Due to legacy technology, many banks struggle to keep up with the sophisticated techniques used by criminal organizations. Partnering with clients in the public and private sectors to fight financial crime is a challenging and fascinating area, that never stops evolving

Prior to joining Oliver Wyman, Hugo worked at Rabobank Group, where he held senior positions in several AFC-related departments. His roles included redesigning, reorganizing and/or developing new and innovative capabilities within the bank. Hugo began his career at a global consulting firm where he supported Global AML and Sanctions Remediations and frameworks, based in Europe and in New York.
