After gaining a law degree and qualifying as a barrister, Jane gained broad experience in vehicle financing and all types of payments - card-based, e-money, internet and mobile. She worked in both commercial and legal roles in the payments sector for over 30 years before changing her focus to compliance.
In the 1990s, Jane was Managing Director at Access, the credit card issuing and acquiring organisation. In 1997 she became Divisional Manager at Mondex International where she became familiar with the e-money market and associated legislation.
Jane has undertaken a broad range of legal and compliance work for a wide variety of companies - including internet payment gateways - WorldPay and SecureTrading (now Trust Payments), mobile phone payment companies, e-money issuers, pre-paid card companies and money transmitters.
In 2014, Jane obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in Governance, Risk and Compliance from the International Compliance Association (ICA) and is a Fellow there. For 5 years, Jane taught ICA post-graduate students about “The Future of Payments” covering regulatory changes and new developments in technology in the field of payments and compliance.
Jane has been CEO at Kompli-Global Limited since 2016. Kompli-Global offers SaaS to defeat fraud and money laundering. These services include a remote onboarding platform (Kompli-QED) and within that platform modules covering global adverse information searches (Kompli-IQ) and analysis of data filed at Company registries (Kompli-Konnect). Jane regularly speaks at conferences and publishes articles on anti-money laundering as it affects financial institutions and other regulated entities, as well as emphasising the enormous benefits that regulatory technology (RegTech) can bring in reducing costs and increasing the efficiency of the compliance function.
Jane passionately believes that good compliance not only avoids fines and a damaged reputation but also makes good business sense. A thorough knowledge of your customer enables you to retain their business and potentially better target your offerings.
