    Not part of the FO/MO/BO structure (much like Compliance, or HR).

    This job title doesn't make any sense and is far too vague and inspecific. You are going to have to give us more informattion before we can tell you if it is FO.

    its derivatives.... so it is part of the F/M/B structure.

    but as everyone pointed out, its too vague. i'd say, it MO. but thats purely because they've whacked 'business' in there, which to me says that its not sales/trading.

    Mate the keywords there are 'business analyst'. So no, it's not part of the structure.

    Back/Middle office role... the first bit of the title simply states the products your group is supporting. BA's sometimes are usually regarded as a separate entity sometimes, but for the purpose of simplicity (and to perhaps bracket the salary expectations, which is probably the reason for questioning it in the first place) it can be grouped with Back/Middle.

    I'd second that. If I had to classify them, they'd be MO. Quite often, they sit on the trading floor with the rest of the FO and MO (risk managers, etc).

    They are usually part of technology, i.e. they analyze business need and communicate requirements to technologists. So basically an interface between the technology staff and the business units.
