Required experience:

  • Experience with performing pricing analytic reconciliations b/w systems as it relates to bond price analytics (really any experience in reconciling pricing analytics between systems in the fixed income mkt is also fine, even if its not specifically bonds, so structured finance exp. would also be okay.)
