That you understand credit risk regulations like Forbearance and Definition of Default. And that you are able to explain the architectural choices and consequences to a diverse group of business, architecture and IT stakeholders.

You are passionate about new developments such as data analytics and FinTech/RegTech and use them for a future proof and simplified IT architecture.
