JPMorgan Chase Commercial Banking - Accounting – Internal Controls – Associate in Chicago, Illinois
The regulatory reporting function within Commercial Banking and Firmwide Wholesale Lending seeks a strong associate to support its control environment around external reporting, namely the further enhancement of the control framework around the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) submission.
The opportunity includes liaising with critical partners across the entire firm, including Wholesale Lending Services, Risk and Finance and preparing updates for senior management forums on the assessment of the control environment for a highly visible schedule of $800+ billion in wholesale loan exposure for the firm.
