NEWS RELEASE: Global financial services regulatory consultancy Bovill announces that Rupi Christophers, a financial crime specialist, has joined the firm as its new Financial Crime Practice Lead.

Rupi who will be joining Bovill’s UK team, has 19 years banking and financial services sector experience in areas including anti-money laundering, sanctions, anti-bribery, anti-tax evasion and fraud regulation. She joins Bovill from Commerzbank where she was the Director of Fraud and Financial Crime Policy, Advisory and Oversight.

Rupi Christopher, Practice Lead at Bovill, commented:

It’s a great time to be joining the team at Bovill and to take the reins of their highly respected Financial Crime Practice. The firm have an impressive range of interesting clients and projects which I look forward to immersing myself in.

“This is an important and exciting period for the UK financial services sector as it finds its feet as an independent jurisdiction. It is also a critical time for financial crime. The pandemic has created a unique and challenging environment for firms, highlighted by the recent FCA Dear CEO letter on AML shortcomings.”

“We are very pleased to welcome Rupi to Bovill. Our Financial Crime team will be enhanced by her expertise and leadership skills, particularly given her experience working in financial services firms for almost 20 years.
