Finding that her strengths lie within the ability to recondition and reform issues faced within the Construction Industry, it was a natural step for her to head towards Compliance in the Money Service Business industry 9 years ago. Throughout her career, Puan Nur Fazlim has served companies that were facing a myriad of compliance related issues where she spearheaded the reexamination and reconstruction of compliance policies and procedures, leading to an overhaul of the companies compliance programme. This has led her to be a well-regarded Compliance Officer within the industry as well as with the regulator. A testament to this is that upon joining MoneyMatch late last year, her experience, passion and goal-oriented drive has helped MoneyMatch to be one of the first Malaysian -owned companies to graduate from the Financial Technology Regulatory Sandbox Framework and classed as a Class B remittance service provider and eKYC provider.

Furthermore, Puan Nur Fazlim has recently obtained her Masters in Property Investment.
