The successful candidate for this role will contribute to developing analytical tools that are developed for ICAAP and Trading Wind Down (TWD) exercises, as well as provide the analytical support required by the size and complexity of Citi’s UK legal entities. This includes the development of new models they are fit-for-purpose at the legal entity level when new regional solutions are deemed appropriate.
