Pertula Bernard – FDM Regulation Data Analyst, HSBC
“As a Regulation Data Analyst at HSBC, time management is everything. I support various teams within the banking sector when it comes to the remediation, analysis and review of client data as well as researching and validating client account structures and making necessary changes within the system. These requests are often time sensitive based on the clients’ trading activity. Being able to prioritize and execute in a timely manner is essential.
