Job Background and Purpose:

Citi as the leading global bank is present in 100+ countries, 16 of which are in Asia. In each of these countries the Central Banks and other financial regulatory bodies require the timely and accurate reporting of prudential requirements and other monetary statistics.

Citi in Asia is rolling out RegInsight for Local Regulatory Reporting (“LRR”) using a standardized and automated approach. A few Asia countries have started to implement RegInsight and more countries will follow in the years ahead.

In order to execute the implementation programs in a more efficient manner, Citi is setting up a centralized team in Asia to support the Asia country programs and the reporting processes. The centralized team members will be mostly based in Manila, which is one of the strategic sites of Citi Finance for US Reporting, and will work closely with representatives in the Asia countries such as Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and India in meeting the countries’ reporting obligations to their specific regulators.
