Jane Alimonda,

Audit Head: Regulatory, Financial Crime and Conduct
The Bank of London


Understanding potential use cases of AI for financial crime detection and mitigation


I am a senior Head of Audit at a newly established Fintech, The Bank of London. My career began in external audit at PwC, where I led professional audits on a number of financial services and public sector clients, with a particular focus on fraud and financial misstatement. I later joined the arena of big banking in internal audit, leading international teams to assess the frameworks, systems and controls specific to financial crime, fraud and ESG. Along the way I’ve proved my nerdy ways by achieving a first class degree, Chartered Accountant status, Diploma in Financial Crime Prevention and became a certified Sanctions and Sustainable Finance specialist. Outside of work I’m a mum to a very energetic 7 year old, lift heavy weights in the gym especially to raise money for rare cancer charities due to my younger brother sadly passing away earlier this year. For fun I l also do calisthenics and skateboarding for fun and love a good crime novel (a bus person’s holiday for sure!).
