Martina Tomova has become the Head of Compliance at Uniqa and Uniqa Life in Bulgaria.
According to Tomova, her core competences "are related [to] the implementation of the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive in Bulgarian legislation, as well as FATCA, CRS, and organization of trainings in the Compliance area."
Her function is separate from the legal department at Uniqa, she reports, and her team at the moment consists of three people, "with the perspective to grow, given the fact that Compliance is starting to develop in the insurance business."
Tomova has worked with the Penkov, Markov & Partners and Wolf Theiss law firms in Bulgaria, and in-house in Compliance roles with Alpha Bank Bulgaria, UniCredit Bulbank, and the Paysafe Group. She received her Bachelor's in Law from the University of Strasbourg in France in 2007, then followed it up with a Master's from the same University in 2009 and a second Master's in Law of European Construction and Compliance in Europe from the University of Lorraine in 2012.
