Job Description

THE JOB

This is not the typical Product Control opportunity.

You will join a top tier investment bank in a role with a global remit, aligned to either the Equities or Fixed Income business; there are two open jobs and your product experience will determine which one you are offered.

You will need expertise in either Equities, Rates, Credit, Bonds or Commodities to be considered for either of these roles.

You will be using the analytical skills developed from your experience in either Product Control, Valuations Control, Market Risk or Operational Risk to review aggregated data of trading activity, across either the Equities or Fixed Income businesses, for the purpose of identifying trading behaviour which would be considered inappropriate / unauthorised. For example this could be distortions to Risk exposure or the P&L.

Upon receiving the date, you will be given the autonomy to conduct analysis as you see fit and, should you identify any abnormality, proceed to work with internal stakeholders to further investigate the issue. This investigation should ultimately determine how the trader was able to act in this way to begin with, before presenting your findings back to senior management and suggesting first line of controls to be embedded that could prevent such an issue from happening again.

This opportunity actually sits within the Bank's Risk & Compliance function - specifically Trade Surveillance - however members of the team have backgrounds in Product Control, Valuations Control, Market Risk or Operational Risk due to the transferable skill-set such experience provides.

If you feel you have the relevant experience for this newly created opportunity then please apply to have your CV sent to Tom Warren, Senior Consultant at Twenty Recruitment.
