Risk & Compliance
Influence our investment approach. Guide our business. And help safeguard our reputation. In Risk & Compliance, you’ll have your finger on the pulse of our business strategy.
Full training and support. Practical experience. Theoretical learning. On our two-year Risk & Compliance programme you can look forward to everything you need for a flexible global career.
You’ll join a technical training programme that gives you insights into all aspects of investment management. Our thorough induction will prepare you for the Investment Management Certificate Exam within your first month. Then you’ll be encouraged to study for relevant professional qualifications such as the Diploma in Investment Compliance.
In this diverse global business area, you’ll be working with people across our business and contributing to a variety of projects. This may involve managing our relationship with regulators in different countries, advising different business areas on meeting regulations and helping to manage risk.
You might be analysing the impact of new regulation, preparing courses to train staff in new regulations, or clearing people for compliance. Or you could be managing notifications to regulators, checking marketing material, helping to review outsourced service providers or assessing compliance with investment restrictions.
Whatever your role, you may have the chance to work overseas.
In this business-critical function, you’ll be helping to develop and drive the implementation of our risk strategy. Ensuring that we operate with integrity, you might help to ensure risk is included in business aims or managed independently. You could also be involved in implementing a risk management framework or overseeing our appetite for risk in line with our business objectives.
This will involve working closely with other governance functions, such as Compliance, Group Internal Audit and Group Legal. Identifying risks and challenging the group’s risk profile around the world, you could be working alongside and learning from a wide range of risk specialists.
