Full time

Help take risk out of our way.

  • Major in Compliance or related field (e.g. Law) preferred, but students from other streams with a solid understanding of or keen interest in the financial industry are welcome to apply

Why Us?

The APAC Compliance & Operational Risk (COR) team is at the core of the Bank's cultural values and a key component of our risk management discipline. The COR team mitigates against Compliance risk - the risk of legal or regulatory sanctions, material financial loss or damage to the reputation of the company arising from the failure of the company to comply with the requirements of jurisdictional laws, rules, regulations (LRRs); and Operational risk - the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems, or external events. The Bank's COR Program is the comprehensive set of systematic practices instituted by the company to ensure that applicable LRR requirements are being met and operational risk is being appropriately managed.


The APAC COR team performs two primary roles: 1) being trusted partners to the front line, helping interpret written laws, rules and regulations (LRR) and regulatory expectations, and 2) performing the ''check and challenge'' on the front line practices and processes to ensure the Bank is fully compliant at all times. The COR team is critical since it helps front line staff perform their role of generating business through a much wider lens that encompasses the Bank's risk appetite, leverages global best practices and focuses on compliant growth while doing it independently from the front lines. We are the ''second pair of eyes'' in sharing the core responsibility of mitigating regulatory, reputational, and other risks.


What you'll do:


  • Work with and learn from the HK Country COR team on matters and regulatory issues relevant to the entities based in Hong Kong from a Country perspective.
  • Work with and learn from one or more regional Front Line Unit (FLU) Compliance teams - for example, Research, Investment Banking, Equity, FICC, etc - on matters specific to these line/s of business, not only from a Country perspective, but also from an Asia point of view.
  • Work with and learn from one or more Enterprise Compliance teams based in HK - for example, Registrations & Licensing, Associate Investment Management etc - on matters that are relevant to the whole Enterprise, cutting across lines of business both regionally, and in some instances, globally.
  • You will conduct data analysis, project management, policy analysis and research in an effort to build a strong GCOR holistic foundation & understanding. As part of this role, there will be constant engagement with multiple parties at the Bank, including front-line leaders, regulators, Legal counterparts, control functions etc.
