This is a rapidly growing team that is in need of senior leadership that can provide hands-on efforts as well as guidance related to C&I, CRE and other credit loss loan portfolio models as well.

  • Liaise with senior management regarding innovative modeling techniques and how to apply to them to existing models
  • Manage, own, and supervise on stress testing models across all international hubs of the firm (US, Canada, Europe)


Qualifications:

  • 10 years of hands on model development experience within global investment banks
  • Experience developing wholesale (C&I or CRE) credit risk models
  • Proficiency in SAS, R, MATLAB, or other related statistical tools
  • PhD preferred; however a quantitative Masters degree is minimum requirement
