A multi-billion dollar AUM European asset management firm, that have expanded exponentially over the past 3yrs and continue to do so, are looking to make a newly created risk management hire.
The role has a broad remit and faces off to market risk, model risk and quant teams, in addition to having a strong focus on the portfolio management team (you will regularly respond to their enquires). The role combines credit risk and general risk reporting responsibilities, for example; credit analysis, portfolio analysis, deal review, counterparty risk etc. There will be a strong focus on data manipulation & analysis, meaning that candidates should have a genuine passion for number crunching and analytics. There will also be a key project element to the role, engaging with IT teams to implement new processes for the risk management function to flourish further.
Progression, having developed and succeeded in this role for a couple of years, can be directly in to core market risk, credit risk, quant analyst or model risk roles. That said, progression options are not limited, as they promote a business that shows fluidity and opportunity for star performers.
Candidates must have a strong academic record. An individual with 1-3yrs risk management experience is preferred, however we can consider bright, ambitious individuals working in other support roles (for example trade support, data analyst, middle office etc.) who would look for a career change in to risk management. It is a pre-requisite to have strong excel skills + excellent data analysis capabilities.
The role will most likely pay a 40-45k base salary. A high performer can expect to earn a large % of their base salary as a bonus – we are keen to stress that this is a ‘total comp role’ in which a junior can receive a leading package for an analyst role. The firm also offer a great benefits package and working environment/culture.
