Nigel Morris-Cotterill is an internationally renowned counter-money laundering strategist. He is an English solicitor with a quarter of a century's experience in tracing proceeds of fraud and other crimes.
Working with financial institutions and commercial concerns, he has worked on large-scale recoveries and international actions. In doing so, he has been able to identity weaknesses in organisations that have led to opportunities for money launderers.
In 1994 Nigel Morris-Cotterill left full time practice to concentrate on developing counter-money laundering strategies for financial institutions. He has worked with many leading banks, central banks and other financial institutions around the world, providing both consultancy and high-level training. He has commented on draft laws and regulations and he has worked with enforcement agencies in both recoveries and in relation to identifying failures in best practice in financial institutions. He is often commissioned by national banking institutes to run counter-money laundering training programmes.
For the past ten years, Nigel's courses have all been about Risk Assessment and Risk Management. Now, that approach has been adopted by the Bank of International Settlements (and therefore regulators world-wide) and by the Financial Action Task Force.
Nigel Morris-Cotterill's presentations are intended to make people think. He emphasises that there are no prescriptive remedies, no check lists that will make it possible to detect and deter all money laundering. At the end of his presentations, delegates know that countering money laundering is about attitude more than about compliance.
Nigel is frequently invited to speak at and chair conferences all over the world. He is highly regarded by the international media for which he is frequently being quoted in national and international media.
