Job Description

CONFLICTS RESOLUTION GROUP

The Conflicts Resolution Group (CRG) evaluates a wide range of the firm’s business activities, including advisory, financing, principal investing, lending and certain other activities, in order to identify, assess, and manage actual or perceived conflicts of interest resulting from the firm’s new and existing roles, positions, and responsibilities, as well as reputational risks. CRG determines from a conflicts of interest perspective whether the revenue businesses may continue to pursue a transaction (subject to further review by CRG and other control functions and committees) and may impose limitations or conditions which are monitored by CRG. In doing so, the CRG helps to protect the firm’s client relationships, safeguard confidential information, mitigate reputational risk, and ensure that we are able to fulfill our responsibilities to clients prior to accepting a role and over the course of our engagement.

A role in CRG offers an exceptional opportunity for professional development for a person interested in financial markets and firmwide business activities, offering a steep learning curve and exposure to real-time internal decision-making around the firm’s positioning with respect to live market opportunities – across all industries.
