Who we are and how you fit into the team: 
European Commodity Clearing AG (“ECC”) is a clearing house located in Leipzig, Germany which provides clearing and settlement services for numerous commodity exchanges in Europe and their global client community. As a clearing house we fall under the same strict anti-money laundering and sanction laws regime as banks. To address these requirements, we have established processes which enable us to thoroughly check the identity of new clients and constantly monitor existing clients against those very high standards (“know your customer” or “KYC”). The Customer Due Diligence & KYC Team is tasked to ensure a timely identification and escalation of potential AML or sanction related client risks and ensure compliance with AML and sanction regimes throughout the customer life cycle.

You review AML, KYC and other regulatory requirements for all clients on a regular basis. Furthermore, you maintain detailed records on clients for second-level review and support internal and external auditors. Overall, you will help to improve and digitalise the process of KYC and AML data collection and, of course, receive a great deal in return for your outstanding performance from your team. After all, we value the exchange of ideas, being there for each other and encouraging each other to be their best. We call it: The Exchange Mindset.
