management reporting, profit & loss monitoring, tax (planning and operations), compliance, investor

The Financial Operations group is broadly divided into:
This group regularly evaluates the health and performance of our operations. It compiles
financial statements on a periodic basis to present to investors, counterparties,
regulators, and other government entities. The responsibilities of this group also
include accounting, reporting, and audit support.
The Analytics team supports the D. E. Shaw group’s information requirements
responsible for tracking transactions and maintaining our investor and consultant
databases. They also prepare group-wide profit & loss and expense reports, compile the
expense budget for the group, and handle other expense- and time-allocation processes.
This team provides assistance to ensure that the D. E. Shaw group’s activities are in
accordance with the varied laws, regulations, and restrictions across the global
jurisdictions in which we invest and operate. It consists of domain experts who help the
group navigate the complexities associated with tax legislation, global regulatory
compliance, and valuation models for private equity investments.
