Jay joined Exiger from JPMorgan Chase, where he served in the firm’s Global Financial Crime Compliance Department as Executive Director, Compliance Director. There he provided advisory services for a number of business units within the firm’s corporate investment bank, including markets, investor services (prime brokerage, broker-dealer services, clearing and back office operations) and investment and corporate banking. He was also the designated anti-money laundering (AML) Compliance Officer for the firm’s two U.S. registered broker-dealers and futures commission merchants. While there, Jay advised the firm’s divisions on AML compliance and assisted the global sanctions department in ensuring adherence to global sanctions requirements. He also served on AML governance committees and conducted AML risk assessments. Jay delivered AML presentations to staff assigned to multiple units within the firm and to broker-dealer clearing clients. He also drafted and provided input on key policy initiatives and AML alerts, with a focus on AML program requirements and Know Your Customer (KYC) policies.

In addition, Jay was a Vice President in Goldman Sachs’ compliance surveillance Strategy Group, (CSSG). In this role, he served as the AML Representative for the U.S. Securities Division, where he provided AML advisory services to trading and prime services units and provided guidance to KYC staff regarding client on-boards. Additionally, he assisted in the enhancement of procedures for one of CSSG’s investigative units, conducted AML presentations for firm staff and clearing clients, designed and conducted AML risk assessments for clearing clients and assisted in drafting a revised AML policy for one of the firm’s business units.
