Salary: USD110000 - USD155000 per annum + Bonus, full benefits

In managing risk, Enterprise Risk Management ("ERM") serves in a vital capacity by providing independent oversight, monitoring and control of business unit activities on a global basis.  Our bank has established an enterprise risk management framework that oversees various sources of risk: Credit, Interest Rate, Liquidity, Market, Operational (including Fiduciary) and Business (including strategic and reputational).  Enterprise Risk Management discharges its responsibilities via a matrix organization aligned with major business units and geographic regions (EMEA and Asia Pacific). Principal ERM activities include:

  •  A key role in enabling governance of risk at the Management and Board level, including the articulation and approval of risk appetite and risk policies
  • Facilitating risk identification for capital and incentive compensation analyses
  • Establishing guidelines, programs, and standards supporting risk management policies
  • Providing independent oversight of enterprise-wide adherence to risk management policies, standards and limits
  • Providing independent risk monitoring, reporting and escalation of risk management issues and concerns

The Credit Analysis function within the Counterparty Credit Approval group in ERM is responsible for supporting the principal ERM objectives by completing thorough credit analysis and due diligence of the bank’s counterparties to facilitate informed credit decisions and to support monitoring of material counterparty exposures and limits and to escalate identified risks as appropriate.  The candidate for this particular position will principally perform credit analyses of non-fund counterparties, largely corporate and insurance counterparties, who seek to do business with the bank across a spectrum of business products.
