About Eric Wu
I was born and raised in Ottawa, graduated from Waterloo’s math faculty, and I now live in the UK building financial crime technology for Revolut!
A basic challenge we face daily is the connection of financial crime concepts with practical reality, including deciding how to use a variety of technology, tools, and processes. Parts of this are extremely difficult: (1) making the right decisions in accordance with risk, and (2) building processes that allow the business to grow and even help accelerate. Our team focuses on this “fincrime-hard” space – a set of problems that, if solved, will provide significant value in advancing the industry and reaching best practice in regulation and operations.
At Waterloo, I worked my way through the actuarial science and statistics program, and, in my final year, developed an interest in graph theory and optimization problems. I graduated with a double major in Math Optimization and Actuarial Science, and a joint in Statistics.
During my time at Waterloo, I am proud to have served as the Co-President of the UW Finance Association, and to have played a critical role in the sponsorship of the JDCC Waterloo 2015.
