The Role: The Front Office Control Team, also known as the 1b team, form part of the first line of defence within the Front Office. They conduct a number of critical Front Office risk and control-related activities, covering Risk & Control facilitation; Incident management; Breach management (and Compliance pending queues in Aladdin); Conflicts management; Critical control monitoring. This team is expected to stretch its coverage into all aspects of the investment business and is expected to facilitate in the provision of any relevant evidence that supports senior management to demonstrate that it has taken reasonable steps to address any relevant regulations and/or policies. The Team is expected to be independent of the fund management and dealing functions, but sufficiently close and familiar with Front Office procedures to permit them to give advice on control environment during times of change and/or with project initiatives. Advice is given internally (to staff within the front office) and reports or presentations are often given externally (to Risk, Audit, Compliance, Clients or Regulator etc.) Key Responsibilities for this role: 1st line Business Management (Operational Risk management of Risks & Controls) Facilitating the production of key risk and control reports (RCSAs) in the front office. This person is expected to sit with line managers and facilitate the risk review process and produce relevant risk-based reporting (with trends) to management meetings. Incident Management Provision of incident management services, training and (trend) reporting to internal and external parties. This person must understand the front office procedures extremely well and must be in a position to convene incident management meetings (of key stakeholders) to mitigate and close out open incidents. This person will write up the Risk Event Notification (formal report) and should agree with relevant stakeholders all appropriate actions and deadlines to prevent any reoccurrence of such incidents again. Breach Management Pre- and post-trade Investment Compliance monitoring of all compliance exceptions (and ensure rectification measures). The breach management process should follow along the same lines of incident management (above) whenever there are advertent breaches. Conflicts of Interest Management Facilitating the production of Conflicts of Interest schedules in the front office. These schedules are very much like the RCSA reports as they are designed to highlight conflicts (risks); gross ratings (i.e. how likely and impactful could these conflicts be); controls; nett/residual conflicts/risks; and any commentary/actions arising. Knowledge of conflicts and their controls should be closely aligned to a detailed knowledge of departmental procedures. Critical control monitoring On a risk-based (sampling) approach, this person must review the exceptions arising from the dealing and managing processes - typically on a T+1 basis by reviewing the trade activity for the previous day (across all different asset types). For example, the monitoring should include: Dealing exceptions (based on the FCA's Conduct of Business rules): * Best execution * Timely execution * Allocations, etc. * Fund management exceptions (based on the FCA's MAR, SYSC etc): * Errors * Conflicts * Side-by-side * Market abuse indicators * Inside information indicators Conduct (Treating Customers Fairly) Monitoring front office conduct / TCF issue reviews Front office reporting in relation to conduct / TCF Control advice during projects/change Provision of control environment advice in relation to change projects and/or reviews of the department (by non-front office staff, which could include clients). Key Knowledge, Skills & Experience: * Experience of a front office environment, with emphasis on a good working knowledge of procedures, controls for dealing and managing funds. * The person should have experience in how incidents / risk events have been managed and reported (e.g. to second line teams as well as to clients). * Experience in demonstrating an evidence-based approach (or audit-style approach) to monitoring all key front office activities with clear monthly reporting. * Experience of using a risk system (e.g. Metricstream) would be preferable. * Ideally, the successful candidate will have front office experience of market abuse and side-by-side monitoring in an asset manager. * Attention to detail and evidence gathering from various systems will be required (e.g. Bloomberg, Aladdin, voice recording etc.) * Experience of using investment compliance monitoring systems for pre and post-trade monitoring, escalation of investment compliance breaches and commenting on compliance violation reasons within the compliance monitoring system. * This person should be able to flag unusual exceptions and agree mitigating actions with all relevant stakeholders. We live by four behaviours at M&G and we ask all our employees to: * Inspire Others - Support and encourage each other, creating an environment where everyone can contribute and succeed * Embrace Change - Be open to change, willing to be challenged and able to adapt quickly and imaginatively to new ideas * Deliver Results - Focus on outcomes, set high standards and deliver with energy and determination * Keep it Simple - Cut through complexity and bureaucracy, be clear and decisive and never overcomplicate things At M&G Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic objective. We know that an inclusive environment makes us more accessible and ensures we attract, engage, promote and retain exceptional people.
