Group Overview

The Front Office Global Markets Client Integration group (GMCI) exists to help protect Sales from regulatory risk by monitoring client-related regulations and implementing a range of controls and metrics to ensure that rules are being followed. The group helps implement new regulations, work with Legal and Compliance (LCD) to translate and operationalize the law, and executing (or supporting other groups) the various activities required for each client to ensure compliance. In order to do this, GMRI has significant analytic capability, tying together data from multiple domains to provide prioritized lists of clients together with compliance status. The group works very closely with Client Onboarding (COB), which moves clients from "prospect" to "customer" in the shortest possible time. GMCI provides guidance to COB for any pre-trade compliance requirements, and modifies the client onboarding tool, CMS.
