Purpose of the Job

The Custody team is an important team of 6 within our Operations Department. The key activity is to manage the processes related to transfer of assets into our business when clients join and transfer of assets out of our business when clients exit.  The efficient and speedy transfer is essential if we are to give new clients a lasting positive impression of our business. These processes are regulated activities and are therefore subject to tight controls. You will begin by developing your knowledge of how transfers in and out are initiated and take responsibility for this aspect.  This will involve liaising with our client advisors, counterparties and custodians.  This role will involve communication with several other teams within Operations therefore exposing you to other elements of a client’s journey. As your knowledge and understanding grow you will be responsible for further elements of the process.  You will learn about various investment products, including equities and bonds, funds of various types and the processing of Individual Savings Accounts (ISA’s) and how transfers are processed.  External training courses will also be available as well as training by some of our Subject Matter Experts (SME’s).
