Job Description

  • Pre Trade Compliance Product Owner, Private Bank
  • New York, NY

JPMorgan Private Bank is a global wealth management leader that delivers the highest quality advice, service, and capabilities to wealth individuals and families in 36 countries around the world. The largest private bank in the U.S. and the third-largest worldwide in terms of total clients assets. JPMorgan Private Bank enjoys relationships with 40% of the individuals on the Forbes Billionaires list.

Our New York office is currently looking for creative and dynamic professionals for its Technology department. The Technology department is part of the Technology & Operations Hub based in New York which services JPMorgan's American private banking business. The Technology department is responsible for application delivery, Business and Operations support & projects.

The position summary:

JPMorgan Private Bank manages over $220B AUM in its domestic Discretionary Investment products for over 125,000 clients. The portfolio management for these accounts is managed on a proprietary global platform called Global Strategic Trading Platform (GSTP). A major component of the GSTP platform is the Pre-Trade Compliance (PTC) Framework that enforces hundreds of bank, regulatory and client restrictions before trading is allowed on each account. It is critical that we have a strong technology Product Owner for our PTC Framework to manage the continual revisions and enhancements derived from new investment product developments and to meet risk and compliance's guidance and requirements.
The Product Owner will be responsible for setting the direction for new functionality within the PTC Framework and partnering with our architects to design the optimal system. The Product Owner should be experienced in risk control projects and have a good understanding of the Asset Management and/or Private Banking business.

The Product Owner should also have strong project management and communication skills and experience managing a product roadmap with multiple stakeholders. In this role the Product Owner will create that product roadmap and will not simply execute individual restrictions prescribed by the business or risk.
The successful candidate will also ensure the successful execution of the various projects under their remit.
