Caroline Dugas is currently enrolled at Liverpool John Moores University, England, studying in their Counter-Terrorism Master’s program. Once her degree is completed in fall of 2020, she is looking forward to contributing to research related to terrorism and to expand her network in this field of expertise. Caroline is passionate about anti-money laundering, terrorist financing and investigation. She has been working in the financial sector for more than 20 years and the past 10 years have been dedicated to compliance and money laundering. After following a first training on fraud in 2007, she was eager to develop her skills in this discipline and decided in 2008 to enroll in a post-graduate degree in financial crimes at Sherbrooke University. Following the completion of this degree, she has been appointed the Enhanced Due Diligence Specialist for the Immigrant Investor Program at the Bank and now she is the Senior Risk Manager for the private banking client’s division. These academic and professional experiences have allowed her to develop specific strength in high-risk clients and sharpened her skills in conducting enhanced due diligence verification, all of which brought her to be willing to specialize even further by enrolling in a master’s degree in counterterrorism. The subject of my master’s dissertation is not yet defined but she will be tackling either the financing of terrorist activities, sanctions imposed on financial institutions or financial institutions’ lack of expertise in terms of countering terrorist financing.
