  • Salary: Negotiable
  • Job Type: Full time

Please view Job Description for details.

The role of the Senior Manager, Risk Measurement Assurance, will be to act as the subject matter expert for the Bank's model inventory (Model Risk Manager; MRM). MRM is the Bank's strategic IT solution for models that are in-scope of the Group Model Risk Policy (GMRP) and is used as a model inventory, workflow, and reporting tool to support modelling teams and promote adherence to the model lifecycle, and as a tool to capture, store, and report information for measuring and monitoring individual and aggregate model risk.
MRM is currently being rolled out across the Bank concurrent with the rollout of the GMRP, and therefore this is a growth role requiring project management and senior level engagement as more model types/model families and modelling teams are subject to the GMRP and models are captured into the MRM.
The primary purpose of the role is to ensure that the Bank is able to use MRM to record, monitor, and manage model risk across all models, both individually and in aggregate, for those models that have been migrated into MRM. The design and operation of MRM must meet and continue to meet GMRP requirements.
