By Gloria Methri
ComplyAdvantage, the fraud, and financial crime detection firm, has named Jim Anning as the company’s Chief Data Officer as part of its commitment to innovation in anti-money laundering / countering financial terrorism (AML/CFT) services.
The newly created role on the Executive Leadership Team reflects the centrality of quality and comprehensive insights into the company’s mission and products.
“The compliance landscape continues to become more complex as sanctions lists are updated and bad actors try to evade the authorities. Investing in data and data scientists is key to further advancing the financial crime risk detection technology that underpins the service we provide our clients,” said ComplyAdvantage CEO, Vatsa Narasimha.
“With his decades of experience across payments and consumer tech, Jim’s appointment marks an important next step on our organization’s data science journey.”
Anning joins ComplyAdvantage from GoCardless where, as VP of Data, he led the creation of the firm’s data capabilities and organization that underpin its payment intelligence products. Prior to that, he was Head of Data and Analytics at Hive for more than four years during the company’s growth and expansion.
“Up-to-the-minute information is at the core of the fight against money laundering and other forms of financial crime. We are using data science and smart technology to identify patterns of transactions and connections between people and criminal enterprises. Delivering this intelligence to our customers requires a rich seam of relevant raw data and deep data skills across the company” said Anning.
“ComplyAdvantage is doing amazing work in this field and I am excited to be a part of the team.”
