Quantitative Risk Consultant/Senior Consultant, Risk Advisory, Zurich (80-100%)
Deloitte Risk, Capital and Liquidity Advisory
The financial services industry is adjusting to significant structural changes that policymakers promote as a response to the recent crisis. Banks are still increasing their capital and liquidity buffers, and are implementing numerous other changes as required by new regulation. While banks become more resilient, they are also facing pressure on profitability as a consequence of higher capital costs. Alongside regulatory changes, banks business models are challenged by digitalisation and adverse market conditions such as negative interest rates.
Banks respond to these challenges by taking a closer look at the validity of their business model, their assumptions regarding risk appetite, and their allocation of financial resources to lines of business. These activities supporting a bank’s strategy have at its core evaluation and monitoring using increasingly complex quantitative models.
The services offered by our team support banks to develop such models, and are tailored to the needs of Risk, Treasury and Front Office at the most sophisticated banks.
