Nico W. Zwikker
- Compliance Expert, former Global Head of Compliance

Nico Zwikker started his career as a lawyer at the Amsterdam bar and after five years of advisory and litigation experience went on to further develop in the banking industry where he has been active for twenty five years. During this period Nico has held a number of senior positions as a lawyer, risk manager and commercial manager. Until 2013 he held the position of head of compliance at two international financial institutions.
Since leaving the Banking industry to start his private consultancy practice his activities have taken him from the financial industry to the corporate and non profit sectors where the number of integrity related issues are increasing and he has expanded the scope from being a senior compliance professional to interim crisis management roles.
Nico’s experience in compliance, reputation and regulatory risk management overarch a wide range of businesses and business risk profiles, from the retail and private banking end of the spectrum involving treating customers fairly programs to specialised derivatives and commodities businesses involving market integrity, sanctions, anti-corruption and anti-money laundering programs.
During the course of his career Nico has consistently advocated a stake holder management approach in dealing with regulators and enforcement agencies at home and abroad and he firmly believes in a risk based, business orientation to compliance.
Past experience also involved a number of risk management related programs including the convergence and governance of the second line functions in the “three lines of defence” model and the introduction of “soft controle” conduct approaches to compliance best practices.
Most recently Nico has been involved in assessing the impact of international sanctions on business models and international customer bases and executing change programs to reduce integrity risks.
He was one of the founding fathers of the Netherlands Association for Compliance Officers and chaired the association for a number of years. He won the 2009 Netherlands Compliance Institute award for his contribution to the development of the compliance profession in the Netherlands.
He is a regular contributor to industry conferences and publications.
