FourthLine provide specialist MLRO and SMF16 talent to London FinTech

Our client is a London based FinTech that specialises in payment solutions. They were scaling the business by growing their headcount by 100%.

The Challenge

Following series A funding, the client had identified a need to improve their regulatory infrastructure.

There were three main challenges:

  • Firstly, the primary investor wanted a female leader in the role
  • Secondly, the client only had a budget for one hire, meaning they wanted a combined MLRO and compliance professional
  • Finally, the client was in the process of launching their product meaning timescales were very tight

The Solution

The client chose FourthLine’s Critical Talent solution.

The client valued the in-depth research offered by this solution. 

It ensured that the client could visualise and gain insight into the entire candidate market in London and South East England. 

They were certain they were hiring the best possible person rather than the best available person.

It allowed our project team to focus almost entirely on this brief to meet the pressing timescale.
