The Institutional Custody Administration Manager position provides supervision for daily operational and client-facing activities. IC Managers lead a team of 5-8 associates and interact through formal and informal means to develop a productive, engaged work force. Managers are responsible for executing daily, weekly and monthly controls to reduce risk to the organization. This role ensures our team members are properly developed to carry out their daily responsibilities and effectively service business partners.
