Harriet Lance Jones


Harriet is a Consultant at Plenitude Consulting with a strong academic background in law and regulation. She is taking part in developing the Plenitude’s in house technology RegSight, the firm’s financial crime compliance obligations management system.

Most recently, Harriet completed the MSc Regulation programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) with an academic specialism in financial commercial regulation. The programme included courses in Corporate Governance, Tax Avoidance, Capital Markets Law, and Financial Crime. The Financial Crime course, in particular, provided valuable insight into money laundering, asset forfeiture and policing the financial markets. As a result, Harriet has gained an excellent understanding of the EU and UK’s Anti-Money Laundering Directives and Regulations, and of the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Prior to Harriet’s Masters, she achieved the International Compliance Association (ICA) Certificate in Compliance which gave an introductory high-level overview and background to financial compliance obligations. Here, Harriet learnt the core compliance issues and how compliance has developed since the financial crisis of circa 2008 and the scandals surrounding that period.

Beyond academia, Harriet has work experience in a variety of law and finance related roles including in corporate law firms, legal departments of banks and local governments, and as an assistant in Citizens Advice.
