Internship 2023, Group Compliance Regulatory & Governance

Your role

Do you want to help us protect our reputation, financial health and long-term interests by helping us identify, measure and control risks? You'll:

  • execute routine periodic controls in line with global and local control frameworks, including regional regulatory requirements where applicable
  • analyze and assess risks arising from both the business and support functions
  • identify and evaluate the design, implementation and effectiveness of controls designed to address those risks
  • document and communicate review findings, root causes and risks
  • develop recommendations for items that solution owners should consider when finalizing their action plans
  • successfully collaborate with peers in and across Monitoring, Surveillance and Control teams

Your team

You will be working in Monitoring, Surveillance and Controls (MS&C) in Hong Kong / Singapore. MS&C is an independent function within the 2nd line of defense, that supports Group Compliance, Regulatory and Governance (GCRG) in achieving its strategic, operational, financial and compliance objectives. MS&C monitors business activities in relation to compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies including Cross-border activities, Investment Suitability, Know Your Customer (KYC), Conflicts of Interest, amongst others. MS&C also works in close cooperation with other GCRG teams such as Financial Crime Prevention, Business Aligned Compliance etc.

Diversity helps us grow, together. That’s why we are committed to fostering and advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. It strengthens our business and brings value to our clients.

Your expertise

You need to be graduating by July 2024, and with less than two years of work experience. It doesn’t matter what you’re studying. (Really, it doesn’t.) But we’d like to see evidence that you can:

  • analyze a problem, take a view and come to a decision
  • plan, organize and communicate well
  • make things happen
  • stick with a task
  • work independently as well as in a team
  • speak and write fluently in English, Mandarin.

The following skills would certainly be an added advantage:

  • familiarity with data analytics or business intelligence tools (e.g. Power BI, Alteryx)
  • fluency in Japanese and Cantonese.

Perhaps you’ve organized a fundraising event or taken part in team sports? Or persevered and passed an exam in a subject you found challenging? Think about how things you’ve achieved match the skills we’re after.

Your Program

On this 10-week summer program, you’ll be a real part of the team, working with our experts and learning about the industry, our clients, our firm and a specific area of it. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to develop new skills and make contacts. And if you impress us, we might invite you to join our Graduate Talent Program once you’ve graduated.

You may only apply for one program in one country within Asia Pacific during the same academic year.
