A sub-function of Compliance, Financial Crime Threat Mitigation (FC) is HSBC's industry-leading, global capability to identify, analyse, and investigate financial crime risk proactively, effectively, and efficiently, and ensure proper mitigation of these risks. FC harnesses intelligence, analytics, technology, investigation, information sharing, and public-private partnership to achieve this end. FC is building HSBC's Intelligence-Led Financial Crime Risk Management (ILFCRM) approach to enable the bank to make a step change in the way it identifies and manages financial crime risk by leveraging data using advanced analytics and artificial intelligence.

The team investigates all suspicious activity across multiple financial crime types, and this can involve dealing with issues for which there is no clear-cut solution whilst still being able to apply judgment. Where items of major consequence are involved, reference is made to the Team Lead or the Global Head of Complex Investigations.

The role-holder will oversee triaging, collect data points from other parts of the business (as required) to ensure smooth running of live validation, and capture necessary MI to produce metrics required to assess if DRA is indicative of customer risk. The role holder will also assist in filing UARs, raising RFIs, refining investigations processes, and participate briefing very senior stakeholders in the business and within FCR.

The jobholder will continually reassess the operational risks associated with the role and inherent in the business, taking account of changing financial crimes threats, geopolitical, economic or market conditions, legal and regulatory requirements, operating procedures and practices, management restructurings, and the impact of new technology. Monitor in accordance with the Principal Accountabilities set out above.

The jobholder will ensure the fair treatment of our customers is at the heart of everything we do, both personally and as an organization.

There is no exact specification for the jobholder. However, desirable experience includes, but is not limited to, the following:
  • Experience within regulatory, investigative, or financial intelligence agencies
  • Strong understanding of indicators of financial crime risk
  • Experience in casework management including processes such as triage, prioritisation, and capturing MI
  • Experience of writing pertinent, high quality reports, identifying key information findings required for MI
  • A proven track record of seeking out opportunities for innovation and driving and delivering change for continuous improvement and efficiency
  • Analytically minded
  • Understanding of the current regulatory environment and expectations, relevant regulations, codes, and HSBC Group Standards, as well as their underlying purpose to mitigate risk to the financial system and provide information useful for the public sector to provide law enforcement and security
  • Accountable, independent and able to work in a new and fluid environment
  • Interest and aptitude to understand the workings of transaction rules and new tools
