YOUR IMPACT:
We are looking for an individual with a passion to learn, innovate and apply quantitative skills to very complex and seldom documented problems. This individual will have an opportunity to learn about cutting edge problems investment banks are currently facing to optimise their capital and liquidity footprint. You will be given the opportunity to drive projects with direct and quantifiable PnL impact to the bottomline of the division and of the firm.
OUR IMPACT:

  • Apply Numerical optimisation techniques to the minimisation of the firm's scarce resources (capital, initial margin, contingent liquidity).
  • Develop a deep understanding of regulatory capital, methodology, and model implementation
  • Interact with business leaders to explain your findings and drive their implementation.
