In this week’s Meet the Team Series instalment we bring you one of our Transaction Reporting Officers based in our London office…
If we had to describe Rajen in a few words, we would say he is:
How did Rajen find himself at TRAction?
Rajen explains, “I studied economics at university and had previous experience working with exchange-traded derivatives and regulatory reporting at an investment bank in the City of London, so when the opportunity came to join an exciting and growing firm within the transaction reporting industry, I happily went for it.”
Some of Rajen’s responsibilities…
Rajen assists with transaction reporting for our UK and European clients, covering EMIR, STFR and MiFIR, in accordance with regulatory requirements. He also helps with fixing any errors in client data received and making sure client trades are submitted successfully. Rajen is generally the first point of contact for daily client communication and queries.
What are the most enjoyable aspects of Rajen’s role?
“I like the responsibility of being an integral part of the daily client experience, and also how being in a tight-knit team means I have exposure to many sides of the business outside of my primary tasks, so I am always learning,” says Rajen.
Away from the office…
Rajen is an avid Arsenal FC follower and “very into his fitness, thanks to lockdown” he notes. Most weekends you will find him enjoying happy hour in London.
If given the opportunity to go anywhere in the world, Rajen would…
“I loved my visit to Thailand, so a wider tour of south east Asia would be next on the list,” Rajen tells us.
Fun facts about Rajen…
Rajen explains, “I was in the cadets for about 6 years, reaching the rank of Sergeant, but turns out the army life wasn’t my cup of tea.”
To wrap up, what is Rajen’s favourite quote and/or advice?
In true Friday fashion, Rajen gives an inspiring quote to keep us motivated as the working week comes to an end, “We have two lives, and the second begins when we realise we only have one” – Confucius
