Job Description
The individual that will fill this position will have a primary focus on balance sheet management risks and initiatives that span treasury risk disciplines, with a goal to understand the risk profile of State Street's assets and liabilities under a variety of economic and financial market environments, as measured on both a current and forecasted basis. Examples of areas of focus include the use of econometric models and cash-flow based valuation models in order to forecast investment portfolio credit losses, risk-weighted assets, and market values for the ~$100 BN investment portfolio, which is composed of both structured and non-structured fixed income securities across multiple asset classes and jurisdictions in the North American, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific regions.
Additionally, the recent regulatory environment has been rapidly changing, placing greater emphasis and more complex demands on State Street to develop new techniques, and enhance existing approaches, in its overall framework for risk measurement and risk management. Other areas of focus will be internal development of credit and cash flow models for structured securities, consideration of strategic implications of portfolio and balance sheet management in light of changing regulation and supervisory expectations, as well as participation in special projects and the review of new GT business initiatives to ensure business objectives are met within the firm's overall risk appetite.
Additional duties and responsibilities include:
  • Lead or support critical projects with high-impact on company results.
  • Support senior management and regulators communications.
  • Support and enhance the assessment, monitoring and reporting of liquidity and other treasury risks, and compliance with limits.
  • Document analyses and processes in place.

  • 7+ years of demonstrated expertise in banking, fixed income, structured products markets, or risk management related to those fields.
  • Bachelor's degree in economics, finance, or other related field required.
  • PhD or Master's degree in economics, finance, or other related field, with quantitative background a plus.
  • Analytical background and good knowledge of standard quantitative methods applied to finance.
  • Good understanding of financial instruments and related valuation required.
  • Proficiency in Excel/MS Applications.
  • Experience with Intex or other fixed income vendor products a plus.
  • Strong analytical skills to be applied in understanding fixed income financial models, organizing large sets of data and synthesizing complex concepts.
  • Results orientation. Willingness to work in a position with uneven and high priority project work.
  • Team player with unquestionable integrity and ethical standards.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, with ability to articulate effectively ideas and analysis to senior management.
  • Independent and critical thinking skills and strong financial acumen.
