  • Thought-leadership for custody and clearing, including participation in industry conferences, and contribution to industry publication
  • Lead and manage the “New Product Approval (NPA)” process should new NPAs be required for the development of new products, and to ensure that products adhere to the appropriate bank governance and that any risks have been properly considered/mitigated.
