Position Purpose

Within the Capital Market Transversal Operation of BNP Paribas CIB, the Global Client Service team objective is to provide our clients with a top of the range service and ensure a dedicated follow up of business continuity.

Regulatory regimes imply material changes in our internal ways of working and in the relations with clients, due to the extent of the scope at stake

·        Multiple regulations across the globe: Europe (such as EMIR), U.S. (such as Dodd Frank Act, FATCA) and several jurisdictions in Asia Pacific (e.g. in Hong Kong)

·        Extra-territoriality

·        Various and heterogeneous requirements such as timely confirmation, trade reporting, mandatory clearing / margining, distribution to Equity Research to Major US Institutional Investors only

·        All types of clients (Institutional, Corporates, Central Banks, Hedge Funds) impacted

·        All BNP Paribas entities (such as non-European subsidiaries) must comply with their own obligations

Tax legislations (such as the Hire Act in the US or the CRS standards committed by OECD countries) are on the agenda and require an extensive client classification exercise along with a potential regulatory procedural obligation.

All those regulatory requirements bring about an intensive client communication to (i) informing & educating our clients on regulations BNP Paribas is subject to, (ii) undertaking procedural exercises, when needed, to comply with our regulatory obligations and (iii) informing the clients about the impacts on our business relationship with them should BNP Paribas fail to comply with its own obligation.

An intensive internal coordination is also required to educate the Business representatives (Global Market and Coverage) about the regulatory framework, the impacts on their clients and the relevant contigency action plan.

The Client Management Regulations APAC team is also closely collaborating with other functions looking after regulatory affairs such as Legal, Compliance, Project Management, IT, Finance, Due Diligence and both Global Market Regulatory Affairs and Global Market Business Management.

The Client Management Regulations team is client facing, responsible for client communication related to regulatory changes resulting from MIFID 2, EMIR (European Market Infrastructure Regulation), the Dodd-Frank Act in the US, other OTC derivatives regulatory regimes (including those pursuant to HKMA and MAS rules), tax-related legislations (e.g. FATCA and AEOI [Automatic Exchange of Information]), Equity Research enablement, among others. All this need to be addressed diligently due to the very important stakes; indeed, not being compliant in due time could result trading disruption, loss in firm’s reputation and regulatory breach.
