Data Steward for our Private Banking Investment Desk

Date:  16-Nov-2021

Brussels, BE, 1040



The Investment Desk of Degroof Petercam’s Private Banking (PB) is looking for a Data Steward, a transversal role reporting to both the Head of Investments and the Chief Data Officer (CDO). She or he will take responsibility for the quality and availability of financial instruments data and information that is relevant for PB’s investment policy, whether it is for research-, regulatory- or reporting purposes. To achieve these, the Data Steward will be supported by a Data Management Framework implemented corporate wide by the CDO Office. Together with the community of Data Stewards, he will act as a change agent to promote Data Management best practices in his domain.
As part of his role, she or he creates an optimal workflow between decision making and communication. She or he ensures the data and information is correctly and efficiently reflected into our SMF (Securities Masterfile), in our OMS (Order Management System) and on our data integration and content platforms. All changes are properly documented – to enable workflow audits – and clearly communicated to portfolio managers.


Your Position


In particular, as Data Steward you make sure:

  • The data is always of the highest quality and integrity. The Data Steward is invited in investment committees and participates to workgroups on implementation of investment policy. When data is sourced from an external data provider, the Data Steward makes regular reviews of relevant providers and makes sure the chosen provider is the most relevant. 
  • The data is updated regularly to reflect most recent changes. 
  • The data is tagged to the financial instruments in our SMF. When updates occur, the changes are documented with minutes from the relevant committees. 
  • The data is accurate at the opening of a new financial instrument or when transfers occur. 
  • The data is readily available on our OMS and on our content platforms. 
  • The workflow is optimized and documented using a data integration tool. When updates occur, the changes are documented with minutes from the relevant committees. In the event of controls, the Data Steward needs to be able to make the necessary justifications. In the event of an audit (internal and external), the Data Steward must be able to document the workflow. 
  • The relevant information appears together with relevant internal- and external content on our content platforms. 
  • The Data Steward participates to the proper implementation of PB’s Investment Policy, writing procedures if necessary. As part of his role, he will suggest enhancements.


Your Profile


We are looking for an all-rounder, who combines the following:

  • A Master’s degree in Finance or in Business Engineering or in ICT Engineering or any other area (if you are curious about finance and information systems)
  • A few (2y+) years of experience (in financial markets, audit, corporate finance) is considered a plus but not a pre-requisite
  • Good interpersonal skills, a team player
  • Independent thinking
  • Self-starter, organized and able to meet deadlines
  • Numerically literate (i.e. able to process a wide a range of data) and analytical (i.e. able to come to high conviction conclusions)
  • At ease with Microsoft Office (Excel, PowerPoint & Word) and generally able to learn new systems. The ability to program in VBA and/or Python and knowledge of SQL are considered an advantage. 
  • Being a ready user of investment information aggregators (such as Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Factset, Morningstar, Sustainalytics…) is a benefit
  • Good written and verbal communication and presentation skills in English, Dutch and / or French
