Fun fact: I've worked as a wine tasting guide at a winery in a beautiful castle just outside of Barcelona
I was born and raised in the former Soviet Republic of Latvia and have since lived in England and Barcelona before moving to Denmark. I speak 4 languages (Russian, Latvian, English and Spanish), and if I succeed Danish will be my 5th. Before starting my position in DC, I worked at Dow Jones in Risk and Compliance in the Politically Exposed People (PEP) team.
I wanted to grow my career in AML Compliance and live in Denmark.

My typical workday usually consist of compiling files on new counterparts or verifying existing ones. Other than that, I check for sanctions, matches and/or breaches.
The best part of my job definitely is to read up on adverse information about our counterparts and evaluating the risk in that regard!
