I established Pearl Editorial after a 27-year career in banking, where I specialised in the following areas: compliance, anti-money laundering, enhanced due diligence, fraud, bribery, corruption, sanctions, suspicious transaction monitoring, regulatory enforcement processes, banking law, and operations.
During my career I was involved in the preparation, editing and proofreading of enhanced due diligence reports, policies, procedures, manuals, and various forms of banking documentation. Many of my roles involved the assessment and interpretation of industry directives and policy documents in order to ensure that financial services firms met their regulatory requirements.

Working in such a profession required me to be well organised, meticulous and methodical, with emphasis on attention to detail, knowing when 'something wasn't right' and meeting critical deadlines — all essential skills for proofreading.
