EMEA Clearing Business Manager - Vice President

Location:Greater London
Job Type:Full Time

Key aspects of the role:

The EMEA Clearing business faces the additional challenge of the current European regulatory environment and delivering the post-Brexit framework. The business has been impacted by how it faces EEA clients when the UK loses passporting rights and in addition, has taken new memberships of EEA financial market infrastructure. The EMEA business has therefore now expanded to conduct business out of two main Legal entities i.e. J.P. Morgan Securities Ltd. and JP Morgan AG.

Additionally, there also significant increased regulatory focus on clearinghouses (e.g. through national competent authority supervision, recovery and resolution, JPM’s risk management framework etc). J.P. Morgan needs to respond and increase resources available in this area.
