The Futures Division, within our Commodities and Global Markets Group, has created a new, exciting opportunity for a Divisional Client Risk Manager to assist with  the effective management of our client exposure management, reporting and the risk framework that underpins its management. This position will report directly to the Global Head of Futures and liaise with senior management from across the Group. 

This is an excellent opportunity to join the Futures team who have operated in global futures markets for more than 30 years, providing a full range of execution, clearing and financing solutions to corporate and institutional clients as well as providing continuous 24-hour coverage of all major markets globally.

  • structuring and implementing risk mitigation strategies for client exposures
  • liaising with the Risk Management Group, Commodities Global Markets Central and other stakeholders on client credit risk issues.

You will need to possess experience from working within a Risk Management function in an Investment/Institutional Bank and possess a strong understanding of the Futures and Options financial markets.

With an analytical mindset and an ability to identify potential risks, whilst being able to effectively manage a broad range of stakeholders, you will need to be comfortable in building effective networks with senior leadership teams. The ability to convey complex information in a simplified format when required will also set you up for success within the role.
