Partner, Forensic Risk Alliance
[email protected]

Gerben Schreurs is a partner in FRA’s Zurich office and has over 25 years of experience solving technical challenges on complex problems requiring insight into large (un)structured data sets, including matters relating to investigations, risk management and compliance. He leads high-profile and confidential cases in the areas of fraud, information leakage, money laundering, disputes and regulatory breaches.

Gerben has supported many clients across the globe with the creation of analytics solutions aimed at preventing fraud loss or reputational damage. One key innovation he led in the area of transaction surveillance involved developing a bespoke analytical solution that combined multiple factors to identify potential risk behaviour in transactional patterns. This project, which was a departure from industry standard, brought together compliance, legal, data science and technology professionals to shape the approach.

Prior to joining FRA, Gerben served as the global head of systems and controls for financial crime compliance at Credit Suisse. Gerben managed a team of over 50 people internationally and was responsible for the operations and uplifts to compliance systems, with the aim of making processes more efficient and reducing regulatory risks by applying a consistent approach globally.

Gerben previously served more than 20 years in KPMG, where he was the global lead partner responsible for the forensic technology team, focusing on topics relating to data analytics, cybersecurity and e-discovery.
