Monitoring Analyst job

Monitoring Analyst


The Monitoring Analyst is part of the Trading Compliance team. In this role, you are responsible for optimizing and improving compliance tools and processes, as well as ensuring that the day-to-day trading and business operations meet all regulatory requirements. This includes regulatory reporting, monitoring the trading activities, and handling inquiries from exchanges. A key part of the role is analyzing the trading data, defining new controls, and building tools to automate processes. You will also act as a contact person for the software development teams to ensure that regulatory requirements are properly translated into technical requirements.

What you will do

  • Define and build controls on reporting and monitoring processes, primarily by using Python, SQL and VBA;
  • Analyze trade and order data to provide new insight into trading behaviors;
  • Translate regulatory requirements into technical requirements;
  • Run day-to-day processes to ensure that Flow Traders meets all regulatory reporting obligations (e.g. MiFID II transaction and trade reporting);
  • Review order/trade/transaction reports before submission to the regulator;
  • Manage the implementation process of compliance requirements;
  • Test and verify newly implemented or adjusted tools, systems and controls;
  • Support the implementation of current and new trading rules & regulations;
  • Collect and analyze information for investigations, inquiries and audits, both internal and external;
  • Propose and implement ways to improve day-to-day compliance processes;
  • Document, archive and evidence compliance procedures and processes.

A day in the life of a Monitoring Analyst

In the morning, after having your breakfast and coffee, you start with the first checks of the day (e.g. market making performance, order to trade ratio, order flagging), and attend morning stand-up meetings with the software development teams to get updates on the development progress of new tools. After that, you ensure that the regulatory reports are properly completed and sent out (e.g. transaction reporting, commodity derivative position reporting, EMIR). Lunch, which is prepared in the lounge, is a good opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from other departments. For the rest of the day, you are working on various projects focused on improving compliance processes, as well as handling ad-hoc requests from Trading, Risk, Business Development, or from exchanges and regulators. After the working day, you can head to the gym for a workout or down to the bar to have a drink or play some pool with colleagues.

What you need to succeed

  • University degree in Finance, Business Administration, Computer Science or similar;
  • 2+ years of work experience;
  • Experience with Python, SQL and VBA;
  • Extensive experience with Excel;
  • Understanding of financial products and markets;
  • A proactive learner who is focused on the task, yet flexible and able to prioritize;
  • An independent self-starter with high regard to company policies and regulatory framework;
  • Personality that thrives in a fast-paced environment and fits in an Agile company culture;
  • Excellent attention to detail;
  • Proven analytical skills and the ability to assess complex situations quickly without being affected by (time) pressure;
  • Interest in reporting processes, and the implementation of monitoring and controls;
  • Excellent English communication skills, both spoken and written;
  • Previous regulatory reporting experience is beneficial.
