At AQMetrics we have a highly skilled, experienced and diverse workforce with wide ranging backgrounds. Today, we introduce you to Anthony Slowey.
Name: Anthony Slowey, Global Regulatory Reporting Analyst
Describe your job in three words: Innovative, fast-paced and collaborative
What is the most exciting thing you are working on? I’ve enjoyed working with the product team on the risk solution, whether it is adding new stress tests, or incorporating new prospectus rules. It allows me to work cross-functionally in AQMetrics from insight into data model design through to the user experience in the front-end application.
How has your background helped with your role in AQMetrics? I was working in a regulatory reporting function in Deutsche Bank (now part of Apex), when I first came across AQMetrics. I had started my regulatory reporting career in Deutsche Bank, working in a great team, doing all the reporting calculations manually. Starting from first principles is a fantastic way to get a strong understanding of the logic required for each regulation and how to report individual firms accurately.
Best thing about working in AQMetrics? The ownership and responsibility of your own work. Unlike the bigger companies where you can feel like a cog in the machine, the fast-paced nature of AQMetrics creates an environment whereby each individual takes ownership of their work and is in control of the outcome. Also the 20 minute commute from Dublin helps!
Who would you most like to swap places with for the day and why? John Delaney – I would like to know the truth about the bridging loan!
What was the last book you read? Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
What websites do you visit the most? I am a big fan of Twitter. You will always find someone who agrees with your opinion!
Tell us something about yourself we don’t know. I used to study engineering and also worked in Scotland as an engineer. However, I wanted something more exciting so I got into risk monitoring and regulatory reporting.
