Tim Tyler, FICA

Head of Qualifications

As Head of Qualifications, Tim is responsible for the development and delivery of the wide range of FC courses. He joined the ICA from the Gambling Commission where, as AML lead, he was responsible for all aspects of AML regulatory and supervisory activity. This was preceded by thirty years in UK Law Enforcement spanning the police, Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and National Crime Agency (NCA). During this time he headed a number of functions including the Proceeds of Crime Operational Command within SOCA - focused on financial investigation, asset recovery and money laundering. Other roles included oversight of the UK’s INTERPOL, EUROPOL and Fugitive central bureau. 

Countering the threat of financial crime has been a recurrent theme throughout Tim’s career. He established money laundering investigation teams across the UK, developed innovative tactics to counter the threat, and worked with many domestic and international partners to track and eliminate laundering at source. Earlier in his career Tim worked in partnership with the Serious Fraud Office and overseas agencies including the FBI in the investigation of complex fraud. The understanding and specialist skills he developed over this time combine with his experience as a supervisor and mean that Tim offers significant insight and practical expertise as a trainer.
