APRA is seeking an experienced analyst to join the Superannuation Strategic Insights team (Super SI) within the Cross-Industry Insights & Data division.
Super SI supports APRA's mandate through the provision of forward looking, data-driven insights that inform risk-based supervisory judgements and strategic decisions. The team plays a critical role in developing and delivering APRA's superannuation strategic initiatives.
As a Principal Analyst you will take the lead on the delivery of high-quality industry insights and advice to APRA's senior executive, superannuation supervisors, risk specialists and other government bodies.
You will work closely with senior specialists across APRA to develop and provide advice to help facilitate improved outcomes across the superannuation industry. This work will include the development of tools and processes to inform effective decision making, as well as identifying emerging risks and strategic solutions to address those risks. A major plank of this work involves in depth modelling, financial analysis and stress testing of superannuation funds' operations and investment management.
The role will also expose you to work on significant projects that will impact the entire superannuation industry such as implementing the recent Your Future, Your Super Budget measures. You will also engage and collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders across the superannuation industry.
The successful candidate will have thorough understanding of the superannuation industry and investment management combined with a strong background in analytical areas such as finance, economics, actuarial studies or mathematics.
