Financial risk management
One of DNB's tasks is to issue warnings about financial risks that have the potential to harm the entire financial system. You will identify these risks and work with your colleagues to address them effectively.
The financial sector is facing major challenges: historically low interest rates, new international legislation and regulations and the proliferation of new FinTech companies and crypto service providers. As a specialist in the area of financial risk, you will help us to get a grip on current and new risks by identifying, analysing and mitigating them.
Advising on risks
Our risk management specialists conduct their research both at DNB headquarters and on location at financial institutions, taking both a quantitative and qualitative approach to their analyses. They summarise the results of their research in unambiguous opinions and recommendations. For example, they issue recommendations for financial institutions on maintaining additional buffers, they publish opinions on mortgage lending practices and they call for effective and timely climate policies.
Does risk management appeal to you?
Financial risk managers are active throughout the entire DNB organisation. In many cases, these specialists have a financial/economic background, but this is not necessarily a prerequisite to become engaged in financial risk management. That said, each and every one of them is a highly intelligent, critical team player. They feel a keen engagement with society as stewards of financial stability, and they always keep an eye out for risks that may endanger the system.
