The low interest rate environment is an example of such a trend.
The Market Risk Management team comprises of a team of 30 experts. We are determined to advise our business stakeholders to empower the customers of ING to stay ahead financially, in life and business. Client behaviour is crucial to us and we have loads of data. We use state-of-the-art modelling methods and technologies to explore, analyse, and leverage data. We keep up-to-date on the latest trends relevant to us such as Machine Learning modelling.
