  • Anti-Bribery and Corruption confirmation requests to Associated Persons;
  • Account Opening, Closing & Maintenance;
  • Board approval: draft Board Papers and obtain Board Resolutions where required;
  • Successfully liaising with other departments such as Treasury, Tax, Finance, external counterparties, front office, senior management, Company Secretarial, and Relationship Management;
  • Performing legal research in an accurate and timely manner in relation to applicable laws and regulations;
  • Assisting with negotiations to facilitate execution of investment related agreements, such as NDAs, Termination Agreements and Amendment Agreements;
  • Prepare Board Papers in relation to Investment Management across the business;
  • On boarding of new banks, including mandates;
  • Ensuring records are maintained in accordance with internal, regulatory and audit requirements;
  • Assisting with the establishment of derivatives trading (and other counterparty) relationships for a UCITS Unit Trust;
  • Maintaining relationships with counterparties and consultancy services as well as other parts of the group;
  • Representing the team in Counterparty review meetings to discuss the business partnership and address concerns as appropriate.
