Your role
Do you know how to keep an eye out for and avoid risk? Are you good at working with businesses stakeholders in helping them understand how to manage risks? Do you enjoy working in a diverse and interesting business environment such as the one offered by Investment Platforms and Solutions (IPS)? We're looking for someone like that who can:
– build trusted relationships with business partners to provide advice and help proactively identify, manage and mitigate risks (including business, operational, legal, regulatory, conduct risks)
– support projects across IPS through providing risk related advice and cooperating with the business on risk related inquiries from auditors, regulators or internal stakeholders
– monitor and assess the risk management and control framework for completeness and adequacy, perform controls and operational risk assessments, as well as ensure on-going enhancements flow into the change management process
– assist with executing effective risk governance within IPS APAC through dedicated risk governance forums, in particular the IPS APAC Risk Committee
– partner with control functions to ensure legal and regulatory requirements are observed
– support senior management in discharging their business risk management responsibilities, and work with risk managers and various stakeholders across the organization

We are about 60,000 employees in all major financial centers, in more than 50 countries. Do you want to be one of us?

Your team
You'll be working in the IPS Business Risk Organization (BRO) team as part of IPS APAC in Hong Kong or Singapore. The IPS BRO team drives the IPS risk management process, and ensures the offering that IPS provides is sourced, managed and delivered in line with regulatory requirements and UBS Wealth Management's risk appetite.
