What does Finance do?
Curious what the Finance function does at an investment bank? Here are Taylor and Mark to explain.
Finance is a global division that has a huge amount of influence within the investment bank. The team’s focus on reporting and control means they are closely involved in ensuring the investment bank operates within different countries’ regulations, alongside other teams such as Legal, Compliance and Operations.
Working as part of a team so closely connected to international networks means you’ll get exposure across the investment bank. You’ll build strong relationships internally and have a direct impact on how the front office business performs, from a financial perspective, by spotting inefficiencies and finding solutions. Success depends on more than numerical abilities; you must be able to analyze data and draw conclusions with relevance to the wider business and then communicate them effectively.
