The e-commerce market is already huge but has been growing even faster since the pandemic. Retail e-commerce sales were £5.2 trillion worldwide in 2021, and it is predicted to increase by 56% over the following several years to reach nearly £8.1 trillion by 2026.

However, this brings cause for growing concern, with criminals often using fake or stolen identities to access online commerce platforms by pretending to be legitimate customers or merchants. As a result, assessing the extent to which a customer or business partner exposes an organisation to risks and breaches of sanctions regulations cannot be overstated. 

In our next instalment of Wired-In, Yulia Murat, Risk Management and Anti-Financial Crime Advisor will explore the most frequent types of crime and how to combat these financial risks in e-commerce.

Yulia will uncover the following: 
  • An overview of the most common business models in e-commerce
  • AML risks covering some of the most common use cases in e-commerce
  • Regulatory requirements relating to AML controls in e-commerce
Yulia Murat helps FinTech and RegTech firms build AML systems that are straightforward, scalable, cost-efficient, and compliant with regulations. In the past, Yulia led the FCC function of one of the largest payments-focused FinTechs in the world, Alipay. 

Yulia also headed the correspondent banking and FinTech AML team at Standard Chartered, where she focused on auditing FinTechs aspiring to partner with the bank. In 2021-2022 Yulia worked with the FCA to assess applications from crypto firms to be registered in the UK.
