Director, Custos Advisory

Crispin is an award-winning Financial Crime Risk & Compliance specialist with extensive experience in regulatory compliance, risk controls, governance and assurance. He brings a unique combination of insights, experience and pragmatism to complex group-wide agendas and help clients navigate the fast-evolving financial crime risk landscape.

Through his work in both financial institutions and professional services firms over the past 20 years, Crispin has accumulated in-depth remediation experience in resolving deficiencies raised in both OFAC and AUSTRAC enforcements. This distinguishes him as one of very few professionals with such experience in Australia. At the same time, Crispin has developed deep working relationships with regulators and law enforcement agencies in combating financial crime.

At the invitation of the Australian Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement, Crispin spoke as an industry witness before the Inquiry into financial-related crime (2015). In June 2022, he was invited to speak at an expert roundtable held at the United Nations Office, Vienna by the United Nations Ad Hoc Committee on Cybercrime pursuant to the UN General Assembly resolution 75/282. Crispin has been serving as a Board member of the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) Australasian Chapter for over 15 years and co-authored the CAMS and Certified Global Sanctions Specialist (CGSS) study guide and exam questions.

He wrote the Compliance Best Practice and Enhanced Independent Review industry guidelines for the Australian Remittance and Currency Providers Association (ARCPA) which were presented to the then AUSTRAC CEO in 2016. Crispin teaches postgraduate students on International Financial Crime at the University of Sydney and regularly presents at financial crime conferences.
