Episode 08: Ian Mynot

Ian is Head of the UK Financial Intelligence Unit in the National Crime Agency, which receives, analyses and disseminates suspicious activity reports submitted under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and the Terrorism Act 2000. Nearly half a million reports are managed by the UKFIU each year, and the Unit is undergoing significant change. Prior to that he undertook a number of roles in the NCA, including overseeing the Joint Money Laundering Intelligence Taskforce and developing law enforcement proposals for legislation. He started his career at HM Treasury, where he was responsible for domestic anti-money laundering policy.

I'm very excited to be joined by a man who sits at the very pinnacle of the U.K.'s anti-money laundering effort as the head of the U.K.'s financial intelligence unit, Ian Mynot. Ian, welcome. I know how extraordinarily busy you are at the moment, particularly during this lockdown period, so thank you very much for agreeing to take the time to talk to me today. How are you doing?

Yeah, good thank you. And it's a real pleasure to be here. I've listened to a few of these podcasts, and I think they're really useful, so appreciative of the chance to take part in one.
