Position overview:

MSCI has established a new team, Regulatory Process and Procedures Management (RPPM) that will have primary responsibility for the management of processes and controls that relate to new and evolving regulatory compliance requirements.  RPPM team works closely with the firm’s Legal department, but it is run independently from Legal.  RPPM also works closely with Internal Audit and Risk Management, but again, it is a distinct function in the firm.
In addition to overseeing ongoing regulatory compliance processes and procedures, the RPPM team is also responsible for the overall Project and Program Management of initiatives for implementing new compliance and control capabilities.  This includes the following:
Project organization and planning
Project execution management, including issue identification and resolution


The Regulatory Compliance Project Manager will be responsible for the following:
  • Project organization and planning
  • Working with Legal and various functional (Technology, Data, Product Management, Research, etc.) areas to develop project execution plans based on an interpretation of a regulatory requirement:
  • Develop phased project execution with milestones and deliverables
  • Identify resource requirements and constraints; establish project budget
  • Identify and incorporate deadlines imposed by the regulations
  • Identify and address interdependencies with other projects or prerequisites
  • Identify areas of uncertainty and address
  • Establish clear ownership
  • Project execution management
  • Working across functional/organizational lines, put in place the necessary governance and control processes to provide transparency and alignment, resulting in successful implementation:
  • Establish project governance through steering committee or other appropriate mechanism
  • Provide meaningful ongoing status reporting and escalation of execution issues
  • Work with all involved parties to anticipate, identify and resolve obstacles as necessary
  • Coordinate with other project managers who may own the delivery of specific components of an overall project
  • Demonstrate first hand understanding of project progress and issues by being closely involved throughout project lifecycle; acting as reporter is not sufficient
  • Identify and address areas of potential execution weakness such as unclear accountability, poor specifications, inadequate testing, etc.
  • Follow-through to final stages of delivery, including documentation and production support
Note that projects may include an applications development dimension.  But in some cases, a project may be focused on any of the following:
  • The development of a policy or other document
  • The design and implementation of a new process and control
  • The performance of some analysis or investigation
  • Execution of an internal audit/inspection

Desired experience and qualifications:
Minimum of 8 years of directly relevant work experience including some or all of the following:
  • Application Development
  • Business Analysis
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Risk Management
  • Accounting / Audit experience
  • Familiarity with specific regulatory regimes of IOSCO, EU BMR and GDPR would be useful but not essential. 
  • Experience with Risk Management concepts and tools such as Risk and Control Matrix (RACM) is helpful.
  • Experience with document management software is helpful.
Experience and/or certification in project management skills and tools is strongly valued in candidates:
  • Microsoft Project
  • CA-PPM
  • PMP certification
Due to the great number of applications we receive for each of our open vacancies, we are unable to respond on an individual basis.
