Andrew FlemingFinancial Crime Consultant
Andrew Fleming was a Detective Inspector with the Metropolitan Police for thirty years and has been involved in the investigation of financial crime for over twenty years including fraud, AML and sanction breaches, as well as bribery and corruption cases involving Presidents and government ministers. In his last posting at New Scotland Yard, he ran the Cross Border Financial Investigation Team at SCD6 where he investigated cross-border financial crime involving organised crime networks, including terrorist organisations and financial institutions on behalf of foreign governments under the Crime (international co-operation) Act 2003. In this role, he was involved in multi-million-pound financial investigations with law enforcement organisations and regulatory authorities around the world, which were principally centred on AML, sanctions, fraud, bribery and corruption.
At Westminster, he set up and ran the Economic and Complex Crime Unit, which specialised in investigating high-risk financial crimes involving high profile organisations and individuals. In this role, he conducted reviews of company’s governance and control functions and designed structures and systems to design out internal fraud and other financial crime vulnerabilities such as AML, bribery and corruption.
Since leaving the police he has worked for a number of companies, including HSBC, the Co-op bank and Tori Global conducting AML and sanction assurance reviews, which included reviews of their KYC, CDD and transaction monitoring departments to ensure that their policies, procedures and processes met regulatory requirements. He also provided lectures and training to government agencies and financial institutions on financial crime, cybercrime, risk management and New Payments Products and Services, highlighting vulnerabilities and methods used to detect and prosecute external and internal offenders.
Andrew is passionate about financial crime and ensuring that his clients receive up to date information on current financial crime trends to ensure that they are protected from both financial sanction and financial predation.
