Job Description
Global investment bank seeks an AVP level Market Risk Manager as part of its expanding macro division. Role offers strong desk exposure.

A new opportunity has become available for a Market Risk Manager to join the EMEA Macro team in the London office. The work of a Market Risk Manager is a blend of technical understanding of financial products, real-time monitoring of financial markets, and quantitative data analysis/modelling. It requires a variety of communication skills used to report on risk positions in order to influence risk takers and inform key stakeholders.

Overview of the Role:

The successful candidate will be responsible for identifying, managing and communicating market risk exposures. The role involves managing significant risk positions and performing quantitative and qualitative analysis. It also requires a thorough understanding of risk management practices and appreciation for financial products. The role requires understanding the business activity on a trading desk and undertaking risk reporting across a range of audiences ranging from individual traders, through to senior management and regulators.

Risk analysis is one half of the job, performed using the firm's systems as well as via ad-hoc methods. Communication is the other half of the job, describing the analysis conducted in a variety of ways, some standard, and some ad-hoc. Duties will include:
  • Working closely with trading desks and support partners to enhance our overall risk management capabilities
  • Identifying, managing and communicating risk exposures
  • Risk reporting across a broad range of audiences ranging from individual traders, to senior management and regulators

Core Skills:

There is no unique background defining a successful Risk Manager. However, a quantitative mind, natural curiosity, a desire to challenge the status quo while searching for gaps and trying to see the big picture are key requirements

One or more of the following qualities would be beneficial:
  • Previous experience as a Risk Manager working directly with the Front Line and performing risk analysis
  • Solid academic background, which may include a postgraduate qualification
  • Good people skills demonstrated across various communication styles (both written and verbal)
  • Knowledge of financial markets, ideally with solid understanding of Macroeconomics
  • Understanding of financial derivatives and modelling
  • Ability to multi-task and prioritise across several competing demands, meeting tight deadlines

Competencies:
  • Effective team player
  • Intellectual curiosity
  • Excellent problem solving skills.
  • Highly motivated with the drive and potential to learn from others.
