Meet Klara Carlbring! ..or, actually, some of you better not! Because Klara is a shark in sheep’s clothing. As an Anti-Money Laundering (AML) investigator, you need to be tough and I can tell you, we’re happy we got Klara in our ring corner.

That Cluedo happens to be her favourite board game must come as no surprise, however, we are a bit curious about how goats and yoga combines. Oh, you too? Good, let’s dive into it!

Tell us about your role at Finshark. 

A payment institution like we are needs to have its transaction flow under control. My key role as an AML Investigator is to ensure that the services and products we offer, are not used for money laundering or terrorist financing.

If you were to explain to a 5-year-old what you do, what would you say? 

Chasing bad guys online.

What are you currently working on, Klara? Anything exciting? 

As for right now, getting to know my new colleagues!

Tell us about your background. What were you doing before joining Finshark? 

I graduated from Lund University after six years of studying in the area of criminology and economics. Since then, I have spent two years in the fraud department at one of Sweden’s leading banks.

What made you join the team in Lund? 

To be a part of some cool and badass technology.

If you weren’t an AML investigator, what would you be doing? 

Probably work with women’s rights in any form.

What do you like to do when you’re not busy building the future of finance? 

Since I am a sweet tooth, I bake as soon as I get a minute over. Other than that, I spend a lot of time with my family, friends and dog. They are everything.
