Sandrine Périot is a Partner at Arendt.

Her role is to strengthen and develop the firm’s service offering around AML/CFT.

Over the years, she has acquired considerable knowledge and expertise in the regulatory framework for the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing. Sandrine is a subject matter expert, helping clients in the banking, asset management and insurance industries to face the many challenges entailed by their AML/CFT obligations.

Her experience ranges from the prevention and detection of ML/TF concerns and risks, to the implementation of corrective/responsive measures, including relations with competent authorities, to address potential deficiencies and ensure an adequate AML compliance programme.

  • She regularly provides AML/CFT training to boards of directors of funds and management companies, and speaks at conferences held by professional associations as well as other organisations in Luxembourg and abroad. Formerly a trainer with a professional training organisation, she helped develop a specific AML/CFT module for actors of the collective investment scheme sector following ALFI’s 2013 release of AML practices and recommendations to reduce the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing in the Luxembourg fund industry.
  • Sandrine holds a Master’s in Foreign Languages and Finance from the Université de Metz (France).

Sandrine is a member of several professional associations and has contributed to a number of working groups and committees on AML/CFT matters, including with the Luxembourg Compliance Officer Association (ALCO), the Luxembourg Bankers’ Association (ABBL), the Association des Compagnies d’Assurances et de Réassurances (ACA), and the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI). Sandrine is also a member of the CSSF Expert Working Group AML/OPC representing the Real Estate Association of Luxembourg (LuxReal).

Prior to joining Arendt, Sandrine gained around 25 years of experience in the consulting sector at a Big Four firm where she was a Partner. She worked on various engagements for clients of the financial sector as well as the public and commercial sectors, mainly on AML/CFT issues. She also conducted fraud, bribery and corruption risk assessments, liquidation mandates and fraud investigations, and provided corporate intelligence services.
