  • Built or participated actively or had a key role in the mathematical design and software development in C++ of a simulation model of at least one of the risk factor required for EPE.
  • Depth experience in modelling the EPE.
  • Must have built a simulation model for at least one of the risk factor required for EPE modelling. C++. EPE modelling is the DNA of both Counterparty Credit Risk (CCR) and XVA.
  • Ideally previously involved in successful regulatory submissions (successful ECB submission is a plus).
  • Clear and demonstrable familiarity with key risk measures such as CVA, EPE, PFE. (Minimum Masters level in Math/Computer Science/Engineering discipline.)
  • Excellent understanding of Stochastic Calculus applied to quantitative finance and numerical optimisation technics.
  • Ability to break methodology design in atomic testable blocks that can be implemented in automated testing suite.
