European Regulatory Affairs and Aggregate Risk – 6 month fixed term contract
We have an exciting opportunity for a contractor in fixed term capacity (6 months contract), to join our European Regulatory Affairs and Aggregate Risk (RAAR) team in our Risk Management Group. The RAAR team in the EMEA region is focused on prudential rule interpretation for local regulated entities (including a UK and European Bank and a number of UK and European Investment and Asset Management Firms), stress testing and economic capital for the non-bank group. The role provides the opportunity to gain broad exposure to the activities of Macquarie divisions operating in the region and to build close relationships with these businesses and other support functions.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Provide advice and prudential interpretations (primarily capital, large exposures and leverage) around the forthcoming changes in European regulation framework within Capital Requirements Regulation/ Capital Requirements Directive (CRD IV and CRD V) and Investment Firm Regulation / Investment Firm Directive legislative packages;
  • Develop prudential interpretations framework documentation and supporting governance, and ensure appropriate log of ongoing interpretations within this agreed framework;
  • Work cohesively with Finance and Treasury teams on the implementation aspects of these regulatory change projects;
  • Contribute prudential aspects to key stakeholder reporting / updates relating to these regulatory change projects (inc. to CRR2/CRD V and IFR/IFD Steering Committees)
  • Advise on compliance with the European prudential rules (current and future) across a diverse range of new business, product and fund proposals in the EMEA region
  • Monitor and capture developments in UK and European prudential standards (in addition to the aforementioned regulatory change projects) and assess the forward-looking implications for Macquarie's prudentially regulated EMEA entities.

Being part of a small team means that you may be required to assist in reviewing and producing other regulatory documents and policies including the ICAAP, Recovery Plan, Wind Down Plan, Risk Appetite Statements and other Risk and Capital Management documents.

We are looking for candidates who have detailed regulatory technical knowledge and experience on the current UK and EU prudential regime, including in the following, primarily from prudential capital perspective:
  • CRD V
  • PRA/FCA Rule book/Supervisory Statements/ Publications
  • EBA/ECB guidance

You have the ability to exercise judgement as to how the prudential rules apply to the different size and scale of entities in the EMEA group. You have a demonstrated ability to work as a team with strong relationship management skills and an ability to interface with a broad cross-section of individuals. You are a persuasive communicator, interpersonal with the ability to build relationships at all levels whilst promoting a strong compliance culture will be key to your success. You enjoy working autonomously, can determine priorities and able to deliver results within deadlines. You will also have a pragmatic, commercial approach to risk and compliance whilst achieving desired outcomes.
