Business Insight

The position is located at Société Générale Africa Technologies and Services (SG ATS), in Casablanca.

Capital Markets Surveillance (“CMS”) is a global function forming part of the Global Compliance Department. CMS undertakes a program of Compliance Trade and Communications Surveillance activities covering several risk areas (Market Abuse, Conduct, Conflicts, Financial Crime) across several BU in the group Wholesale activity (Global Banking and Investor’s Solutions).

The function has dedicated teams in 7 jurisdictions around the world (France, UK, US, Canada, HK, Japan, India) which act as respective hubs for surveillance activities worldwide.
CMS undertakes a range of ongoing daily Surveillance activities and investigations, alongside an ever present program of ‘change the bank’ activities to implement new technologies and enhance the existing toolset.
