Regulatory Compliance Data Analyst:

This role of the *** Asset Management Regulatory Compliance Data Analyst is to support compliance in the domain of market liquidity requirements. The US and other jurisdictions are enacting rules that fund managers must follow in order to protect investors from adverse asset price movement due to unforeseen market liquidity constraints. In the US, SEC rule 22e-4 creates a regulatory framework which seeks to assist funds in designing a robust liquidity risk management program to reduce the risk that a fund will be unable to meet its redemption obligations and minimize dilution of shareholder interests by promoting stronger and more effective liquidity risk management across open-end funds

The Data Analyst will perform ongoing liquidity assessment and related operational data tasks in support of SEC 22e-4 in conjunction with Portfolio Managers (PM's) and Risk Control (RC) teams.

The Bloomberg Liquidity Assessment (LQA) tool is a central piece of this operation. Routine operational procedures need to be facilitated, performed, and monitored on a daily basis.

General Summary:
Responsibilities include:

Identify a selection of proxy securities for securities unsupported by LQA and send to PMs for review
Review the PM liquidity override before it is updated in the Bloomberg output file and sent to downstream systems, reports and dashboards
Adjust pre-set parameters defined by RC and send them to LQA for updates
Request liquidation details of funds offered by *** sub advisers and provide liquidity data to them
As data steward, review exceptions reported on data quality dashboard and reach out to the appropriate individuals/teams for remediation
Document and verify data procedures required to support this function, validating and socializing operating procedures with colleagues in US, EMEA, and APAC regions.
Build run-book of all recurring tasks and associated controls
Develop tools and scripts to facilitate routine data tasks, seeking to reduce manual involvement over time with scripting and automation
Provide regular and ad hoc reports as required by the PM's, RC, and Knowledge Services functions, using Excel, PowerPoint, SQL, LQA, in-house analytics, and other tools
Support the flow of information between risk systems and front office business users and risk team
Ensuring data integrity of all ***-supplied and third party data feeding LQA, analytics, and internal risk systems
Identify and resolve potential business issues and risks before they arise, escalating issues in a timely manner when appropriate
Involvement in data projects, providing reports and business analysis to support the implementation of new system flows
Contributing to the maintenance of the knowledgebase of procedures to ensure high-levels of cross-training and standardization
Applying knowledge of fixed income and equities markets along with understanding of fund management operations and practices
Prioritizing time and self-directing within a fast-paced, dynamic environment
Being an excellent team player, continually reviewing processes and communicating problems and recommendations with global counterparts

Capability to manage several projects in conjunction with day-to-day responsibilities
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
Working knowledge of equity and fixed income markets, with understanding of fund/asset management concepts
Self-starter with ability to work with minimal supervision
Excellent and demonstrable problem-solving skills
Undergraduate degree in Finance, Economics, Statistics, or Computer Science
Strong knowledge of Excel, VBA is a plus
Understanding of relational databases and intermediate SQL
Prior exposure to SEC asset management regulations is a plus
