I am working with a global financial institution on a Director level role within their asset servicing team. You will have responsibility for global custody documentation and certain depositary related issues, settlement and ancillary matters across different markets and asset classes including crypto and digital assets.
The position involves reviewing and advising on:
Global Custody and Depositary Agreements and associated documentation;
Documents relating to other services provided by the asset servicing and digital business;
Strategic project and product development work;
Assisting the business on regulatory issues where necessary, including maintaining an awareness and understanding of existing and proposed regulatory requirements, trends and best practices in EMEA and where applicable, the US, and assisting the business in maintaining an appropriate profile with industry groups and others on key issues;
Leading on legal negotiations and advising business colleagues, including at senior levels.
The ideal candidate will have at least 8 years of experience with post trade issues, custody matters and regulations such as CASS, MIFID, AIFMD and UCITS. Exposure to digital assets would be beneficial but not essential. You should be comfortable working at a senior level and advising senior stakeholders in the business.
