What you'll do

In this advisory role, you'll be working closely on the interpretation and implementation of high profile new regulations, including MIFID 2, PRIIPs and EMIR 2. You'll provide an advisory service covering regulatory change to stakeholders in the Front Office, Operations and Legal teams and make sure they're aware of regulatory developments that may impact their business.

Your responsibilities will include:
