Compliance Jobs News

In London, Daniel Ibrahim has joined financial services firm Aurae as head of compliance and risk. He comes to Aurae — which breathlessly touts itself as “enabling the world’s most successful people to have an artful, personalized expression of the wealth, success and status they’ve earned,” so I’m out — from WEX, another financial firm, where he had been head of compliance since 2017.
