Double boost for Society's AML team

17 September 18

Introducing new members Fraser Sinclair and Alex White

In response to the changing anti-money laundering landscape in the legal sector and to ensure that the Law Society of Scotland is able to fulfil its obligations as a Professional Body Supervisor, the Society’s AML team has recruited two new members. 

Fraser Sinclair (pictured) joined the Society in July 2018, bringing a wealth of AML knowledge and experience from the financial sector, ranging from quality control to the design of AML training materials.

He is the Society’s AML risk analyst, a role which responds directly to the Money Laundering Regulations’ requirement that the Society analyse its member profile, identify where the greatest risk lies and allocate resource accordingly.

Alex White also joined the Society in July, coming to Edinburgh from the Channel Islands where he worked for nine years as compliance officer, money laundering reporting officer and executive director for a trust and corporate service provider.

In addition to handling a portfolio of domestic and international clients, he ensured that the business met and complied with its statutory obligations. He is a professional member of both the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners and the International Compliance Association. As the Society’s AML auditor, he will specialise in trust and company service provision work.

Sinclair and White are presenting at this month’s AML Roadshows. You can find out more and register to attend on the Law Society of Scotland website.
