Model Risk Auditor
Adequate internal model development, independent model validation and effective monitoring are integral components of model risk management in today's highly regulated financial environment. Within ING we share a strong sense of responsibility for improving the effectiveness of processes that control the risks we are facing as a financial institution. Ultimately, this protects the interests of ING's external clients.
Corporate Audit Services (CAS) conducts and coordinates audits within the area of Model Risk Management. The Model Risk Auditor will be part of a dedicated Model Risk team, which will support the various audit teams across the world on effectively assessing the components of the model life cycle (design, development, validation, implementation, monitoring) for both regulatory and non-regulatory models.
As a Model Risk Auditor you will be assessing dedicated models as well as covering model risks during product and risk management audits, together with a team of auditors and risk specialists. Your audit procedures will consist of well-known validation and test techniques for both regulatory (e.g. AIRB, VAR/Expected Shortfall, IMM) as non-regulatory models (amongst others application, Pricing/Valuation, IFRS models, Machine Learning/AI). Audit findings are reported including suggestions for improvement and concrete recommendations, and presented to senior management.
Your counterparts in the ING organisation are working in the front office, model development, customer intelligence, risk measurement and model validation departments. In cooperation, you will challenge them towards developing to industry best practice and new modelling techniques.
