Job purpose

The ACT Team within Quantitative Risk and Stress Testing (QRS) has the mandate to create, validate, test, document, implement, and/or oversee usage of complex statistical models. The models may cover a variety of products or services, however, all models are used as part of the financial decision-making process. Specific results focus on documenting the creation and/or testing of advanced statistical models and communicating such models to stakeholders within the Bank. The team’s deliverables include the creation of model development and/or validation documentation such as: presentations, written reports, model or reporting code documentation, business requirements, monitoring reports and related code, and procedures. The team is highly technical and also requires significant interaction with US domestic and foreign regulators (OCC, FRB, PRA, BaFin, etc…) along with the ability to articulate complex concepts in a straight forward manner.

The main mandate of the ACT team is to replace the use of external consultants within QRS for Regulatory Remediation activities within any of the 10 different Quantitative teams within QRS, this occurs as short term (up to a few months) assignments on specific remediation efforts where the ACT team is embedded within specific teams within QRS to address regulatory findings.
