Market Risk Analyst
This sought-after position offers you an excellent opportunity to join our EMEA, Market Risk team, in London. You will be able to apply your risk skills and prior experience to support our Market Risk team.
Market Risk is concerned with measuring and limiting Macquarie's 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 Macquarie trades, this is a constantly challenging responsibility, but one that is pivotal to the Macquarie way of doing business.
On a day-to-day basis, Market Risk is responsible for setting, monitoring, reporting and enforcing risk limits across all the trading areas of the Group. In addition, Market Risk approval is required on all new deals and products prior to trading. Whether it is an innovative exotic derivative structure, or the purchase of an entire trading business, Market Risk analysts work closely with the front office to ensure that the risks arising from the new venture are fully understood, and adequately constrained.
Your role as a Market Risk Analyst will see you get involved in the approval of new products, businesses and trading strategies; monitoring and reporting risk metrics daily to senior management, including the Managing Director. In doing so, you will gain exposure to a wide range of businesses and products from around the globe and interact regularly with the 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 liaise with back office and support staff 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 also keep abreast of market news and trends, which will be vital to understanding and identifying potential risks. You will operate in a global environment with Market Risk staff based in Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, London, New York, Houston and Geneva.
You are an experienced Market Risk analyst with 1-2 + years’ experience gained within an international financial institution or financial services firm. You will have the ability to balance and switch between detail orientated problem-solving, versus managing higher level strategic activities and objectives. You will bring the ability to sustain a high level of performance under pressure with short deadlines and competing priorities, and you will have a strong analytical ability and judgment. You are a confident communicator with strong interpersonal and relationship building skills and able to interact with stakeholders across all levels. You will also hold a bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Finance, Mathematics, Economics.
