Regional Consumer Data Steward
Job Background/ Content:

Citi is committed to achieving and maintaining high quality data and to enabling Citi to continue to operate in a safe and sound manner. Data lies at the core of the business and it is a critical asset underlying Citi's businesses and strategic decisions.

As a Global Systemically Important Bank and a Domestic Systemically Important Bank in various jurisdictions, Citi must comply with regulatory requirements and expectations related to sound data management practices such as, but not limited to, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) Heightened Standards (12 CFR Part 30, Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation and Reporting (Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS 239)), Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and other applicable regulatory guidance.

Citi's Data Strategy is focused on building a business data architecture, a Data Quality framework and a systems infrastructure that generate accurate, complete, and timely information in the form of Key Reports (risk, financial, regulatory and management reports) to enable decisions during business-as-usual operations and ad hoc analysis in times of stress.

Having good quality data enables us to drive our business and, more importantly, deliver the best for our clients. To support this need, Citi has launched the Data Quality Program to enhance Citi's approach to Data ownership, culture, quality and architecture and implement Citi's strategy for Data Architecture and System Infrastructure.

Refreshed annually, the Citi Data Management Policy (CDMP) underwent a major change to support the Data Quality Program, representing the implementation of Citi's data strategy for risk management and regulatory and financial information, meeting Management and Board expectations for supervisory standards. It sets the framework to improve the data architecture, data quality framework, and systems infrastructure to generate accurate, complete, and timely information and reports.

As part of the new operating model with new roles and responsibilities introduced in the CDMP, the Regional Data Steward function is a strategic role that is responsible for establishing and executing a robust and regionally consistent Data Stewardship framework and activities that addresses the multi-jurisdictional regulatory complexities with a high level of standardization across Asia and EMEA and instituting a rigorous governance and oversight process across 17 countries in Asia and EMEA, in partnership with the Business Process Owners (e.g., system lineage, mapping data elements and concepts, maintenance of data quality rules and controls).
