How did you end up choosing BearingPoint as your employer?

My passion is combining banking/insurance with analytics. I had lunch with a former colleague and learnt BearingPoint’s bread and butter is the financial services sector. Also, BearingPoint is investing in data & analytics and possibly looking for someone like me. I was finally convinced by the personal development possibilities and BearingPoint’s way of working collaboratively.

What kinds of projects have you been involved in, and what does your daily work consist of?

Anti-Money Laundering is a hot topic so there are a lot of interesting projects. Most recently I have assisted a local bank to better incorporate data & analytics in their anti-financial crime efforts. My goal is to reduce false alerts by the model, instruct the experts how to develop the parameters and advise the organization to become data-driven and work smarter - not harder.

What do you like the most about your work?

Financial services rely on data, yet they only utilize small part of it and run many processes manually. I believe I can make a difference and turn the decision-making more intelligent. Meaningful work denotes improving the community around us and it is in BearingPoint’s DNA.
