Life at Deloitte

Financial Advisory

Circle Wong, Manager

Can you tell us about your background and what area of Deloitte you work in?

I graduated from City University of Hong Kong, with a major in Marketing and a minor in e-Business. After that, I took a Master's degree at the University of Hong Kong, studying laws on compliance and regulation. I work in the Forensic team of Financial Advisory, and have experience in providing advisory services on anti-money laundering/counter-financing of terrorism (AML/CFT), resolving complex matters related to financial crime compliance for different financial institutions.

My work is fun but challenging as you are required to work out every detail of each individual process, and every time when you have a new client, it will give you a fresh experience.

I have met many different types of clients, most of them are financial institutions, including private banks, commercial banks, virtual banks, and insurance companies.
