Charlotte Whiteley, Risk Management Group - Compliance

“Starting my career at Macquarie, particularly in the Risk Management Group, has given me a wider view across the Macquarie spectrum than I thought possible. Compliance rotations have allowed me to gain insights not only into the Central Compliance functions, including combatting financial crime but also working alongside a variety of businesses from infrastructure funds to trading floors.

Whether it be training people on preventing market abuse, advising on launch documents for a new fund or assigning a risk rating to new clients, the high level of responsibility and variety that Macquarie has provided to me, even as a graduate, will put me in great stead for the rest of my career.”
