TCAE is excited to invite Amber Scott and Carinta Manarelli to share their expertise on financial crime risk management from a banking & MSB perspective. Access to reliable banking services can be an existential challenge for Canadian money services businesses (MSBs). For financial service providers, there are both risks and rewards in providing banking services. Join us for an in-depth conversation about the banking landscape and best practices surrounding MSB banking.

This Knowledge Series session is proudly sponsored by MNP who have been avid supporters of TCAE since its inception. It is because of support such as this that TCAE is able to continue putting on these exciting events!

Amber D. Scott, MBA, CIPPC, CBP, CAMS | Founder, CEO & Chief AML Ninja, Outlier Solutions Inc. aka Outlier Compliance Group

Amber is a compliance geek with a passion for technology. After graduating from the University of Waterloo, Amber joined the compliance group at one of Canada’s largest insurers where she focused on the implementation of technology-based processes to streamline compliance. She has since worked in in-house roles with major securities firms and banks. Somewhere along the line, she added MBA, CBP, and a few other letters after her name.

Amber joined a boutique compliance consulting firm, then larger consulting firm, before getting frustrated enough with the status quo to launch Outlier Solutions Inc. (Outlier) in 2013. Outlier specializes in anti-money laundering (AML) and privacy compliance. The company is based on one of the premises of Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outliers: that to be really good at something you need a lot of practice (about 10,000 hours). Each of Outlier’s team members has 10,000 hours or more of in-house (not consulting) compliance experience. Amber loves leading this team of entrepreneurial compliance badasses.

Carinta Mannarelli, B.A.(Econ), CAMS | Founder, Global Currency Services Inc.

Carinta has been in the Money Service Business (MSB) space for over 20 years and divides her passion between a love for entrepreneurship and the world of MSBs. Having started her own first retail MSB in the year 2000, Carinta brings with her the experience of having “grown up” alongside FINTRAC (also born in 2000). Carinta currently owns and operates two MSBs and is the current Co-Chair (and founding member) of the Canadian Money Service Business Association (CMSBA). If nothing else, the past two decades has left Carinta with an appreciation of the delicate relationship that exists between banks and MSBs.
