We translate our rather complex Wholesale Banking business activities into financial records in line with the latest regulatory and tax requirements. We coordinate the implementation of changes to our record keeping definitions, systems and processes in the Finance domain. The demand  for these changes can come from two angles [1] new or changed products/business lines and 2] Tax Authorities and Central Banks. Both angles trigger / urge us to reconsider and to adjust the way we account for.

You will support the delivery of strategic programs from a COO Finance perspective.
