Currencycloud, an international payments platform based in London, has appointed Tanya Ziv as its new chief compliance officer and money laundering reporting officer.

In this role, Ziv will lead and further develop Currencycloud’s compliance programme and drive the company’s strong culture of integrity forward. Her appointment and subsequent position on Currencycloud’s executive team "reflects the importance placed on compliance throughout every part of the business, including the board," the company stated.

One of her key focuses will be supporting rapid international expansion plans by continuing to ensure strict compliance. With the deadline for PSD2 and Open Banking compliance coming this January, her immediate focus will be on heading up Currencycloud’s continued preparation for and approach to the regulation and capitalising on the opportunities it creates.

With ten years’ experience in the legal sector, Ziv joins Currencycloud from Lebara, where she was head of compliance and money laundering reporting officer. Prior to that, she held similar positions at successful U.K. finance and technology firms, including eToro and Cornercard UK.
