Senior Regulatory Transaction Reporting Officer (Data) - guarding our license to operate

At a glance

The world of regulatory transaction reporting is developing rapidly. Therefore we need to be innovative in order to have ABN AMRO Clearing Bank’s house in control, thus preventing fines and guarding our license to operate. How do you think this can be achieved? Do you enjoy analyzing data, coming up with structural improvements and make a difference, working closely together with other departments? Do you want to develop yourself professionally and personally? We are looking forward to hearing your story.

Your job

Regulatory Transaction Reporting Desk (RTRD) performs legal analysis (e.g. MiFID II/MiFIR, EMIR, CSDR, SFTR). You help set the business requirements and apply our control framework. You perform periodic content check of sent reports (i.e. data analysis). After a solution has been built, you verify the data-driven system changes. RTRD receives daily monitoring results of the sent reports to the Regulatory Authorities, which you will monitor. This includes analysis of the dashboards for irregularities. Therefore it is important that you understand the business processes.

You ensure completeness, accuracy and timeliness of sent reports to the Regulatory Authorities, in close cooperation with other departments. This includes ensuring proper controls and documentation are in place. We act as a linking-pin within the organisation, between internal stakeholders – such as the departments, which perform the activities that impact the sent reports, and senior management – and external stakeholders, such as Regulators, Exchanges and CCP’s.

You educate (i.e. workshops/presentations) and advise (i.e. improve controls) our stakeholders with regards to the regulatory transaction- and position reporting requirements. Next to that, the (RTRD) acts as single point of contact to senior management and regulatory authorities, for which you provide input.

Your working environment

You play a crucial role in preventing ABN AMRO Clearing Bank (AACB) of being in breach, creating awareness and encouraging ownership throughout the organization. You are part of a small driven team, ensuring a sustainable way of working, guarding AACB’s license to operate and preventing fines.

On a daily basis your work is diverse and has a big impact. The RTRD is responsible for ensuring auditable compliance of AACB’s submitted transaction reports to the Regulatory Authorities (AFM/DNB/SRO’s). As we understand what the role of the departments in the reporting process is – and thus oversee the reporting landscape – we provide input for structural improvements. You contribute to a solid foundation for transaction- and position reporting, challenge the current approach and act as a change driver. We believe we can make a difference by encouraging a sustainable way of working. Thus, we want to innovate. For example, we have created a control framework and strive to use artificial intelligence in order to improve data quality.

AACB holds significant market shares in financial markets across the globe, holding top spots in clearing on all important exchanges in every region, clearing anything between 20 to 30 million trades per day. AACB has a global focus and is divided into three regional organizations: Europe, USA and Asia-Pacific.

You are flexible and know how to prioritize in an international and dynamic environment. You are pro-active, have a “lively” and social personality and enjoy the challenge of winning people over and encouraging change.
