  • Prepare internal metrics and summaries to senior stakeholders on reporting efficiency
  • Conduct ad hoc analysis to research and identify anomalies and patterns within our reporting data
  • Contribute to the creation of new requirements within the global regulatory change book-of-work


Position Requirements:

  • 3+ years equivalent work experience with a leading investment manager or sell-side firm working in a regulatory reporting or middle office role
  • Familiarity of financial industry regulatory regimes (preferably MIFID II, or G20 EMIR / SFTR)
  • Strong understanding of trade operations, buy-side front-to-back trade lifecycle across a diverse set of financial products
