Credit Risk Control Unit Expert

Medewerker | Risk Management | Ervaren | Amsterdam | 2020-03-10 | REQ-10026473


The Credit Risk Control Unit (CRCU) is a new central team which is being set up to enhance the end to end oversight on the development and use of Rating systems in line with the requirements of Art. 190 of the Capital Requirement Regulation (CRR). The Rating Systems, including the credit risk models play a crucial role in the key decisions within the bank and as such this is an exciting opportunity to be part of a new team that works towards improving INGs credit risk model landscape and the use of models.

The CRCU is set up to be independent from the personnel and management functions responsible for originating or renewing exposures. It is responsible for the design or selection, implementation, oversight and performance of rating systems. The CRCU will provide advice on the RWA impact of decisions on rating systems, challenge model development choices, review and escalate any observations on the use of rating systems to senior management. The CRCU works with a broad range of stakeholders which include internal stakeholders in front office, credit risk decision-making, model development, model risk management, governance & regulations and internal audit.

The CRCU is part of the Financial Risk (FR) department. FR consists of six teams - FR Analysis, FR Network, Governance & Regulations, Model Development and Treasury & Capital Management and the CRCU.

What will you do

As an expert in the CRCU you are comfortable taking an independent view while constructively working towards improving INGs Rating system landscape.

  • You know how models work and how to use them and also know the limitations of the models. You will discuss and where needed challenge the model use with the model owners and model users;

  • The CRCU will challenge and constructively engage with the stakeholders to improve INGs Rating system landscape, improve model use and credit decision processes and contribute to a timely delivery by ING on its regulatory commitments.
