I started at Morgan Stanley in 2008 as an Operations analyst looking after Swiss and UK equity settlements. Working with tight daily deadlines and high pressure my task was to prioritize stock settlements in a market where short selling is commonplace and avoid Exchange fees whenever the firm faced such risk for non-delivery. After participating in the transitioning of this function to Chennai, India, I moved to Finance in 2010 where I got the opportunity to lead the swaps team reconciling brokerage invoices and keeping contact with offices around the globe, both internal and external. I transitioned over the FX reconciliation functions from New York myself, by traveling there and training my team of 3 in Budapest. My role expanded with month end close tasks, accounting and GL postings apart from daily contact keeping with Operations, Trading Assistants and broker contact maintenance. My team leader roles involved looking after a third team, too, safeguarding Commodities invoice payments, where I was in daily contact with traders to resolve issues apart from people management duties.
