This position interfaces with the Investments staff with respect to new and existing investment activity (e.g., performs legal and operational due diligence on new investments) and advises project managers on contract documentation needed to support investments. This position coordinates with internal and external counsel, investment managers, and service providers to implement or modify legal agreements.

  • Ensures appropriate governance documents are executed
  • Manages Plan’s regulatory compliance requirements under ERISA, DOL, FATCA, SEC, and Dodd-Frank to ensure compliance
  • Oversees structure and usage of “FactSet” and “Diligend” file management systems, including ensuring relevant legal and compliance records (amendments, disputes, discovery), and operational due diligence reports are maintained
  • Completes Know Your Customer (KYC) documentation in relation to the Plans’ investments

  • Related compliance / legal experience in a defined benefit plan pension environment
 
Experience required:

ELEMENTS / SKILLS / CREDENTIALS / NOTES:
  • LLB/JD is required; generally this has not been an issue in sourcing as it has been a “must have” (i.e., we didn’t see resumes from non-qualified candidates)
  • The ideal candidate has 1-2 years related work experience (i.e., compliance / legal) in a Defined Benefit (DB) pension plan environment; the DB plan experience has been the biggest obstacle
  • It is also critical that person have very good communication and interpersonal skills as they will work with all Investments team members as well as internal and external counsel, investment managers and service providers
