Pinot is an AML compliance and financial crime professional with over eight years of practical experience within the financial services business in various countries across Europe. He is co-chair of the ACAMS Baltics Chapter board—and a founding member.
After completing a degree in international affairs, economics and finance, Pinot developed his interest toward global payments.
Pinot had the opportunity to sharpen his knowledge of international money transfers by taking on various compliance-related roles with a focus on anti-money laundering/counter-terrorist financing (AML/CTF) in France, Germany and Lithuania—while being exposed to the ever-evolving regulatory frame around this industry.
He has explored different areas within the AML/CTF sphere, including the onsite audit and oversight part, as well as going through the management of AML/CTF aspects of digital money transfer partnerships, such as banks, mobile network operators and international electronic money issuers. He is now leading the AML/CTF department at Simplex, a fast-growing fintech company providing fraud mitigation solutions within the online payment sphere.
Pinot has been an ACAMS member since 2013 and has conducted over four hundred AML/CTF onsite trainings for businesses ranging from retail Telco point of sales to foreign exchange offices and international banks. In addition, he periodically runs the internal AML/CTF trainings of the staff, within their current organization.
