      Head of Compliance & Financial Crime

      BTG Pactual, an international Hedge Fund & Investment Bank appointed Lawson Chase with a mandate to hire their Head of Compliance & Financial Crime.

      The Challenge

      BTG Pactual is a Brazilian investment banking, asset management and wealth business that has had headline-making corporate governance issues over the past few years. During a period of intensive

      regulatory scrutiny, Lawson Chase were enlisted to help secure both an Interim Chief Compliance Officer in Europe as well as the permanent hire for a Head of Compliance & Head of Financial Crime.

      The Solution

      Lawson Chase rapidly filled the interim Chief Compliance Officer hire with an immediately available career contractor who had held this function for multiple financial services businesses. For the permanent search, we conducted a UK-wide market mapping exercise to identify individuals who had held approved person functions (CF10 & CF11) with the Financial Conduct Authority within Investment Management businesses.

      Our preferred candidate had been the Head of Compliance & Head of Financial Crime (CF10 & CF11) at BNP Paribas and DTZ Investment Management and so could demonstrate being the ‘face to the regulator’ within large financial services businesses. She was most recently a senior consultant, managing compliance programmes for a range of investment management clients (including hedge funds) in London.

      Candidate placed: Michelle Bedwin
