> Martin Woods, See Bio.Martin is the Managing Director of AAAML Ltd., which trades as AML Woods and operates as a boutique anti-money laundering (AML) and financial crime advisory business. Martin is a former police detective who travelled the world investigating money launderers and tracing the proceeds of crimes. As a detective he sought data from regulated firms and used the intelligence with suspicious activity reports (SARs). Upon leaving the police service in 2001, he embarked upon a new career as an AML officer within investment banking in London. The change of career saw him become the author of SARs. As a detective he had encountered and arrested launderers, within investment banking he applied all he had learned. He thought like a money launderer and has always posed the question ‘How do I launder $50,000 here?’ Upon uncovering the answer/weakness/vulnerability, he set to work ensuring it was no longer possible to do so. Eventually, Martin fell out with investment banking when he discovered his then employer, Wachovia Bank (now absorbed into Wells Fargo N.A.) was laundering money for Mexican drug cartels and Russian organised crime groups. He blew the whistle and gave evidence to regulators in the UK and US. Subsequently the bank paid a penalty of $160 million and Martin moved on to become a private investigator and consultant.

He supported the United Nations with a confidential investigation into the breach of sanctions using a company incorporated in New Zealand.
