Our division prevents, detects and mitigates compliance, regulatory and reputational risk across the firm and helps to strengthen the firm’s culture of compliance. Compliance accomplishes these through the firm’s enterprise-wide compliance risk management program. As an independent control function and part of the firm’s second line of defense, Compliance assesses the firm’s compliance, regulatory and reputational risk; monitors for compliance with new or amended laws, rules and regulations; designs and implements controls, policies, procedures and training; conducts independent testing; investigates, surveils and monitors for compliance risks and breaches; and leads the firm’s responses to regulatory examinations, audits and inquiries. You'll be part of a team with members from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, such as law, accounting, sales, and trading. We look for those who possess sound judgment, curiosity, and are able to adapt to a changing regulatory landscape.
Financial Crime Compliance
Financial Crime Compliance ("FCC") coordinates Goldman Sachs' enterprise-wide anti-money laundering (AML), economic sanctions, e-communications and anti-bribery compliance efforts. FCC consists of the global Anti-Money Laundering-Suspicious Activities Group, the Anti-Bribery Group, the Government Sanctions Group, the Electronic Communications Surveillance Group and Forensics Group. The combined FCC team, which is composed of professionals with extensive law enforcement, regulatory, legal, compliance, forensic consulting, operations and business experience, administers an array of surveillances, due diligence, investigative expertise and other control processes designed to identify potential money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery, securities fraud and other violations of law. The Forensics Group is the central investigation unit of FCC and coordinates with others across the firm to identify and mitigate areas of risk.
The current opportunity supports the Firm's expansion of the Global Markets division and many aspects of the role will involve the integration of recently acquired businesses and the expansion of existing businesses. FCC is seeking an Associate/Vice President for a compliance role with experience in the development, implementation and design of transaction monitoring controls to identify potential money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, insider trading, certain forms of market manipulation and other forms of misconduct. The Associate/Vice President will be responsible for helping to manage and develop compliance projects and initiatives and will be responsible for performing data analysis, liaising with compliance and business groups to determine system and surveillance requirements, and drafting technology specifications.
The ideal candidate will have strong analytical skills, the ability to collaborate with others, the ability to manage projects and processes, and the ability to multi-task. In this role, the Associate/Vice President will work closely with compliance, operations, technology and business personnel, and would be expected to quickly gain an understanding of the firm's business lines and the rules and regulations under which the firm operates.
