About Universal Partners
Founded by two co-owners, Oliver Carson and Dhaval Patel, Universal Partners are one of the fastest growing companies within the FX sector. We are the only deliverable FX company in the UK who are achieving more than £7m Gross Profit within 5 years of being incorporated. We are now in the process of blitz scaling these numbers to over £20m within the next 24-36 months. The difference with Universal Partners is that we are not pre-built like many large organisations providing an extreme number of opportunities and growth to further your career. We are a fast-paced, fresh, and young company with lots of talent and an amazing culture leading us to national and global media recognition.
The Risk Department is tasked to establish, implement, and maintain risk management policies and procedures that are effective in managing the risk exposure of Universal Partners. The aim is to maintain our risk profile within the risk appetite while allowing the business to pursue its goals. The department facilitates the implementation of the risk policies and procedures that governs the risk-taking abilities of Universal Partners.
As a member of the Risk team, the Treasury & Risk assistant is responsible for assisting the team to manage the day-to-day task that the risk team are required to undertake.
This involves daily monitoring of trades, calculating and issuing deposit and variation margin calls.
The main goal is to ensure Universal Partners’ daily risk exposure and tasks are completed efficiently and by the given deadline.
Although not a formal responsibility, the expectation would be that each member of the risk team can cover for other members when there are absences so we would anticipate an openness to learning and managing the other key risk areas when required (credit and operational risk).
