Risk Manager Financial Markets
that our financial markets business has full insight into the drivers of our market and counterparty credit risk and that our risk framework enables them to grasp opportunities when they arise. All of course while safeguarding our status as a Rock-Solid bank. Do you want to make that happen?
As a Risk Manager Financial Markets you can make a difference by understanding how developments in the financial markets and initiatives taken by the business affect our risk exposures and risk framework. It all comes together, because you know the regulatory requirements, the applicable policies and business processes, the operational aspects that come with it, the data and systems used to analyse risks, the drivers in the methodologies used, the key risks on which we report, and the impact on our capital.

The challenges ahead are among others to remain compliant with EU and US regulatory requirements, to work together with the business on the migration to one system for front office, back office and risk, and to improve the efficiency of our (daily) processes.
