My client, a top tier global bank is looking for a Head of FRTB Modelling - Director based in London. This role will be reporting to the Global Head of Market Risk Analytics and responsible for all FRTB model development.
- Context: since the Lehman's default, regulators have placed significant focus on how banks measure, manage and capitalize market risk. The latest and the most significant in a long list of new market risk regulations is Fundamental Review of Trading Book (FRTB) under the aegis of Basel III.

- The role will lead the development of Market Risk Quantitative Library to implement aspects of the FRTB models
- The role will need to drive high standards across the organization, promoting consistency and harmonization where possible, whilst ensuring that the models are kept-up-to-date with current market and regulatory conditions.
- The role will need to continuously interface with regulators and effectively communicate the model effectiveness. In addition, there will be opportunity to participate in industry forums to discuss and influence potential policy decisions.
- The role will be the point of contact to the Global Markets business on FRTB market risk models.
