Imagine Rabobank’s market risk models are seen as state of the art by the business, by the supervisors and by our competitors. With you as our Senior Risk Manager Methodology, we will achieve this together. Your expertise and ability to identify, model and measure risks for Financial Markets products will be an asset to our team.

Making a difference 
  • Addressing supervisory findings related to the IRC models.

  • Reviewing existing models and identifying improvements.

  • Including new risks in Rabobank’s market risk framework.

  • Implementing new regulatory requirements like FRTB.

  • Working with IT to get model changes implemented in the Risk systems.

  • Carrying out regulatory exercises like the EBA stress test.

  • Working closely with other departments in the Financial Markets domain.

An example of our previous market risk projects that made a difference: We implemented the market risk framework for linear interest rate & FX derivatives in Rabobank’s new Front-to-Back-to-Risk system Murex . The result: Due to innovative use of spread curve methodology in the new system traders and senior management get much better insight in the market risks in the trading books and can manage these better.


With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Our Market Risk Methodology team brings talented people together to develop and maintain Rabobank’s market risk framework. With you as a Senior Risk Manager Methodology the team will consist of 11 diverse colleagues in a variety of roles, including:


Niels Zagers, Senior Risk Manager Methodology: “It is a pleasure to work in an international team with motivated and skilled experts. Our task is first of all to provide sound methodologies for risk monitoring and management. We are also responsible for capital calculations and we are the point of contact for the regulator for Market Risk. In this team regulatory requirements, quantitative models, financial products, (big) data, and number crunching all come together. If you enjoy that like me, you will enjoy helping us to design and implement our risk framework, but even more it will be rewarding to see how your work is used in daily practice.”


Tetiana Nemchenko, Senior Risk Manager Methodology: “My current position provides me with supportive and knowledgeable colleagues, constant motivation to improve my market risk knowledge and a broad variety of interesting market risk modelling topics to work on, that include, but are not limited to Incremental Risk Charge modelling, Stress testing, Risk not in Model and VaR framework. My daily work is done in close collaboration with model validation, IT departments and risk management on the trading floor.
