Senior Analyst Financial Crime Risk

Houston

Join our growing Financial Crime Risk team in our Houston office. This team is responsible for the Anti-Money Laundering, Sanctions and Anti-Bribery/Corruption program in the region.

Specifically, you will be part of the Regulatory and Program management team which is responsible for the administration and governance of the regional program and overarching risk framework. In addition to program management, the team is responsible for financial crimes issues related to our Commodities and Global Markets businesses and financial advisory arm.

Playing a key role in implementing financial crime risk related policies and procedures which are compliant with our global policies, as well as local regulatory requirements, your position will be dynamic as you support business activities across our offices in the Americas.

Your primary duties will include:

  • Creative development and execution of management information reporting
  • Preparation and delivery of data for internal/external audit and examinations
  • Management and execution of ongoing reporting obligations
  • Maintaining regulatory knowledge and horizon scanning to inform views of emerging risks and focus areas
  • Program governance including quality assurance and documentary maintenance
  • Day-to-day customer due diligence advisory and approvals
  • Serve as regional representative on global working groups

Your ability to conduct research, work independently and determine priorities and meet deadlines will help you succeed in the Financial Crime Risk division. Your motivated personality will also make it natural for you to keep abreast of changes to regulatory requirements and to also assess impact and communicate changes to relevant stakeholders.

To be successful in this role, you will have at least 1 year of experience (advanced degree may be substituted for direct experience) in a risk function, preferably within the financial services industry and with exposure to financial crimes or underlying disciplines (AML, sanctions, transaction monitoring, and client diligence). You may have gained this experience in a financial services firm or from consulting with financial services firms as clients in a professional services environment. Technical proficiency in Excel and PowerBi is important in this role.

If you are ready to explore this exciting opportunity further, we’d love to hear from you!
