    Common goals, uncommon potential

    As a Quantitative Risk Analyst, you’ll bring a passion for data and data visualization to the Enterprise Risk Management team. Your inquisitive nature and ability to develop strong relationships will enable you to be the “go-to” resource in the Enterprise Risk Management organization for data analysis projects. Your reach and impact will extend beyond Enterprise Risk Management as you address financial, operational and strategic risks and collaborate with other departments and business lines to produce analytics that support risk assessments and decision-making. Your knowledge and understanding of data visualization will enable you to present your analysis in visually appealing and impactful ways to influence risk decision makers.


    What you’ll do as a Quantitative Risk Analyst:

    • Working across Enterprise Risk Management with Risk Officers and key representatives of the Bank’s first line of defense, manage the suite of risk metrics and dashboards used to monitor and escalate risk information to senior management and the Board, including metrics in the Bank’s Risk Appetite Statement and Key Risk Indicator dashboards.
    • Work with metric owners and the Enterprise Risk Management team to keep metrics current, ensuring that a robust rationale, supported by data analysis, exists for all metrics and their threshold levels.
    • Calibrate risk metric limits and thresholds through statistical analysis of underlying data sets.
    • Develop, manage and update the risk metric dashboards using Tableau.
    • Maintain the inventory of Risk Appetite Statement metrics and Key Risk Indicators and document their changes and evolution over time.
    • Support the Risk Analytics Director and Risk Officers in the identification of forward-looking risk metrics to support the monitoring of new or emerging risks within the Bank.
    • Leverage your passion for data and your advanced analytic skills to retrieve data from key Bank data repositories for risk metric analysis and other activities to support the Enterprise Risk Management team, including supporting the Risk Analytics Director and Risk Officers in performing ad hoc analysis on risk-specific situations (such as researching causes of risk appetite or Key Risk Indicator threshold/tolerance breaches); analyzing significant risks in the enterprise risk inventory and supporting Risk Officers with risk analysis and quantification through quantitative or scenario analysis; and creating dashboards and presenting your analysis using Tableau.
    • Work collaboratively with all the members of the Enterprise Risk Management team to support the evolution of the Enterprise Risk Management program.
