Opportunity for a Manager / Senior Manager to lead our Singapore 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.

As the Market Risk lead in our Singapore office, you will:

  • Manage a high-performing team of market risk analysts setting, monitoring, reporting and enforcing risk limits across the trading areas.
  • Have experience in and understanding of foreign exchange and fixed income markets, credit derivative products, and electricity trading markets.
  • Using strong analytical skills, be involved in the approval of new products, businesses and trading strategies and assess the appropriateness of mathematical derivative pricing models within the context of real-world market conditions.
  • Innovate and drive the evolution of the Market Risk framework.
  • Using strong interpersonal and relationship building skills, interact with senior management, auditors and regulators while working closely with internal stakeholders including those in front office, risk, quant, tech and finance.
  • Conceptualize, anticipate and articulate emerging issues to management within the global Market Risk team and the broader Risk Management Group.

You will demonstrate the ability to balance and switch between detail orientated problem-solving versus managing higher level strategic activities and objectives. You will have the ability to sustain a high level of performance in a fast-paced environment and enjoy being immersed in and understanding what drives financial markets.

We are seeking an individual with at least 6yrs+ of Market Risk experience, with a deep knowledge and understanding of Fixed Income, Currency and Commodity markets.
