'He ‘wrote the book’ on AML'


Redwood Offshore Limited has appointed Paul Robinson as head of financial crime.

He will join the firm’s compliance and anti-money laundering consultancy team advising businesses in Guernsey most at risk of enabling money laundering, including financial services firms and estate agents, on the most effective way to manage financial crime risks.

He will also oversee Redwood’s provision of outsourced money laundering reporting officers, money laundering compliance officers and nominated officers.

Mr Robinson is an experienced anti-money laundering practitioner and was most recently employed by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC) as an assistant director in the financial crime division. While at the Commission, he took a leading role in the development of the revised Handbook on Countering Financial Crime and Terrorist Financing for financial services and prescribed businesses in Guernsey. 

James Wood, Chief Executive of Redwood said: “Paul’s appointment is an important one for our team. As a respected jurisdiction Guernsey is at the forefront of anti-money laundering efforts and it is vital that businesses are up-to-speed on the latest measures they can, and should, introduce to combat it. Paul is an expert in this field having played a key part in ‘writing the book’ on what Guernsey firms need to do to counter financial crime. His knowledge of the subject will be a great benefit for our clients.”

As well as his contribution to the Handbook, Mr Robinson was also responsible for the development of the Financial Crime Risk Return and the Commission’s internal processes for the assessment and rating of businesses inherent financial crime risk.

Mr Robinson said: “I’m looking forward to using the knowledge I’ve gained from my time at the Commission to help businesses strengthen their controls against financial crime risk and navigate their way through the Bailiwick’s revised anti-money laundering and countering financial crime regime”.
