You bring thorough knowledge of at least one of the major asset classes we trade (equity, fixed income, FX) and will be interacting closely with traders to gain a deep understanding of trading strategies and exposures. You will translate this understanding into improvements to our risk management frameworks, limits and policies.

  • Analyze trading desks' capital usage and return on capital, connecting it to entity-level risk capacity
  • Ensure the required tools and reports to facilitate risk analysis are in place
  • Create and update risk policies and procedures to ensure effective governance and operations
  • Be involved in regulatory processes and deliverables such as ICAAP and IFR/IFD
  • Train and guide other team members
  • Align policies, tools and analyses with colleagues in local offices worldwide

What you need to succeed
  • 6-10 years of relevant experience in financial risk management or trading
  • Relevant university degree, ideally complemented by an FRM/CFA qualification
  • Experienced user of Excel and SQL
  • Knowledge of Python is an advantage
  • Strong knowledge of at least one of the major asset classes we trade (equity, fixed income, FX)
  • Effective communicator, able to effectively work with stakeholders
  • A proactive and flexible personality
  • Fluency in English, written and spoken
