JERRY WALTERS MICA Dip. AML/CTF
Founder of FCS Compliance, Jerry Walters, was well-recognised as a master of AML with an exceptional level of knowledge, experience and skills in financial crime investigation and law enforcement. Prior to setting up FCS Compliance in 2016, Jerry worked for Thames Valley and for the City of London Police where he was to gain over 30 years’ experience in financial crime and fraud investigation, leading the prosecution of numerous serious and complex money laundering cases. In 2019, FCS Compliance was acquired by LonRes and, led by Jerry, FCS quickly became an established, respected leader in money laundering compliance, chosen by leading organisations and industry associations across the UK.
Tragically, in June 2021, Jerry unexpectedly passed away during a cycle ride in Wales. Though very much missed by all who knew him, Jerry’s uncompromising dedication to customers continues to lie at the heart of the business and his passion for FCS Compliance to represent the gold standard in AML service provision lives on vibrantly through the expert team he built.
