Annalise Vineer commenced her career in insurance, dealing with fraud and contentious claims. Due to the complexity and litigious nature of her work, she undertook an advanced diploma in insurance to enhance her professional qualifications, knowledge and credibility. Vineer advanced her studies in this field and became a fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute and a Chartered Insurance Practitioner.
Vineer then embarked on a master of science in forensic accounting, which enabled her to transition smoothly into anti-money laundering (AML) investigations in banking. She then moved to the Financial Conduct Authority where she worked in supervision, overseeing the behaviour and practices of a portfolio of firms. Having completed her M.S., Vineer transitioned back into banking and joined her current employer HSBC as manager of the European AML risk models. At the same time, she started a professional doctorate in criminal justice.
She then became the regional head of strategic analysis for HSBC’s financial intelligence unit and was recently employed as senior risk quality assurance manager within the business financial crime risk team at HSBC. In 2018, Vineer completed her Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist certification and passed her professional doctorate with a thesis titled, “The Awkward Question: An Examination of Questioning Techniques Used by Banks to Prevent Financial Crime.”
