Ruth is a qualified chartered accountant with extensive international experience, having worked globally in accounting practices, commerce, the financial services sector and as a financial services regulator.
Ruth qualified with a Big Four firm, working in their Isle of Man, Jersey and Melbourne offices on the audits of banks, trust company businesses, private equity funds, life assurance providers, captive insurance companies and retail finance providers.
She subsequently specialised in the provision of regulatory advisory and forensic accounting services. Notable assignments during this period included: onsite examinations for the JFSC; an AML de-risking project; compliance and internal audit secondments; and a forensic accounting investigation into bribery and corruption at a global corporation.
Looking back on a career spanning seven jurisdictions and nearly 30 years, Ruth considers her respective roles with the JFSC and with Cyan particularly rewarding:
- Her role as a supervision manager with the JFSC underscored her passion for regulatory and AML matters, and enabled her to work closely with regulated entities to resolve issues.
- Her role at Cyan harnesses the depth of her experience to provide meaningful support to clients facing an evolving regulatory landscape.
Ruth is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales and a member of the Jersey Compliance Officers Association.
