Interactive Brokers is looking for a Financial Analyst into the Trade Surveillance group for its Budapest office, IBCE. These Analysts will review and analyze trading activity of the firm’s customers to identify potential breaches of market conduct rules or market related financial crime. IBKR does not use vendor solutions, rather it builds its own proprietary surveillance capability, leveraging its historical proprietary trading background. The IBCE surveillance role, therefore, offers interesting work and challenges, and opportunities for deep dive investigations versus the mass false positive alert processing roles offered in many financial institutions.

Ensuring appropriate and timely alert management, following standards for closure or escalation

Assisting with written responses to inquiries from the MNB, other European regulators or exchanges regarding trading activity by IBCE customers
Liaising with global colleagues to ensure all impacted legal entities are informed of suspicious activity and working closely with the AML team
Qualification & Skills
Background in customer trading surveillance preferred
Strong product knowledge of equity or exchange traded derivative markets’ or, preferably, both
Solid academic background
Solid knowledge of EU market conduct rules and market regulations
High degree of comfort with computers and technology, and understanding of how technology is applied to business and regulatory problems;
Ability to work in a small-team and fast-paced environment; and to work independently and to multi-task with minimal supervision
Strong analytical thinking and attention to detail
