We’re just at the beginning of our story and we’re growing at an incredible pace. We won’t stop until anyone, anywhere can send, spend and receive money wherever they are, whatever they’re doing. There’s still heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

Job Description

We’re looking for an experienced Treasury Manager to join our Treasury team in Singapore. This role is a unique growth opportunity in our Treasury within our newly created Markets team, with the ability to have a direct impact on Wise's mission → Money without Borders.

Your mission:

Wise has already pioneered new ways for people to transfer money across borders and currencies. Our customers can also manage their hard-earned money with the world’s first platform to offer true multi-currency banking. Your mission is to help us manage our risks in real time, and help us keep lowering our prices

Our Markets team manages the risk on our GBP 105bn+ FX book and our GBP 11bn of customer assets.

Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the Treasury team

  • Using your experience managing dealing activities, you will help us manage group wide FX risks and manage liquidity trades to ensure we have money where our customers need it.
  • Own the local execution relationships with our panel of international banks and counterparties, ensuring we are negotiating on price, and optimising for both price and broader relationship whenever we trade

  • Working directly with our product team to automate risk management and funding strategies once proven

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your path to impact - we believe people are most empowered when they can act autonomously. So rather than telling you what to do, you’ll work with your team to create a vision of your own. Of course, you can always gather feedback from smart, curious people across Wise but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls
  • Be part of a rapidly growing team, in an expanding business, giving opportunities to expand the role as you grow
  • Be flexible in how you work, we understand everyone needs a little something different so we’ll do our best to make it happen
  • You’ll have the opportunity to travel and work with our teams globally
  • Grow as a leader – with our rapid growth, this role will need to be a source of markets expertise across our entire business


About you:

  • Experience in a high paced, high flow, FX environment across a broad range of currencies, especially Asian Exotics
  • Confident dealing spot, forwards, swaps, and NDFs to manage live exposures
  • An experienced professional relationship builder with our banks and counterparties
  • A leader that has experience managing a small team
  • Experience in a change environment, with broad collaboration
  • Proficient prioritiser - you make the right decisions on how to allocate time and effort
  • You can easily communicate complex ideas to various crowds
  • You have delivered tools, processes or products that optimise and scale in the treasury environment (Trading, Cash Management, Pricing, Risk management, etc)
  • Open approach to problem solving in a fast paced environment

Some extra skills that would be great (but not essential):

  • Experience in the payments industry/fintech space
  • Experience with settlements and operating teams will be valuable
  • Experience with Asset Management execution (Bonds, MMFs etc)
  • ACT Qualifications
