New York City or Washington D.C.


Promontory Financial Group, LLC, an IBM Company is the premier consulting firm for financial services companies worldwide. Our senior professionals have served as partners of top law firms and leaders of financial regulators and global financial institutions, including positions such as general counsel or chief legal officer. Unlike many law and consulting firms, we focus upon a single core competency: mastery of U.S. and global financial regulation. In this arena, our professionals offer a unique blend of legal, regulatory, and management expertise, and we are generally engaged by the board or senior executives of leading financial institutions to assist with their most pressing, sensitive, and complex assignments. With offices in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Brussels, Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Milan, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Toronto, Promontory is able to serve clients wherever their needs arise. Eugene A. Ludwig, former U.S. Comptroller of the Currency and former Vice Chairman of Bankers Trust/Deutsche Bank, founded Promontory in 2001. We have more than 300 professional employees, including many individuals who have held some of the most senior positions in leading regulatory agencies around the world. These roles offer bright and ambitious individuals an excellent opportunity to develop their careers and build expertise in financial services. The individuals selected for these positions will work directly with the most senior staff in the firm on a wide range of issues and clients, which could include projects in Promontory’s overseas offices. Promontory is committed to career development through a number of initiatives including a dedicated mentor program, as well as support in managing client relationships through regular practice sessions.
