The Data & Distribution team supports the delivery of fund data (dynamic and static) to external data platforms and clients. The team is also responsible for regulatory reporting (AIFMD, Form PF, CPO-PQR), UCITS KIID production, AEOI documentation (FATCA/CRS), European investor tax reporting and other regulatory reporting including Mifid2 Cost & Charges.

The focus of the role is to support the team across these areas by utilising internal reporting tools & Python to build automated solutions & controls to drive efficiency, reduce risk & deliver better service to our clients & the business.

Responsibility will also include support and oversight of all fund data - through regulatory reporting & managing the delivery & accuracy of fund data on external platforms. There will also be a need to provide operational support for future projects the team works on.


  • Technical expert on data management - using combination of internal reporting tools & Python code to build & deploy solutions to assist the team either through task automation or enhanced controls
  • Fund Data oversight - ensuring that data platforms, regulatory reporting and third party service providers have accurate & timely fund static & dynamic data
  • Applying technical skills to support the team in other work streams as required (Costs & Charges, PRIIPS, AIFMD, Form-PF & CPO-PQR)
  • Working collaboratively across operations to help share & foster knowledge and representing the team at technical & project meetings when required

The Data & Distribution team supports the operational delivery of fund static and dynamic data, tax and regulatory reporting. We are one of the few teams that interacts across the group, working with stakeholders at various levels. As such the role offers a great opportunity for the individual to work and develop their knowledge in these areas with exposure to many areas of the business. The team has recently began an initiative to deploy Python across work streams and is looking to build upon early success in this area.
