Ramparts welcomes Karen Griffin
Ramparts welcomes Karen Griffin to our team.
We are delighted to welcome Karen Griffin, who joins our legal and fiduciary teams in Gibraltar as our Head of Risk, Compliance & RegTech.
Karen specialises in regulatory and legal compliance and has a wealth of knowledge and technical expertise in fiduciary & company administration, and the e-payments, prepaid and FinTech spaces.
Karen has developed and established best practices, governance and benchmark standards for compliance operations for Gibraltar regulated e-money issuers, US banking institutions and payments providers worldwide. More recently, she developed internal practices for Payoneer, a global cross-border payments company, to meet regulatory requirements both in Gibraltar and multiple other jurisdictions.
Karen started her career specialising in insolvency law and trained under the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland. When she relocated to Gibraltar 11 years ago, she was originally appointed Director and Head of Compliance of a local Trust & Company management firm before moving into the regulated financial sector.
Peter Howitt: “Karen has joined us at an opportune time for Ramparts and Gibraltar given the significant amount of work we are seeing in the crypto-fund, DLT and token/ICO sectors. There is also an increased need for independent AML specialist input within the e-gaming sector.”
David Borge: “Karen and I have worked together on many occasions: her knowledge and experience in the FinTech sector in Gibraltar are second to none and she is passionate about continuing to find professional challenges.”
