Together with the business products teams and specialists in the bank, the legal team assist in the offer of a wide range of products and trading activities tailored to the needs of the bank's GWM clients in APAC. As an experienced product lawyer, you will be a trusted advisor to the business by delivering best-in-class transaction support on legal and regulatory matters to effectively manage our legal risk.

Together for the goals
#TOGETHERBAND raises awareness about the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 through 17 uniquely colored bracelets. Each pack contains two individually packaged bands: one to wear and one to share so you can spread the word about what goal matters most to you and give someone else the opportunity to do the same. The production and money raised from the sales of these bands will help fight injustices such as poverty and gender inequality as well as climate change and unfair labor.

Right now, #TOGETHERBAND is helping to support emergency COVID-19 relief. For the month of April, our partners at #TOGETHERBAND have created TOGETHER FUND to help fight the pandemic and provide aid to those who need it most.
