Your job

As a Business Consultant for the CIB Model Landscape, you will make a vital contribution to redevelop credit risk models in compliance with regulations and to ensure the availability and quality of the underlying data, both for model redevelopments and for model reviews.

You will use your knowledge and skills to work with Modelling, the Risk Data & Modelling grid, and Corporate Data Office to meet the specified goals within agreed timelines. You will involve experts from respective CIB sectors where relevant. With these experts you will participate in a number of multi-disciplinary teams for the models in scope. Activities include the assessment of data requirements, data definitions, checks against regulations and business needs, and participation in frequent modelling workshops.

Because we are bringing the models and underlying data to a structurally higher level, you and your colleagues will be actively working to improve the process where necessary. Autonomous cooperation based on an agile approach will be the key to success.

Given the importance the regulatory authorities ascribe to risk management (modelling, external reports, internal audits) and the data underpinning it, this is a challenging role with a potentially heavy workload.

Your working environment

The Central Portfolio Management team consists of 10-15 experts (end state YE2020), 4 expert leads and the Head of CPM. The team is part of the Structured Finance & Portfolio Management department within Corporate & Institutional Banking and will reflect a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds. As a team we are proud to be at the centre of CIB’s capital efficient strategy, being responsible for capital allocation, data & model management, performance management & analytics, and active portfolio steering.

You will work in Central Portfolio Management as part of the Model & Data Management cluster. The Data & Model Management cluster is a knowledge centre of credit risk rating models used by CIB. The Model Landscape is currently undergoing a lot of changes to comply with new regulations. Changes and developments in models are important because of implications on the RWA and CIB’s performance.

You will closely cooperate with commercial staff within the CIB Lending Businesses, as well as on a regular basis with central functions such as Modelling, the Risk Data & Modelling grid, Corporate Data Office, Financial Restructuring & Recovery and other grids responsible for sourcing modelling data.
