Assistant Vice President, Prime Brokerage Margin (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 11 October 2017
Long hours poor rewards, Incapable management structure. Not enough work force with experience on shore any longer who need to pick up the issues when near and off shore locations fail to meet standards.
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) – Canary Wharf – 5 January 2015
A typical day would start with communicating with my offshore team on outstanding exceptions from prior day, monitoring our allocated Nostro Reconciliation breaks and assisting the team on solutions and communication with Citi Globally. As manager I would be the checker for all FX Exposures being released by our team to the FX Desk, they would be checked for size and P&L. My offshore team would be responsible for 25+ Bank chain legal entities as well as Product Control P&L exposures that flowed through the Broker dealer. Project work was also a key day to day function, from small enhancements to improve automation and efficiency through to more complex projects that would have cost and Risk benefits for the Bank as a whole. There was also End of day procedures and sign offs to ensure all Exposures were flattened, Trader P&L was in line with the ledger (Books and Records) and all exceptions were communicated by us to relevant Depts Management conveyed the importance of career development and encouraged to make the most of all training materials and courses on offer. The key things I took away from my career at Citi was that teamwork, communication, time management and tenacity were key to drive your career forward. The hardest and most rewarding part of the job was linked to Data Analysis, on a Daily and Monthly basis the ledger can be impacted with various handoffs, valid and erroneous, and our role was policing the ledger. At Month end it would be analysing and validating P&L for Western Europe, this involved matching the ledger results to 2 P&L reporting systems, whenmore... it goes wrong, you still have to have full control on validating the results and explaining the differences.less
Great people to work with and training/management opportunities

In a typical day at my work I am involved in a wide range of activities including but not limited to, reconciliations, account documentation reviews, complaints handling , referal point for all members of staff and work delegation,amongst the team. I have learned a great deal in my current role not least diversification of the day and time management. The hardest part of my day is probably liaising with other departments to ensure all duties are carried out accurately and timeously, however this is also the most enjoyable part of my job when successful.
