Western Asset’s Legal and Compliance team develops and maintains programs focused on conducting business in compliance with industry regulations, client guidelines, and company policy. We provide advice and recommendations on legal and regulatory matters and work hard to instill best practice. Regulatory compliance, portfolio compliance, and legal and corporate secretarial functions are integrated within one department, allowing a free exchange of expertise and experience. Success hinges on working closely with a range of other departments including portfolio management, client service, and investment operations, with an increasing emphasis on technology. It’s a dynamic environment where your skills will thrive and grow.
As a member of Western Asset’s Legal and Compliance team, you’ll be the foundation of our commitment to doing what’s right. You’ll not only work through the Firm’s efforts to comply with laws and regulations, you’ll proactively drive new innovations in performance and best practice. In return, we’ll offer you real autonomy and the chance to take responsibility for your own area of expertise. At the same time, you’ll be part of a highly collaborative environment, where problems or difficult client situations can be shared and resolved as a team. As you might expect, good communication is also one of our team's strengths. We share our experiences with team members and learn from each other every day.
We’ll help you support our clients by making sure you feel supported too. Our benefits package is designed to help you to look after your health, advance your education, and secure your retirement. Wherever you are in the world, you’ll have access to physical and emotional health and wellness programs, paid leave and time off for family commitments, disability and life insurance, a robust internal learning and development program from our corporate university, financial support for external professional training and development, and a range of retirement and savings plans.
