Financial Crime Compliance

Ruth Hutchinson

Ruth Hutchinson
Head of Financial Crime Compliance

I joined ICT from Barclaycard, where I was Head of Financial Crime Strategy and Control.  This involved ensuring that, as an innovative, fast paced and growing business, Barclaycard’s financial crime prevention strategy was equally innovative and evolving! This gave me great exposure to some of the new and evolving payment methods and technologies and the financial crime risks those introduce to a business. Prior to that, I spent a number of years in Financial Crime roles with Lloyds Banking Group and HBOS covering everything from fraud to PEPs and sanctions issues. My last role with Lloyds gave me a huge amount of experience in managing global financial crime activities and in delivering robust governance and management frameworks for Financial Crime. My career in banking has been centred around large Retail banks but has included a little exposure to the world of private banking and business banking. The management of PEPs (Politically Exposed People) risk has been a key focus, as has overseeing the development and implementation of target operating models to ensure sound management of risk. My career began in HMRC, where my first experience of the wonderful world of Financial Crime regulation was in identifying cases of tax evasion for prosecution under the then newly introduced Proceeds of Crime Act.
