My name is Phalé McMillan. I am Vietnamese/Dutch and am married and have 4 lovely children. I grew up in the Netherlands and studied Corporate Law in Leiden. I started my career as a management Trainee with ABN AMRO Bank NV in Amsterdam. After having worked for 5 years for ABN AMRO in the legal and compliance department I relocated to Hong Kong joining Barclays Capital.
Having lived and worked for 2 years in Hong Kong I moved to Dubai where I joined the Dubai Financial Services Regulator. After 4.5 years I have moved to Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) in Dubai to head the Compliance team in the DIFC. In 2012 I moved back to Hong Kong with SCB. In 2015 we moved back to London with the family where I joined HSBC Bank as the Global Head of AML Advisory and Policy in 2016 until end of 2018. In 2019 I joined Barclays as the Head of Financial Crime for Private Bank and Overseas Business. Currently I am working for Natwest Group as Head Financial Crime Risk Management and Deputy Group Chief Financial Crime Risk Officer
