Meet Paul Hallett, Risk and Compliance Manager at Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance
My key role is to work with our clients and third parties to protect individuals and businesses from fraud and financial and reputational loss. Myself and my team monitor the latest legal, political and technical situations to ensure we’re up to date. We are subject matters in KYC and AML, which fulfils our legal responsibility and directly minimises financial crime.
It’s important that we check and record processes on a regular basis to give assurance that we are acting legally, ethically and prudently. I would encourage businesses to look at this website which is a great resource for advice on avoiding scams, phishing and invoice fraud. https://www.hitachicapital.co.uk/stay-fraud-savvy/.
I’ve worked for Hitachi Capital Invoice finance for over 18 years in a variety of roles but I particular enjoy the compliance side because what I do makes a real difference to helping all our clients and staff. Getting Risk & Compliance right, saves time and money, helps our clients to be more profitable and ensures a safe business environment that supports the great Hitachi Capital brand.
