I am currently working as a Business Manager (APAC) in Barclays, Compliance team. In my current role, I manage the headcount budget and financials for the entire Asia Pacific Compliance team. As an extension to my role, effective January 2017, I have been given the additional responsibility of handling a global role, which, inter alia, includes managing headcount for the Barclays International Compliance team, based out in Americas, APAC, London and Europe. I joined Barclays in 2014 as an Analyst in the Compliance Risk Assessment (CRA) Team which facilitates risk assessment, which is a framework for assessing the firm-wide risks and controls in place to establish if any gaps exist. In a year’s time I was seconded to the Chief of Staff team, wherein I adapted quickly and was absorbed into the role full time and also got promoted as an AVP.
I am a Chartered Accountant with more than 5 years of experience in the field of Audit and Compliance. Prior to Barclays I have worked with KPMG and Tata Consultancy Services in their Audit department. In my free time I like to read and travel. I truly live by the saying “Live and Let Live”.
