MarkitSERV Product Management Associate Director - Tokyo
Department overview:

MarkitSERV provides end-to-end trade processing and workflow solutions that support all participants in OTC trading from post-trade notices of execution, trade confirmation and allocations to clearing and reporting.

Ongoing OTC market structure changes are altering the way the industry operates, creating an intricate web of connectivity, data management and trade processing requirements. Rapid growth in new trading, reporting and clearing venues globally, along with the associated connectivity and processing demands, are increasing pressure on the middle and back office infrastructures of buy-side and sell-side participants. For all parties, the costs associated with compliance with new and evolving OTC regulations while maintaining operational flexibility are higher than ever.

By integrating processes along the OTC transaction lifecycle from post-trade notification and confirmation, to allocations and regulatory clearing and reporting, we provide end-to-end, multi-asset trade processing solutions.

MarkitSERV supports a broad range of asset classes and products, working continuously with the global financial industry to ensure swift and efficient coverage of new products.
