Banks are subject to certain regulations and requirements that aim to uphold the integrity of the ﬁnancial system. Financial institutions are regulated by governments to disclose and handle their capital in a certain way. The categorisation of assets and capital is highly standardised so that it can be risk weighted.
A number of recent high proﬁle ﬁnancial scandals have raised both the proﬁle and importance of areas which control the reporting of information to external bodies. Financial services companies are legislated by a variety of bodies, including the Central Bank of Ireland and the ISE.
The role provides excellent exposure to all areas of the bank, including product control, ﬁnancial control, treasury, operations, IT, front ofﬁce, legal and credit risk.
What does the role involve?
As a regulatory analyst you will play a critical role maintaining the integrity of the ﬁnancial system. Regulatory reporting is normally split into three separate areas:
- Capital adequacy (banks allocation of capital for regulatory purposes)
- Large and counterparty exposure risk (concentration of risk to certain groupings e.g. industries or counterparties)
- Central Bank reporting
Why choose regulatory reporting?
Regulatory reporting is a blend of ﬁnancial control, product control and risk reporting. You will gain a very good general grounding of a bank’s products without having to specialise.
The role provides excellent exposure to all areas of the bank, including product control, ﬁnancial control, treasury, operations, IT, front ofﬁce, legal and credit risk. As such, it is a good entry route into ﬁnancial services. You can also gain promotion within this area and become a senior level regulatory professional or work for the Regulator.
