As of 2017, four of the world’s biggest financial firms hold 99.4% market share of the top 500 trading companies, alongside control of 40% of the entire consulting market. This immense amount of money and power does not come without risks. In 2020, global banks were fined a total of $10.4bn for money-laundering violations – this is a mass increase of over 80% to the year prior. Clearly, these services are in need of serious law enforcement, checks, and balances. This is where Tola Johnson, resolution-consultant-in-demand, comes in. With 3 of “The Big 4” consulting firms (KPMG, Deloitte, PwC) under his belt as Forensic Investigator, Tola Johnson is a revered expert on financial investigations.

Tola Johnson is a London-based Fraud and Financial Crime investigator and compliance professional with over 25 years’ experience (local and international) with law enforcement regulators, investment broker dealers including over 13 years at professional organisations covering several jurisdictions and industries including financial services, a range of global institutions such as banks, investment houses and industrial conglomerates.

Tola was a familiar face at PwC for nine years, working as a Senior Manager within the Forensics Services Investigations team. Jurisdictions involved numerous fraud investigations, a corporate dispute, and sizeable anti-bribery and corruption remediation assignments.

Following on from this, Tola was snatched up as Assistant Director at Deloitte. He spearheaded client engagements entailing whistleblowing facilitation, fraud risk assessments, delivery of investigations training, and business development activities.

Finally, Tola was hired as Director of Forensic Services at KMPG Saudi Arabia, bringing his journey through consulting and financial investigations to a close.

Within The TCM Group, Tola is a resolution consultant assisting with investigations. His niche focuses on fraud, financial crime, and anti-corruption.
