The OTC Derivatives Analyst will continually look for opportunities to create efficiencies within the aforementioned tasks through workflow and technology. The OTC Derivatives Analyst will work daily with our Brokers, Trading and Technology teams to ensure timely trade capture in multiple internal systems, processing of lifecycle events (rate resets, account openings, etc.) and resolution of reconciliation issues.
