Regulatory Reporting

A crucial process in the Finance sector, regulatory reporting documents information about a firm’s operations and activities. A company must demonstrate to authorities that they have aligned with relevant legal requirements, providing services that are best practice and operating within the law. 

Professionals in regulatory reporting are well-trusted to ensure all activities are compliant, controlling risk through evaluation, inspection, and risk management. They determine the bank’s operations as stable and transparent to regulators. Professionals will also have a good understanding of banking products and services, while it’s an added advantage to have an understanding of banking activities too.

Financial Reporting

Financial reporting is a key process in banking firms and institutions to collect, document and analyse their financial activities. This data is communicated externally to potential shareholders, stakeholders, and investors to assist with their decision making, but also to evaluate the bank’s financial health. 

Professionals in this area are trusted in the management of the financial reporting process, reporting the organisation’s financial activities. They may foresee future financial health and use the analysis of data to provide recommendations towards improving the organisation's financial status. Some individuals may also provide reports to regulatory bodies, in similarity to regulatory reporting. 

Fund Accountant 

Fund Accountants are responsible for day-to-day accounting for a business, preparing accounts and reports for investment funds. They have a key role in ensuring businesses’ performance, such as transactions, statement and procedures are compliant with financial regulations.

By providing insights, recording of funds, and management of investment portfolios, Fund Accountants offer support in decision-making for successful funding tasks and implementing fund structures. They must be confident in numerical tasks, to analyse data and problem solve.


Treasurers are crucial in managing a company's money. Daily responsibilities include day-to-day cash flow management, risk assessment and supporting with finance decisions. Whilst there are some similarities to an Accountant, Treasurers will optimise cash flows, so they are aligned with the business’ goals.

Successful treasurers must have knowledge of financial markets and strategy, and be confident in risk management. Whilst they become close with the business and building valuable relationships, strong communication is an essential part of the position.
