Priscilla Gatt

Priscilla joined the ARQ Risk & Compliance Department as a Senior AML Executive in 2017. She previously worked with the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU) as a Compliance Officer where her main role was that of carrying out on-site and off-site AML/CFT examinations. During her tenure with the FIAU, she gained a deep understanding of the AML/CFT legislation and the procedures which should be in place to combat money laundering and financing of terrorism. She also worked with one of the leading private banks in Malta, eventually shifting her primary focus to AML/CFT compliance.

Through her position with ARQ Risk and Compliance she has been actively engaged in assisting banks and remote gaming companies in completing their AML/CFT business risk assessment. She has advised various subject persons on the actions that need to be taken to adhere to the provisions of the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive and her services are particularly sought after by gaming operators.

Priscilla is a graduate in Banking & Finance from the University of Malta.
