With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. We bring teams of talented people together to develop the next generation of risk models that not only thrill our regulators, but also drive our business forward. Group Credit Risk Models operates in an open atmosphere of collaboration and service. We know that no one can solve the complex challenges of risk modelling on her/his own. It takes a well-rounded team of experienced professionals who are willing to look beyond their own accomplishments and work together to achieve a common objective.
GCM-Retail SME is a team of quantitative analysts responsible for developing and maintaining the credit risk models for the Retail and SME clients. Our models provide insights in the risks and potential losses of credits Rabobank is exposed to, and support business in providing better services to our customers. You can imagine that these models are widely used within the bank resulting in a complex network of stakeholders that need to be managed. In 2021, we will fully redevelop Rabobank’s credit risk models, so exciting challenges are coming our way. Detail-oriented, focus, quantitative are words that mark our team. But most importantly, we are young people who enjoy our work and make it fun!

Together, with our dedication to improve our credit risk models, we have a huge impact on our bank and our clients”.
