Michelle Frasher



Director, FCC Content

Dr. Michelle Frasher is the Director of Global Content at LexisNexis Risk Solutions (LNRS), where she utilizes her expertise on financial regulation and data, most notably the intersection anti-money laundering (AML)/countering the finance of terrorism (CFT) and data protection and privacy (DPP). She is responsible for inclusion policies, training, quality assurance, and the subject access rights program where she works closely with legal and compliance stakeholders. She engages with government leaders, financial institutions, and regulators on fit for purpose data use for anti-financial crime compliance.

Prior to joining LNRS, Frasher was an academic. In 2014, she was a Fulbright-Schuman Scholar to Malta and Belgium where she examined the politics, law, and practice of data flows for transatlantic CFT operations across policy-making, banking, and law enforcement groups. In 2016, she published the first study of US-EU AML/CFT and DPP risks to multinational banking institutions with the support of the SWIFT Institute. A frequent speaker at professional conferences, her AML/CFT/DPP research appeared in numerous scholarly and business forums. Always fascinated with the politics of money, she is also the author of Transatlantic Politics and the Transformation of the International Monetary System (Routledge 2014), with a forward by former IMF Director, Jacques de Larosière.

Frasher earned a Ph.D. from Texas A&M University, MAs in history and political science from Ohio University, and BAs in foreign language and international studies from The Ohio State University.
