Analyst – Supervision of Support PFS (m/f)


As part of a dedicated team, you will be responsible for the prudential supervision of a portfolio of Support PFS. Support PFS act as subcontractors of operational functions on behalf of financial professionals. They do not therefore carry out financial activities themselves (management and financing activities).  The majority of them offer IT services in the broadest sense of the term. Some Support PFS provide administrative services (back-office services), the communication of financial information to investors, or services for the conservation of digital archives with evidential value. As a result, the potential risks to which the Support PFS expose their clients are more operational than financial.
