The position offers the candidate an opportunity to work closely with senior individuals at leading investment banks, help shape the debate on critical regulatory reforms, and promote efficient and effective European capital markets.
You will manage and run working groups (WGs) comprised of subject matter experts appointed by our member firms and drive cross-industry collaboration around a range of CCA and TO themes. The role will be split 2/3 – 1/3 between the CCA and TO divisions, with some flexibility depending on priorities over time.
With CCA, you will be responsible for supporting the objectives of the AFME Compliance Committee and WGs. These cover all aspects of compliance, control, and conduct relating to EU and UK market regulation, including how the control function changes in a remote/hybrid working environment, the expectations of the European and National Competent Authorities, and the developing regulatory landscape. In particular, the Associate Director will be responsible for leading the corporate governance workstream and running topic-specific member WGs, such as the Senior Manager Regime WG, the Remuneration WG, the Corporate Governance Drafting Group, and the LIBOR Conduct Risk WG.
With TO, you will be responsible for supporting the Director to deliver initiatives and advocacy objectives on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Cloud Computing in capital markets. The initiatives will include developing responses to EU and national public consultations and legislative proposals and executing advocacy plans towards a wide range of regulatory officials and industry stakeholders.
The role will also require identifying and delivering industry-specific projects to increase awareness, and promote best practices, for adopting AI and Cloud Computing in capital markets (for example, reports, member roundtables, and public events).
Within AFME you can expect to collaborate with teams from our other policy divisions: these include Equities, Fixed Income, FX, Prudential Regulation and Post-Trade. You will also have a dotted line relationship with colleagues in our Advocacy team.
You can also expect to work closely with our Media, Events and Advocacy teams, public policy professionals at our member firms, representatives from European institutions and regulators, and representatives from other trade associations, including AFME’s sister associations SIFMA and ASIFMA based in New York and Hong Kong, respectively as well as other industry associations.
