Priya is a specialist in financial-crime investigations and compliance with over 20 years’ experience. Her background as an investigator gives her unique insight to identify money laundering, sanctions evasion, and bribery and corruption risks — and the controls required to manage them. Priya is passionate about helping clients identify cost-effective solutions that not only achieve regulatory compliance, but also improve their cultures and lead to better customer experiences.
Priya has led a variety of engagements, from risk assessments and independent assurance reviews to large-scale regulatory investigations and remediation projects. She has written expert reports for legal proceedings and has also given evidence in court. As the first in-house forensic accountant for the Assets Recovery Agency, Priya advised on many civil-recovery and criminal-confiscation cases under the Proceeds of Crime Act. She has advised UK Law Enforcement Agencies on serious and organised crime through her investigations of money flows from drug and human trafficking, counterfeiting, fraud, bribery and corruption and money flows to and from terrorist financing organisations.
Prior to joining Promontory, Priya was a Partner at KPMG in the UK. She was the global lead for financial-crime services to a leading international bank whilst they were under a US Deferred Prosecution Agreement.
