Associate (Graduate), Market Risk Singapore (May 2022)
Are you a final year student looking to build a career in Market Risk? We have an exciting opportunity for a Graduate/Associate to join our Market Risk team within the Risk Management Group, based in Singapore.
The Market Risk team is responsible for measuring and limiting our exposure to adverse movements in market rates - stock prices, commodity prices, interest rates, and foreign exchange rates. Due to the diversity and complexity of the products that we trade, this is a constantly challenging responsibility, but one that is pivotal to our way of doing business.
Daily, we are responsible for setting, monitoring, reporting and enforcing risk limits across all the trading areas. In addition, we approve new deals and products prior to trading. Whether it is an innovative exotic derivative structure, or the purchase of an entire trading business, we work closely with the front office to ensure that the risks arising from the new venture are fully understood, and adequately constrained.
As a fresh graduate working alongside our experts, you will gain exposure and hone your expertise in market risk. Utilising your strong analytical skills you will be involved in the approval of new products, businesses and trading strategies. On a day-to-day basis you will monitor and report risk metrics to senior management. In doing so, you will gain exposure to a wide range of businesses and products from around the globe. You will show good judgment while assessing the appropriateness of mathematical derivative pricing models within the context of real-world market conditions.
Your strong interpersonal and relationship building skills will strengthen your interactions with stakeholders across all levels. You will be interacting constantly with our front office traders to ensure that the market risks arising from day-to-day trading positions are fully understood and managed appropriately within the limit framework. You will also liaise with back office and support functions to ensure that the trading systems adequately represent the risk profile of the trading books, and that risk numbers are reported in an accurate and timely manner. You will develop your expertise in conceptualizing, anticipating and articulating emerging issues.
You will demonstrate the ability to balance and switch between detail orientated problem-solving versus managing higher level strategic activities and objectives. You will enjoy being immersed in and understanding what drives financial markets. Keeping abreast of market news and trends is vital to understanding and identifying potential risks.
