Compliance and Legal Team
New York, NY
Flourish was founded in 2017 with the goal of helping financial advisors to better secure the financial futures of their clients. We focus on independent Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs), delivering financial products that advisors can’t easily access today through beautiful, scalable, and easy-to-use technology.
Today, we work with over 550 RIAs that collectively represent more than $1.5T in assets under management across two products: Flourish Cash, a cash management solution with more than $2.5B in deposits, and Flourish Crypto, a turnkey cryptocurrency offering built for financial advisors and their clients. Headquartered in New York City, we are an independently operating, wholly owned subsidiary of MassMutual Life Insurance Company.

About the Role
The growing Flourish Legal & Compliance team is part of the larger MassMutual Legal team. Covering a growing fintech platform, the Flourish Legal & Compliance Team works on a variety of business needs, including fraud prevention; anti-money laundering and economic sanctions; broker-dealer surveillance, anti-corruption; data governance, security and privacy; and elder financial exploitation compliance strategies and programs.
As a Compliance Analyst, you will be part of Flourish’s Legal and Compliance Team. You will help review, investigate, document, escalate, and analyze risks related to Flourish’s anti-money laundering obligations. You will also monitor applicable laws and regulations relating to money laundering and financial crime, and develop and provide insight into compliance risk assessments, metrics, business awareness, and education needs as part of a team of compliance professionals.
You will also assist the team in conducting surveillance of employee communications, as Flourish is required to do as an SEC and FINRA-registered broker-dealer.

Working as an integrated team of subject matter experts, Legal & Compliance aligns various compliance efforts to manage the Firm’s risks. While the team is organized by risk (anti-money laundering and economic sanctions; data governance, security and privacy; anti-corruption; elder financial exploitation and fraud), functional integration within the same team enables the Flourish Legal and Compliance team to effectively manage risk across the organization. This is accomplished by fostering greater and consistent coordination and communications with business lines and other control functions, developing an overall legal and regulatory strategy, sharing and analyzing key data across areas like financial crimes, fraud and data privacy/security prevention activities and efficiently managing workflow, cases, and activity.
