Our broad mandate includes: Profit & Loss and Profit Attribution Reporting & Analysis; Trade Desk Support; Product Control; Collateral Management; Data Governance, Reporting & Analytics; and everything in-between.
We are a group of Finance professionals, where our collective experiences are as diverse as our mandate. We work hard, and are always ready to tackle the next opportunity.

About the Role
You will be responsible for the accurate, complete, and timely generation of daily and monthly P&L (Profit & Loss) and PAA (Profit Attribution and Analysis) reporting. The role requires specialized business and valuation skills in order to provide transparency, obtain concurrence, and provide quality analytics of P&L for the Capital Markets and Corporate Treasury trading businesses, while acting as the key escalation point for the P&L reconciliations process. The role requires the application of in-depth product knowledge, trade flow reconciliation, and profit attribution knowledge to ensure consistency and effectiveness of drilling down of the P&L drivers to support Capital Markets and Corporate Treasury trading businesses.
You are accountable for developing and executing against department goals and personal objectives while partnering with internal business partners (e.g. Global Middle Office, Market Risk, Finance, Technology, Operations, Pricing, Accounting) to meet service delivery expectations at the operational level.
You will provide professional / technical advice as the subject matter expert to internal business partners and Product Operations colleagues on the P&L reporting process. We will rely on you to manage the quality and continuous improvement of existing standards, processes, and policies.
Who You Are
You are an eager self-starter with an impeccable attention to detail who feels a personal sense of responsibility for getting the job done right the first time. You are an active communicator who can clearly and effectively tailor your message for the right audience, while bringing together large groups with a deep understanding of the roles of all involved parties in order to meet a target goal. You excel in an environment where problem-solving becomes second-nature and you can dive into problems to understand their root cause, while offering solutions within the risk appetite of the group. You have a knack for data, and have the ability to tell a story with numbers. You know how to present complex financial information in easily digestible formats.
The Global Middle Office is a high-demand area as we offer our team members with a collaborative, high-energy work environment that welcomes diverse backgrounds and experiences. You are provided with the autonomy to explore your areas of interest in a meaningful way. The breadth of our mandate and our cultural motivation to spearhead initiatives will get you involved in the processes of numerous areas within the bank, naturally exposing you to differing viewpoints and objectives. We offer numerous areas for growth including a constant supply for your endless thirst for learning, as well as through upward mobility opportunities. We pride ourselves in our work ethic and constant desire to improve, replicate, and iterate.
