UBS Financial Services Name Screening Specialist in Zürich, Switzerland

Your role:

The Global Searches Solution Team within Financial Crime and Conduct Risk is responsible for ensuring the day-to-day operational effectiveness of the Bank’s primary AML / KYC system. The system is used globally to check the names of new customers, partners, vendors, and employees against AML relevant names, for example sanctioned parties, PEPs (Politically Exposed Persons), and names of parties included on other national and international regulatory lists.

The role involves a varied range of tasks, including:

• Qualification of hit-lists generated by the AML / KYC name-search solution

• Analyzing hits to determine if they are AML-relevant and require follow-up

• Coordinate inquiries on a global level to gather case relevant information to support risk assessment decisions

• Assess and review data maintained in the AML / KYC system and support defining processes and operating models.

Some of your tasks and responsibilities are well defined and easy to understand so that you are quickly up and running to qualify hits and take respective follow up actions. Others require detailed introduction and training before you are enabled to manage your tasks and provide the expected results according to priorities. Every day brings new and interesting challenges.
