Financial Crime

Financial Crime is becoming an ever-increasing tool utilised by Organised Gangs, infiltrating the financial services sector with sophisticated methodology.

Around the world, regulators and law enforcement agencies are progressively acknowledging that the predominance of economically-driven crime is a considerable threat. Estimates show that the problem costs on a global scale around 3% of GDP. The UK is a particularly attractive hub for those seeking to launder dirty money, commit fraud and engage with insider trading.

As a result, the financial services sector is increasingly investing in financial crime specialists to fight against this problem. This has resulted in an overall recruitment drive for professionals to work for all manner of financial services, particularly within Anti-Money Laundering, Counter-Terrorist Financing, Fraud, Anti-Bribery and Corruption and Sanctions Monitoring.

A career in financial crime investigation and prevention is now a hugely exciting prospect and candidates in this field are highly in demand. With extensive experience in compliance and financial crime recruitment, the Rutherford team has built an impressive track record in finding the best-suited financial crime candidates for top tier clients within financial services.
