I want to understand financial crime from the bottom up and travel all over the world to do so.

Nice to meet you! Financial crime doesn’t stop at borders. Networks span origin, transfer and destination countries to hide their dirty assets.

I provide policy advisory services to European governments, EU institutions, and (international) financial institutions on regulatory frameworks on PEPs, high-risk jurisdictions, and sanction enforcement to shed light on the entire global network of financial crime. To do so, I also offer compliance services to financial service providers, FinTech, Crypto Asset Service Providers and other private companies to counter the reputational risk of exposure to Money Laundering, sanctions and human rights abuses in their services or supply chains.

My grounding in this industry comes from my time spent at the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets. I am well-versed in the UN, US, UK and EU sanction regimes, corporate sustainability and due diligence regulations including the EU’s 6th AML Directive and Regulation, Markets in Crypto Assets Regulation, the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

For over a decade I have investigated FinCrime in Europe, Southeast Asia and more recently Africa. I am a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist and Trainer of Trainers.

I started investigating financial misconduct at banks, insurers and investment companies at a European regulator. There I was trained by the Fiscal Information and Investigation Service (FIOD) as a Special Investigative Officer (“buitengewoon opsporingsambtenaar”).

Next, I lived in Southeast Asia for four years investigating the proceeds of crime before they are laundered through the international financial system. As an anthropologist, I always want to include local perspectives and when possible conduct research on the ground. FinCrime is not a victimless crime and I have witnessed the consequences first-hand during revolutions, civil war and coups.

For more than a decade I have built a robust investigative and policy network to fight some of the most pertinent and egregious abuses and their illicit financial flows. My role has taken me all across the globe. I innately leave no stone unturned to create original analysis of the highest levels of accuracy.

Financial services and corporates don’t operate in a vacuum. Companies and policymakers face increasing ESG restrictions, geopolitical tension, economic security considerations, material dependencies like chips and minerals, the reality of political economies and conflict financing.

Anrike applies a holistic approach when providing consultancy services and doesn’t shy away from questions about the political, economic and cultural landscape. When conducting training, interviewing sources and analysing the ferocity of data it is essential to understand the situation on the ground.

In addition, she regularly applies a political and anthropological lens to analyses. The highest ethical standards, informed consent policies and conflict-sensitive approaches are applied to all projects.
