POSITION
The Derivative Operations Analyst is part of the InvesTech Operations department.

  • Processing exceptional events that impact OTC derivatives positions, including credit events, corporate actions, and client transitions.
  • Continuously identifying opportunities for improvement and assist in implementing necessary changes
