Catie Newell is a Senior Consultant based in Exiger’s New York office. 

Since joining Exiger in 2015, Catie has focused on anti-money laundering (AML) and sanctions program reviews and suspicious activity investigations. She performs global end-to-end reviews for the HSBC Independent Monitorship, reporting to the U.S. Department of Justice and U.K. Financial Conduct Authority. In addition, Catie facilitated a multinational bank’s global effort to respond to internal sanctions program recommendations, co-creating a sanctions best practice guide for use in Asian and European regional offices. She also investigated suspicious securities activity for broker-dealers.

Catie joined Exiger from Oppenheimer & Co., where she was an AML Analyst. In this role, she conducted negative news, PEP, and sanctions risk reviews and screened wires with exposure to OFAC lists or high risk jurisdictions. In addition, she drafted regulatory inquiry responses and conducted ad hoc research to inform complex Chief AML Officer client onboarding decisions.

She began her career as a Tax Associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in the Washington DC metro area, where she prepared and reviewed tax filings for law firms and other private companies.
