SEB Strengthens Work Against Combatting Financial Crime

SEB (Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB) is recruiting Nicklas Lundh, from the Swedish Police, and Ravi Shankar Sharma, Head of Intelligence Development, Investigations and Analytics at Nordea, to jointly “lead a new Financial Intelligence unit within SEB’s Financial Crime Prevention unit (FCP).”

Nicklas Lundh and Ravi Shankar Sharma will “co-head the new unit and report to Johan Sekora, head of FCP. Both will start at SEB in October.”

Nicklas joins SEB from the Swedish Police, where he has been “the Head of the Financial Intelligence Unit and will be heading up SEB’s strategic intelligence and capability development to combat financial crime.”

Ravi joins SEB from Nordea, where he “has been the Head of Intelligence Development, Investigations and Analytics, and will head up SEB’s work to further develop advanced analytical and investigation capabilities.”

Johan Sekora said:

“Financial crime continues to be one of the biggest challenges for the financial industry, affecting millions of people around the world and with the human cost of fraud, crime, and terrorism financing being incalculable. I am pleased that Nicklas and Ravi will join SEB’s FCP team, to meet this challenge and to strengthen SEB’s continued efforts to become a leader in the fight against financial crime.”

Mats Torstendahl, Deputy CEO and Group Senior FCP Manager, remarked:

“The establishment of our new Financial Intelligence Unit is part of SEB’s continuous efforts to strengthen our defenses against financial crime and our ability to detect, prevent and report suspicious activity. It will also allow us to further deepen our cooperation with other organisations, such as the police, following the launch of the Swedish Anti-Money Laundering Intelligence Task Force two years ago.”

As reported June 2022, SEB revealed that it’s entering into a strategic cooperation with tech firm Leneo, acquiring a part ownership stake through SEB Venture Capital.

The company has “developed a platform that helps companies to switch to new business models, where instead of selling products they sell a service, where the product is included together with complementary services.”
