Christian Hunt

My name is Christian Hunt and I’m the Founder of Human Risk, a training & consulting firm that helps clients to “bring Behavioural Science to Ethics & Compliance

I am an experienced keynote speaker, facilitator and blogger. I also host and produce the ‘Human Risk’ and ‘Bringing Science to Compliance’ podcasts and my own video channel.

I have over 25 years of experience in Financial Services, as a Corporate Financier, Regulator and Risk & Compliance Officer.

Most recently, I was Managing Director & Head of Behavioural Science (BeSci) at UBS; a role created specifically for me.

In my previous role as Global Head of Compliance & Operational Risk Control (C&ORC) for UBS Asset Management and UBS EMEA, I recognised the potential that BeSci offered to improve the level and quality of employee engagement with ethics & compliance.

I now deploy my extensive in-house experience of “Bringing Behavioural Science to Ethics & Compliance” to a wider external audience.

I am a former Chief Operating Officer of the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), a subsidiary of the Bank of England which for financial regulation. Prior to assuming that role, I was Head of Department within Supervision at the PRA and its predecessor the FSA, responsible for the supervision of a number of systemically important international banks. My regulatory experience also includes a two-year secondment as a case officer at the UK Takeover Regulator.

I began my career as a Strategic, Economic & Regulatory Consultant, before moving into Corporate Finance at Deutsche Bank. I also spent three years as Principal in a Family Office.

I am Fellow (CFA) of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England & Wales, an ICAEW Business & Finance Professional (BFP) a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and hold an MA from the University of Oxford.
