Job Category: Asset Management
Job Description:


J.P. Morgan Asset & Wealth Management, with client assets of $2.4 trillion, is a global leader in investment and wealth management. Its clients include institutions, high-net-worth individuals and retail investors in every major market throughout the world. The division offers investment management across all major asset classes including equities, fixed income, alternatives, multi-asset and money market funds. For individual investors, the business also provides retirement products and services, brokerage and banking services including trusts and estates, loans, mortgages and deposits.

Group Description:

Within Wealth Management (WM), the Global Controls Management (GCM) organization’s primary function is to (i) ensure a sustainable and disciplined end-to-end control environment for WM; (ii) identify and escalate issues with a sense of urgency; and, (iii) partner with the business to ensure timely remediation of issues.

Global Controls Management works in partnership with the business, as the first line of defense. The team assists in immediate, real time critical control issue detection, escalation, root cause analysis and remediation. In addition, the team works in collaboration with all other control functions – Compliance, Risk, Audit, and Legal.  

Team Description:

The Regional Testing & Oversight (RT&O) primary function is to oversee & support WM EMEA Front Office based activities & execution against a number of core firmwide Risk & Control based programmes with coverage spanning all European based Legal Entities. These include :-

  • RCSA (Risk & Control Self-Assessment) Program. The RCSA Program is a firm wide initiative which ensures that each Line of Business (LOB) evaluates core controls aligned to the business areas they support, assesses the risks associated with the end to end lifecycle and reports on design & operating effectiveness.
  • NBIA (New Business Initiative Assessment). A New Business Initiative “NBI” that requires NBIA review is the introduction of a new, expanded or changed product, service or related activity provided to clients or customers. All LOB’s and functions are required to adequately risk assess and approve new business initiatives (NBI) that potentially alter the Firm’s risk profile. The failure to identify and manage the introduction of new initiatives can expose the Firm to financial loss and strategic, reputational, regulatory, operational damage.

Each LOB must have an NBIA Program that complies with the Firmwide NBIA Policy and meets the Firmwide NBIA Standards. The programs must provide the necessary governance and procedures to review all relevant risks and controls, track conditions until closure, and demonstrate that the NBI is launched in a controlled manner.

In addition to RCSA & NBIA the team performs several other key Oversight & Control BAU related tasks such as support and review of Audit or Regulator based exams, Issue Identification and timely remediation and also participates in any new Firmwide O&C initiatives when appropriate (e.g. OLO - Office of Legal Obligations) Program.

The Wealth Management in the UK / EMEA is looking to hire a Associate or Vice President to join the London-based Control Officers responsible for owning and managing all of the aforementioned tasks in partnership with the Business and other core functional areas.
