Tell us a little about how you started your work in compliance in financial institutions?
I started my career in 2004 at a Financial Institution and, over the years, I acquired a lot of knowledge of the financial sector and built my professional trajectory in the areas of Risk and Internal Audit.
In 2019, already professionally consolidated, I was the protagonist and challenged myself to know a risk vision that I had not yet experienced: Compliance! I assumed the Superintendence of Regulatory Compliance and Reputational Risk of the same Institution and pioneered this very interesting and broad world that is Compliance.
The desire to learn about new businesses brought me to Pay4Fun, where I can contribute with all my experience and knowledge to improve the controls and diligence environment, not only for the company, but for the entire financial ecosystem.
Broadly speaking, what exactly is the role of a Risk and Compliance Executive?
The Risk and Compliance Executive’s main role is to ensure that all the organization’s procedures, as well as all regulatory guidelines relevant to the business, are complied with and that all risks are mapped and effectively controlled.
In practice, the Risk and Compliance Executive is responsible for ensuring corporate governance, promoting and monitoring the culture and ethical conduct of all employees, partners and customers, in addition to creating and implementing a Compliance program, ensuring the effectiveness of preventive controls and certifying that all company operations comply with internal policies and regulatory requirements.
I like to say that, together with my entire team, I am the guardian of the good conduct and reputation of the company and employees, ensuring that we are not exposed or susceptible to risks linked to lack of ethics and integrity, corruption, financial crimes such as Money Laundering, failure of processes, or any breach of obligations that are applicable to a regulated Payment Institution.
Given the accelerated growth of Pay4Fun and authorization of the company by the Central Bank of Brazil, what is the action of the compliance area in the dynamics of the company?
Compliance plays a fundamental role in this new phase of Pay4Fun, after all, it is our role to mediate new business and, at the same time, ensure social responsibility, integrity and ethical and sustainable growth of the Institution.
Our area is and will be the great ally of the top management and all the company’s employees, guiding, training and acculturating about good conduct and the guidelines to be followed in terms of risk management, governance, relationship with customers and partners, diligence in the business and professional performance of each employee, in the relationship with the Regulator, with competitors and other stakeholders.
Independently, but with a lot of partnership, we will continue to value diligence, protection of our managers and shareholders, with a focus on the customer and business leverage, ensuring that we do the right thing and preserving the good image of our Institution.
What prospects do you project for Pay4Fun in the coming years?
I project an ethical, solid and sustainable growth, with a lot of appetite to expand business, a lot of diligence, fulfilling our obligations as a regulated institution and contributing positively to our sector of activity.
