What’s it all about?

The Treasury is the bank’s central hub through which its complex cash flows are managed, exposures to market movements are controlled, investment decisions are made, and the trajectory of the business is steered such that it meets its regulatory requirements and delivers value to investors. The Treasury Analyst is also responsible for all the bank’s activities in the Wholesale markets and is required to be a centre for control and excellence.

The Treasury Analyst assists in the day to day running of the bank, primarily ensuring compliance with regulatory and internal requirements for liquidity and interest rate risk, and provision of timely and accurate reporting to senior management of relevant risk exposures. In addition, the Treasury Analyst assists in the preparation of reporting for Atom’s Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS) programme and third party lending partnerships. The role holder also assists in the preparation of papers for ALCO, Board, and the Executive.

This role reports to the Head of Treasury but engages regularly with senior management across the business, and Finance in particular.
