  • Summary:

    The Model Analysis Group (MAG) is a growing team within Risk Modeling and Analytics (RMA) . It is responsible for all post model development analytics related to models developed by RMA teams, including Ongoing Performance Assessments (OPA), Annual Model Reviews (AMR), and Revalidations.

    Members of the MAG will be actively involved in different aspects of the model lifecycle.  A typical model goes through different stages: design, calibration, testing, documentation, validation, implementation, monitoring and back to re-design and re-calibration when relevant assumptions change or monitoring indicates performance issues.  OPAs and AMRs are critical stages of the model lifecycle to determine model performance (model use and monitoring) that can trigger model re-design or re-calibration by identifying critical issues.

    Thus the job is related to a critical stage/decision point; essentially whether or not the model can still be used, which in turn has a material impact on resources, timelines, and deliverables.

    Key mandates also include driving productivity enhancements in Model Analysis through innovation.  The MAG will leverage cutting edge software and technology to reimagine the way we currently execute on this crucial phase of the model lifecycle, to the benefit of our partners, including model sponsors, developers, and Model Risk Management.

    As the MAG spans all RMA models, members of the MAG will have the opportunity to become well-versed in multiple risk stripes, with such skills training enhancing their mobility and growth potential within RMA and the larger Risk organization.

    The position will work very closely with others in the MAG, including the Head of MAG who reports to the head of RMA.  RMA develops risk analytics for use by Risk, Finance and Product and Client Coverage teams on a global basis. The head of RMA reports to the Finance Chief Risk Officer.
