Senior Credit Risk Model Validator

At a glance

ABN AMRO's strong reliance on models manifests itself in all areas of the bank. ABN AMRO has models in place for amongst others credit risk, market risk, operational risk, and liquidity risk, covering the entire balance sheet of the bank. The credit risk models receive significant attention in organization in coming years due to changing regulatory environment, reviewed bank's business strategy and enhanced internal standards. The Credit Risk Model Validation team provides an independent challenge of the quality and fitness of the models employed for managing the credit risks associated with lending activities of the ABN AMRO Bank, including a variety of advanced IRB models (PD, LGD, EAD), application and behavioural scorecard models for different product types and business lines. The outcome of the validation process affects every level of the organisation – from individual client acceptance to strategic  decision making and steering.
