Inhouse

Senior Legal Counsel

Senior Legal Counsel

  • About the Firm: ComplyAdvantage was born out of frustration experienced first-hand by our founder, Charles Delingpole. Despite trying tool after tool to manage his responsibilities as an MLRO, they all had the same issues: being difficult to integrate, hard-to-use, and poor at providing relevant alerts. ‘False-positives’ impair the ability of compliance professionals from stopping financial crime and the activities it facilitates such as human trafficking and terrorism. The importance of addressing this issue ultimately led Charles to found ComplyAdvantage in 2014.
