About Us

Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 60 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

We are transitioning to a hybrid work environment where both remote work and the office play a critical role. Our vision is a future where all employees are empowered to work flexibly to drive the best outcomes for our clients. Flexible work is a mindset and a core value. Our employees are encouraged to work remotely two days a week as a standard practice and will have flexibility in terms of working hours.

About the Role

As part of the InvesTech group, the OTC Derivatives Analyst position will be primarily responsible for supporting the OTC settlement and post-execution lifecycle event process for all OTC derivative products. This will encompass exception-based management of the trade capture workflow, lifecycle event processing, multiple daily reconciliations, and new product implementation for all OTC derivative activity across a suite of applications. The individual will continually look for opportunities to create efficiencies within these tasks through workflow enhancements and technology. The individual will work daily with our Brokers, Trading and Technology teams to ensure timely trade capture in multiple internal systems, processing of lifecycle events (rate resets, account openings, etc.) and resolution of reconciliation issues. The individual position will also work closely with our outsourced partner, State Street IMS West.

The OTC Derivatives Analyst will be responsible for monitoring and processing the life cycle events (settlements, corporate actions) of OTC Derivatives trades.

While the individual will work in a team-oriented environment, many projects will be self-directed, often under intense deadline pressures.

--- Serve as a resource for internal teams handling OTC derivative-related queries and audit requests from clients and their agents

--- Processing exceptional events that impact OTC derivatives positions, including credit events, corporate actions, and client transitions

--- Continuously identifying opportunities for improvement

QUALIFICATIONS
