Having completed an MBA at Cass Business School in 2000, Parish has since held senior roles with RBS, Barclays and Deutsche Bank. Most recently he spent almost two years as Director – EMEA COO for HSBC.

In his new role with Mansion House Consulting, Parish will be speaking to COO’s, regulatory compliance professionals and MLRO’s at both long-established and emerging financial institutions, who are grappling with the increasingly complex challenges that financial crime presents to the financial services industry. His team will be providing practitioner-led guidance regarding the latest insights, and what constitutes a fit-for-purpose financial crime risk management strategy.

The news follows the May appointment by Mansion House Consulting of Simon Tatam. Joining as the firm’s new Director, Head of Treasury, Tatam arrived having spent almost 30 years as a Treasurer for companies – including some of the most turbulent economic times in modern history.
