LUXEMBOURG, Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Centralis' Governance, Risk and Compliance service line, launched earlier this 
year on the incorporation of Wheelhouse Advisors into the Group, continues to 
broaden its proposition to the alternative investment management sector 
following last month's acquisition of Danesmead Limited. 

Centralis Group today announced the further expansion of its Governance, Risk 
and Compliance service line and Cayman Islands business operations with the 
appointment of offshore anti-money laundering (AML) specialist Gary McLean. 
Gary will lead a new independent anti-money laundering risk management team 
that will focus on the provision of specialised AML services to alternative 
investment funds domiciled in all major jurisdictions. This development comes 
on the back of the acquisition of the independent directorship services 
provider Danesmead Limited [ ] in November.

Under Gary's leadership, tailored investment fund specific AML risk solutions 
will be delivered via a high calibre team of experienced AML professionals.  
Services include client funds' Anti Money Laundering Compliance Officer, Money 
Laundering Reporting Officer, Deputy Money Laundering Reporting Officer roles 
and delivering AML Advisory.

Matthew Crisp, Head of Centralis Governance, Risk & Compliance commented: "Hot 
on the heels of welcoming our highly experienced independent fund directors to 
the group, it is immensely satisfying that we are now further extending our 
services for alternative investment managers. I am delighted to welcome Gary. 
As an accomplished AML professional who has worked with some of the world's 
leading asset managers, the experience he brings to bear demonstrates a world 
class understanding of the AML risk requirements that investment funds face and 
must comply with, along with the practical means of discharging the attendant 
obligations. With this latest development, as well as those to come, we strive 
to bring best-in-class solutions to both current and new clients."

Gary McLean commented: "I am absolutely delighted to join the growing team of 
Centralis professionals. The goal is to provide high quality AML risk solutions 
that are tailored to address the specific needs of investment funds. The 
independence and support network of Centralis Group provides the perfect 
environment to do so."
