Our client is a global financial technology (fintech) provider of front to back office solutions for Investment Banks, Asset Managers and Hedge Funds, with a managed services / business process outsourcing operation. The London team is expanding and they’re looking for an additional risk analyst for their market risk reporting group.

Working with buy side clients it’s a varied role leveraging your market risk experience to date whilst allowing you to learn more and grow, in which you’ll;

- Provide market risk oversight across client portfolios, implementing and reporting guideline limits and regulatory compliance for UCITS, AIFs and Managed Accounts etc.

- Conduct risk monitoring of multi-assets portfolios, monitoring underlying positions, risk drivers, performance outcomes and market dynamics/volatility.

- Produce risk measures i.e. VaR, and further analysis to understand the relationship between VaR and the risk factors, volatilities, and correlations that go into the statistical calculation.

- On-going maintenance and improvement of risk processes with a focus on standardisation and automation, so as to continually improve your efficiency and client service.

Appropriate candidates will have the following experience and skills:

- At least 2-3+ years experience in a market risk analyst role, in which you’ll have developed a good grounding in the fundamentals around market risk, risk models, VaR methodologies / calculations etc.

- If you have got involved in regulatory and/or oversight committee risk reporting then great, but we’re not looking for this direct experience, strong fundamental market risk experience is the most important criteria.

- The ability to present complex information in a clear and structured way.

- Excellent data and excel skills.

- This is client facing role in which you’ll discuss risk reports and drivers etc, so must be comfortable liaising with clients in a service oriented role.

- Batchelor's degree (professional education such as CFA or FRM is a bonus but not required).

Note that this is a full-time role, but only for a 12 month contract, although there could be the option to go permanent with the company in the future if you want to look at that.

Location: London area remote (for the foreseeable future due to covid)

Excellent contract with a well-respected global company, offering the chance for a market risk practitioner to further build their knowledge & experience in varied client facing role working with leading asset managers.
