1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I work in a team which deals with efficency changes within the bank as well as client onboarding and fund services for the accounting that accompanies the bank's cusotdy business. For the efficiency changes, my team implement new procedures across the regions of fund accounting and setup platforms where these changes are centralised.

Also, when a new client starts business with the firm, I am involved in onboarding them from a fund accounting perspective.
