I finally joined the Oasis. I was asked to take a moment to introduce myself and point out my reasons for joining. Unlike most of the individuals here, I'm not from a front office background. I started my career in the back office in Fund Accounting/Fund Financial Reporting, then worked my way up a leadership role in AML Compliance. I'm from Toronto, Canada. Also, I may be a bit older than most of the members (34). Rest assured, I don't have any intentions of going into the front office. As they say," the ship has sailed."
My intention for joining is to get a better understanding of various different front office roles and to think of ways to help them meet regulatory compliance regulations in their jurisdictions. I look forward to meeting you all, having meaningful discussions and looking forward to contributing. Please feel free to drop by and say "hello".
