CIB F&BM - Commodities - External Reporting & Legal Entity Controller - Associate
JPMorgan's Global Commodities Group (GCG) business provides risk management solutions, develops investor products and makes markets in metals, energy, and agricultural commodities around the world. The business is focused on serving both corporate clients (producers and consumers of commodities) as well as investor clients, in developing client-driven solutions matched with world-class client service and execution.

Controllers are both business-aligned, with accountability to the respective CFO, and support the overall F&BM organization. Broadly speaking, Controllers are responsible for ensuring the overall integrity and validity of the financial statements and controls over the transaction cycle; performing critical reporting functions for the organization, including legal entity, financial and regulatory, as well as product valuation; and improving ongoing processes, and ensuring execution and implementation of the overall financial architecture.

Controllers are also responsible for financial / management reporting, including providing analytical support to the business CFOs on key topics such as business performance assessment, competitor analysis, annual budgeting and strategic planning; designing, establishing, and maintaining an efficient and effective MIS infrastructure to support delivery of required management information; and disseminating financial information and analysis to CFO groups on areas of key business importance to enable CFOs to support / advise business heads.
