The team is established in New York, London, Zurich, Warsaw, Mumbai and Singapore.

As a member of the MRM team, the candidate will get exposure to modelling in a wide variety of risk areas such as credit risk, market risk, operational risk etc. The current heightened regulatory focus on these areas and the team’s broader model risk scope also guarantees a significant level of interest and visibility to the business and senior management. Opportunities to present results to business partners as well as peers are numerous, allowing the candidate to widen and develop their network and reputation.

We are a department that values Diversity and Inclusion (D&I;) and are committed to realizing the firm’s D&I; ambition which is an integral part of our global Conduct and Ethics Standards.
Use business insights, as well as mathematical skills to evaluate financial models.
Lead and manage independent validation reviews across a range of capital planning models, meeting business needs and regulatory expectations with responsibility for investigating key aspects of each model under review such as choice of modelling approach, the underlying assumptions and associated limitations, performance and efficient use of the model.
Review, verify and validate risk models for theoretical soundness, testing design and identification of model weaknesses, ensuring ongoing monitoring as well as contribute in the firm-wide model risk and control assessment.
Demonstrate independence in planning and business partner engagement, testing design and execution, results interpretation and presentation, and the production of documentation strong enough to evidence a sound challenge to both internal and external parties.
Be expected to communicate various aspects of model validation to modelers, managements and regulators.

Client focus and outstanding written and verbal communication skills to handle senior business associates, including explaining complex topics to a diverse range of audiences.
