Contribute to effective supervision of insurance companies as a quantitative risk management specialist at DNB using analyses of complex financial models.

Jij hebt impact

Your impact
Working for DNB, you will have an impact on financial stability and sustainable prosperity. Prudential supervision of financial institutions, like insurance companies, is a key building block in maintaining the integrity of the financial system. With your expertise you will promote the soundness of financial institutions in order to provide appropriate protection for policyholders. You have a sharp eye for understanding the essence of complex quantitative issues and getting to the heart of the matter. This means you will have a direct impact on the sector!
This is what you will do as a quantitative risk management specialist at DNB

You will take part in or lead in-depth examinations and projects, both on site at institutions and from your desk at DNB. You will interview institutions’ boards, senior management and staff members to identify and understand underlying challenges. Such examinations will focus primarily on internal models and the risk management frameworks of insurers and pension funds. You also regularly carry out assignments for other DNB divisions, such as Supervision Policy or Financial Markets.
Your most important activities: 
  • You will assess incoming requests, like the applications for approval of new or modified models, ‘gap closures’ of previously identified shortcomings or declarations of no-objection.
  • You will translate the complex information into clear analyses and thus identify the relevant risks.
  • The scope of these investigations is not limited to financial models, but could also include institutions' risk management, investment policy and/or governance.
  • You will provide input or actively participate in policy development (e.g. in EIOPA task forces).
  • You will develop assessment frameworks for specific risks or models that take into account state-of-the-art knowledge of risk models.

The Expert Centre on Financial Risk to Pension Funds (ECFRP) is a knowledge hub within the Pension Supervision Division.

We work for all these various disciplines, both in the area of pension and insurance supervision. This set-up allows you to gather knowledge and expertise quickly. We have an informal and amicable working environment. We foster professional drive and excellent opportunities for development. That is why we will invest substantially in your knowledge and skills. Seamless cooperation with your team and the other departments in and outside the division is crucial.
