MISSION AND OBJECTIVES
Fully integrated in the BNP Paribas Group, BNP Paribas Corporate and Institutional Banking (CIB) is a leading provider of solutions to two client franchises: corporates and institutionals, and operates across EMEA (Europe Middle East Africa), APAC (Asia Pacific) and the Americas. The bank is a global leader in Debt Capital Markets and Derivatives. It is a top European house in Equity Capital Markets and it has leading franchises in Specialized Financing. In Securities Services, it is a top five House worldwide. BNP Paribas CIB strives to service the global economy by providing solutions to its clients in financing (ECM, DCM, specialized financing), flow banking (trade finance and cash management), financial advisory (M&A, project finance), global markets (interest rates, credit, foreign exchange, equity derivatives), risk management, and securities services.
As a Regulatory On Boarding Specialist (“ROBS”), you will facilitate the on boarding of institutional clients to CIB and their respective capital markets activities, ensuring that they have satisfied their regulatory obligations before establishing an account. To that end, the Regulatory On Boarding Specialist will be required to interact with clients, internal and external, to obtain answers in the form of affirmative responses, classification codes, and or documentation to satisfy the myriad of industry regulation (EMIR, Dodd Frank, CFTC Rules, etc.) governing the respective products or activity. The Regulatory On Boarding Specialist will work closely with stakeholders contributing to the overall process of on boarding, such as Legal Department, Risk/Credit Department, Client Integration, KYC/Due Diligence Officers, Regulatory Reform Client Contact (“R2C2”) and Business management. The role is critical to the overall on boarding process and the ROBS must be able to communicate concisely on regulatory topics. Moreover, the Regulatory On Boarding Specialist will be responsible to memorialize client responses and record them to appropriate internal systems to enable the account opening. Further the Regulatory On Boarding Specialist will act as a single point of contact for internal and external clients to answer regulatory questions and to provide input on governance around collecting regulatory requirements during the onboarding process. Regulatory On Boarding Specialists will work closely with Regulatory Reform Client Contacts (“R2C2”) as their mandate may overlap and at time may require larger resources.
