Business Analyst
The UTM Team is looking for a Business Analyst to join their team. The UTM (Unified Trade and Transaction Model) is the logical representation of data required to support the Trade and Transaction Event Management business capability. The primary intent is to standardize the data representation of trades and transactions across corporate and investment banking for all asset classes. It is to be used to develop interface definitions across applications.

Goals:
Working alongside our data modelers, the Business Analyst will define across the range of corporate and investment bank products:
  • The entities and attributes necessary to provide a business definition of each product
  • How a trade will be represented at each stage in its lifecycle
  • Ensure that the same concept is modelled in the same way across the corporate and investment bank and prevent unnecessary divergence
  • Facilitate input from Operations and other line of business teams to ensure the model is grounded in the reality of business products and how they are processed

Responsibilities:
  • Data mapping and requirements gathering
  • Model evaluation with primary users and user groups
  • Production of clean and concise documentation
  • The Business Analyst will lead workshops engaging modelers and the business to agree modelling per product
  • Lead review sessions that ensure consistency of modelling across the Corporate and Investment Bank
  • The Business Analyst will not be directly authoring UML models, but will need to engage with their detail - ensuring specific entities and attributes are defined and used consistently and appropriately
  • Perform sampling and analysis of data and usage across critical applications

What we are looking for:
  • FpML knowledge, preferably across a broad range of Derivatives, Securities, and FX products
  • Business knowledge of a broad range of products and their lifecycles
  • Detailed analytical approach; logical, precise thinker; clear and concise communications
  • Clear understanding of data concepts (relational data) and ability to read a data model (using Erwin or MagicDraw)
