Senior Associate - Banking & Capital Markets - Prudential Regulation
Posted on Jan 16, 2019 by PWC-1
About the role
The prudential regulatory regime continues to evolve with developments such as CRDV and 'Basel IV' as well as in recovery and resolution planning, creating continued demands on the Regulatory, Risk and Finance teams in banks and investment firms.
This, coupled with increased supervisory scrutiny over ongoing compliance (e.g. Skilled Persons Reports and the Senior Managers Regime) has presented challenges for firms both for ongoing compliance and also from a more strategic perspective. Firms need technical and practical advice on how to adapt to these changes and assess the impact of the wider prudential reform agenda whilst meeting 'business as usual' regulatory expectations.
We are looking for candidates who have regulatory technical knowledge and experience, including the associated technical rules and guidance, in one of the following:
- Credit, counterparty credit and / or market risk regulatory capital requirements.
- This may also include the associated regulatory reporting (e.g. PRA and COREP returns); or
