Legal Assistant – Regulatory Affairs - BPI
As the Legal Assistant working in our Regulatory Affairs office, you will work directly with executives from America’s leading banks to research and synthesize information, supporting the development of regulatory comment letters, white papers, and other information. At the Bank Policy Institute (BPI), our members are financing the American economy – creating jobs, expanding businesses, securing homes, businesses and retirement, insuring growth and building consumer confidence.
In this highly visible role, you will soon develop a deep knowledge of banking and play an important role in supporting prudent regulation. Banking and financial services are a central pillar of economic activity, and the prudential regulation of this industry affects not only the safety, soundness, and financial stability of this economic sector, but also broader innovation and credit availability.
This role is an outstanding springboard for your career or an excellent opportunity prior to going to law or graduate school.You will learn from the best and build an elite network of contacts. In a typical day, you might receive emails from, or schedule calls with, the Chief Financial Officer or Chief Risk Officer at some of the most prestigious financial institutions in the world. You might attend meetings at the Federal Reserve, or help gather information to better understand an emerging regulatory issue. You might be involved in responding to a key issue in the news.
Your interest in tracking current events, your innate curiosity, and your ability to ask good questions will serve you well in this role. And as your knowledge of the banking industry and regulation grows, you will begin writing the first draft of regulatory comment letters, and become sought after as an expert on issue areas like bank liquidity and regulatory reporting.
