Position Purpose & Summary

Assisting in the process of determining AR/MTM/Stressing/Volume & tenor limits by originating the necessary limit requests as well as make sure the approved limits are appropriately transferred to the different business systems.

Financials need to be obtained either through a third party supplier or other sources (local chamber of commerce sites for example), and perform financial analysis providing advice on the customer’s credit worthiness in relation to the business requirements.

A broad knowledge of the different systems in use by Counterparty risk as well as the business ERPs and applications is needed to perform this role.

The Counterparty Risk Analyst will be participating in the daily credit control process, ensuring no deliveries are made towards high risk customers. The role will be also responsible for obtaining appropriate approvals and providing all necessary information supporting the decision making process.

The analyst will perform regular data integrity checks to make sure the approved limits are correctly reflected in the business systems. Any corrections needed, can be made following this data integrity check. A data integrity report needs to be issued to the relevant Counterparty Risk Leads.

The analyst will perform a first review on received alerts providing customer information (last approved limit, ageing status, risk profile, any other high risk elements), identifying all necessary actions and informing the relevant Counterparty Risk Lead.

The analyst will track validity of existing limits and risk mitigations and will trigger review close to the expiry date.

The analyst will assist the Counterparty Risk Leads in the preparation of month-end reporting as well as ad hoc reports.
