Business advisory firm, NOUV, has appointed Daniel Bilocca as Risk and Compliance Director, bringing years of experience within previous roles at KSI Malta and HSBC Bank Malta to his new role.
Mark Aquilina, NOUV’s Founding Partner, commented on the appointment, asserting that risk and compliance procedures have always been crucial within an industry that thrives on trust and confidence, “and the current scenario is also exerting a lot more pressure on the financial and professional services sector to operate more transparently to restore its reputation.”
“At NOUV we have always advocated in favour of stronger and more effective AML procedures and more importantly, for increased knowledge across the industry.”
Mr Bilocca’s appointment is in line with the growth of NOUV’s compliance team over the past months, motivated by the company’s duty and responsibility as financial practitioners and advisors to ensure they have a strong risk and compliance team.
“Daniel brings with him a wealth of experience and his input will contribute the right guidance and support that will help us navigate the intricate compliance and AML procedures,” Mr Aquilina added.
For the last five years, Daniel has occupied various senior roles related to Anti-Money Laundering, compliance and risk management, reporting to various committee members at board level. His roles at HSBC Bank Malta and KSi Malta respectively, have helped him extend his skillset, garnering experience and delivering more value.
Within his previous capacities, Mr Bilocca played a pivotal role in drafting numerous internal policies pertaining to AML and risk, and has participated in local and international panel discussions, conferences and summits, on subjects related to blockchain, risk management and compliance.
