Investment Banking Operations, Finance and Control, Analyst/Associate, Tokyo
The IBD Operations Finance and Control team has an opportunity for an experienced Analyst/Associate. The team is responsible for the management of expense balances and fee recovery for the IBD Division globally. This role gives the opportunity to have a direct impact on the P&L of the division by influencing the amount of fees and expenses recovered. This role allows for exposure to senior members of the firm, so you will be using your communication and negotiation skills to drive positive conversations. The role also requires close interaction with other business and Federation teams supporting Investment Banking, including IBD Finance, Controllers, broader Banking Investing and Lending Operations, and Technology. The Analyst/Associate will focus on risk management and control, day to day expense management processes, assisting with the recovery of project expenses, maintaining the syndicate sub ledger, and the settlement of financing transactions.

The Finance & Control Team is responsible for the proper recognition of IBD advisory fees, billing of expenses, settlement of financings, and overall maintenance of the expense balance sheet to create maximum recovery for the division's bottom line. In addition, the team monitors the balance sheet of deal-related expenses to promote recoverability, and seeks to reduce P&L exposure by reserving for losses related to non-recoverable expenses.
