Maybank Group and the Union Bank of Switzerland have allowed me to look at risk & compliance from a practitioner lens combining it with years of advisory and enforcement experiences, building his knowledge portfolio as a subject matter expert My exposure to Agile and its merit has pivoted me towards what he believes to be a forward-looking methodology in managing the future of risk and compliance. Agile Governance with Data Analytics is the new mantra to combat the rising cost of compliance while transforming data into valuable insights
