Contract Custody Lawyer – Canary Wharf – 12 month contract - Up to £950/day
Our client is one of the world’s leading Custodian banks, with an expanding Securities Services legal team.
This is one additional headcount for a previously advertised role.
The role requires someone to set up global precedents / standard documentation and to act as a point of escalation for the negotiation of transaction documents (particularly global/custody/sub-custody agreements), as well as all the supplementary documentation across every client sector. There will also be opportunities to advise on new product development, working closely with the strategy teams across EMEA and the US.
The ideal candidate will have worked for at least one of the other major custody/collateral management institutions, and be confident working with senior figures in the business. The client would look at talented lawyers from asset management backgrounds, and a good combination of intellectual curiosity and sector experience is more important than top law firm training.
