Are you passionate about problem solving, interested in the interest rate risk and enjoy improving processes and related controls within a small innovative bank? Then this is the perfect job for you!

Are you passionate about problem solving, interested in the interest rate risk and enjoy improving our processes and related controls? As a Quantitative ALM Specialist you will be responsible for managing and modelling Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (IRRBB) in a small and engaged team.  Furthermore, the role will include at least the following:

  • Managing the interest rate risk through hedging;
  • Developing and further improving interest rate related models (e.g. Non-Maturing Deposits, Cash Flows, Prepayments, Mortgage Pipeline, Hedge Accounting);
  • Preparing decision-making, policies and analyses for senior management;
  • Reporting the IRRBB position to ALCO;
  • Staying up-to-date with the latest changes in regulation (i.e. EBA, BCBS 239) related to IRRBB management;
  • Enhancing reporting processes with regard to the automation and quality of the reported data.

The current interest rate environment and upcoming changes in EBA IRRBB regulation make it a very dynamic and exciting time to be part of a first-line of defence ALM team. The combination of the current economic climate, a flat-structured bank and a wide range of responsibilities offers you a great opportunity to grow professionally and develop a holistic view on interest rate risk of the bank.

The Team
The Asset and Liability Management & Methodology (ALM&M) team’s goal is to deliver on the company’s strategy by optimizing the balance sheet. They do this by ensuring that the interest rate risk, liquidity risk and funding positions are managed within the boundaries set in the strategies for those risks whilst not losing sight of the profitability of the bank.

My client believes in assigning ownership instead of tasks and, as a result, everyone within the ALM&M team gets the chance to own and be in the lead of a focus area within our team. This creates a flat structure which enables people to take initiative and develop their professional career on their own terms. On a personal side, they are a fun and multi-national team of curious and knowledgeable people. They perceive work as a challenge to improve ourselves and the bank. They like to work together and learn from each other through regular knowledge sharing sessions. They also enjoy spending time together outside of the work (e.g. having a drink or a game of padel)

Your Profile
To be successful in this role, this is the kind of traits they have in mind:

  • Completed a M.Sc. in (Quantitative) Finance, Econometrics, Mathematics, Physics or similar degree;
  • 3 to 8 years of relevant working experience in financial modelling, ALM or balance sheet management;
  • Experience with VBA (excel), R, C++, or Python is a must, SQL is a plus;
  • Experience with ALM / Risk software solutions such as QRM or Ambit Focus is preferred;
  • Clear communication and proficient interpersonal skills (clearly formulate a perspective, show critical thinking etc.);
