(Senior) Recovery & Resolution Professional

Job Description
Risk & Capital Integration (RCI) is a staff department within the Risk domain directly reporting to the Chief Risk Officer (CRO). Its mission is to provide and promote a consolidated and consistent risk framework at ING Group level and to support the application of this framework within different dimensions of the group. To accomplish this, RCI plays a role with respect to various topics, such as:

  • Recovery and Resolution Planning: In response to the crisis ING has set up an all-encompassing group wide Recovery Plan to enhance the bank's readiness and decisiveness to tackle financial crises on its own strength. Furthermore, ING provides information on the basis of which the Resolution Authorities are to develop a Resolution Plan. Moreover, ING is increasing its resolvability by implementing the necessary financial, legal and operational preconditions. It is RCIs objective together with several Finance and Risk departments, Group Treasury and the business, to develop effective Plans that fulfil regulatory requirements and take the necessary steps to become resolvable.
  • Risk Appetite Framework: With respect to risk appetite setting, RCI is responsible for the preparation of the proposal of the high level risk appetite statements to the Executive Board, and also for the preparation of the periodical report which shows whether or not the actual risk profile is in line with these risk appetite statements. For this purpose RCI, has developed so-called risk dashboards which provide consolidated values for several risk metrics taking into account the different risk types such as credit risk, market risk, operational risk and business risk.
  • Stress testing: This has become a very important risk management tool during the past years. ING performs both internally and externally defined stress tests, for which RCI coordinates/carries out the selection of scenarios, consolidation of the results, presentation of these results to senior management, communication with regulators and other stakeholders, etcetera.
  • New regulations: As a response to the financial crisis, banks are confronted with an ongoing amount of new regulations (Basel IV, CRR/CRDIV amendments, etc). RCI is, together with other finance and risk departments, responsible for making sure that we are prepared for these regulations, and that these are properly reflected in future capital projections.
  • Peer analyses: It is of paramount importance that we are aware of developments within other financial institutions with respect to e.g. solvency, liquidity, balance sheet development, loan loss provisioning and MREL/TLAC. Therefore, RCI regularly performs peer comparisons to identify developments within other banks, and potentially areas where ING is an outlier. Disclosures: RCI coordinates the risk related disclosures in the annual and quarterly reports. Furthermore, RCI provides risk information to amongst others the Investor Relations department and coordinates information requests from regulators and rating agencies.
