A critical priority for Asset Management is to ensure that high-quality data is available to run our business and meet our clients' needs. The Asset Management Chief Data Office (CDO) was established in 2014 to define AM's data strategy and support for the core data used across AM and needed to run our business, such as client data, reference data, product data, securities and pricing data, transactions and holdings, and index data. The AM CDO is positioned in the Asset Management Operations division, within AM Center. We work with the AM business and Firmwide CDO to analyze data, ensure data governance and data quality standards are in place, look for efficiencies in business processes, and work with our technology partners to implement solutions.
There are several Project Manager/ Data Analyst roles open within the CDO, supporting the following functional CDO groups; Data Governance, Transactions and Holdings data domain, Index and Benchmark data domain, or the Securities and Pricing data domain. The projects and programs will include efforts to establish and adopt standard data definitions, develop and use golden data sources, define data quality criteria and rules, track data lineage, and retire legacy applications. The Project Manager/Data Analyst will collaborate with other project/program managers, business and data analysts, data governance leads, business SMEs, operations, and technology teams, in efforts to plan, manage, and track projects and programs to ensure successful implementation. The Project Manager/Data Analyst will also work closely with the domain executives in the definition and management of the ongoing data domain data strategy and roadmap. The Data Analyst role does get directly involved with our business partners to solution new data requests or enhancements to support strategic development and business growth.
