The Assistant Vice President Risk Analytics and Modelling role plays a vital role in the measurement and assessment of financial and non-financial risks for the bank.  We develop sophisticated models to provide analytical solutions and tools to quantify key risk metrics used to inform business decisions and meet regulatory and financial reporting obligations.

As an Assistant Vice President Risk Analytics and Modeling you will be responsible for development and enhancement of methodologies and models for estimating credit risk parameters (Probability of Default, Loss Given Default and Exposure At Default) for all relevant portfolio segments in a manner compliant with internal and regulatory requirements (e.g., Basel II Internal Ratings Based - Approach, Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, Current Expected Credit Losses, etc.) and robust enough to support practical business decisions (includes reviewing, analyzing and documenting model development/implementation process).

  •  Support wider team effort to develop credit risk models
  •  Support model migration/ implementation
  •  Support ad-hoc analysis to support business and other stakeholder requirements
