  • Respond to ad-hoc/non-recurrent demands, as selected by the Heads of Unit and Division, including new initiatives/policies related to the content of the post when needed.


  • University degree, preferably in a quantitative field.Post-graduate studies in these subjects and professional qualifications such as PRM or FRM certifications would be an advantage
  • Relevant professional experience in ALM or Financial/Market Risk Management, including at least 5 years in quantitative and financial modelling (for example net interest income simulations, transfer-pricing systems, capital allocation models, yield curve modelling or BPV calculation)
  • Hands-on experience in designing and implementing financial or risk models, e.g. design and implementation of pricing libraries, risk applications or ALM calculation and projection tools
  • Hands-on experience with at least one of the following programming oriented-object languages: C#, C++, Python, Java
