Associate Director, Valuation Control


Join our Financial Management Group as the Regional Lead/Associate Director within our Valuation Control Group in London.

This team directly supports our Commodities and Global Markets (CGM) group. Commodities and Global Markets (CGM) provides clients with risk and capital solutions across physical and financial markets. Traded products include physical and financial variants across all commodities, fixed income, foreign exchange, credit markets and equities markets.

Your specific focus will be managing a team who support various aspects of valuation control across the trading businesses, including independent price verification (IPV), fair value adjustments and determination of market observability.  You will work with existing senior staff to develop and implement process improvements to streamline valuation controls and liaise with our Front Office, Risk Management and Finance teams to develop a strong understanding of all trading businesses and appropriate methods for testing unobservable model inputs.  This represents an outstanding opportunity to be a part of a global, business aligned team adding real value to your internal clients.

You will be a key participant in expanding the capabilities and responsibilities of our Global Markets Finance team. 

Other responsibilities will include

  • reporting key results to various committees, senior management and business heads coupled with the day-to-day management of a team of valuation analysts.
  • You will calculate complex valuation adjustments required for exotic or unobservable assets and provide commentary on areas of valuation judgement for inclusion in financial reports.
  • In addition, you will review new business and product proposals and advising the product control team on large profit and loss market observability.

Key to your success in this role will be previous experience in a similar risk analysis and control role within a Financial Services or markets trading organisation (such as valuation control / IPV, product control or market risk) coupled with a strong technical understanding of financial products and markets and strong team management skills and experience.  You will have the ability to critically analyse information and comfort in tackling new concepts and ideas associated with on-going change in the business.

If you have a collaborative approach, are curious with the ability to learn and adapt quickly whilst adhering to change, then apply today.
