You are a Risk Officer Restriction Control who knows the financial industry inside out and you have always had a passion for investment management. Do you have a can-do mentality and do you thrive in an international and dynamic work environment that requires you to react quickly to economic, financial and political developments around the world? Do you have strong communication and analytical skills, and have the ability to easily find your way within our organization? Then we have the right position for you.
Your department and challenge
NN IP Risk Management is responsible for the risk oversight on the NN IP fund ranges in the various jurisdictions and our mandate clients both internal and external (total AUM 280bn). Our Risk Management organization is divided into two departments Financial Risk and Operational Risk Management. The Financial Risk team is split into four separate teams, Credit & Counterparty Risk, Performance Attribution & Analytics, Investment Risk and Investment Restriction Control.
The vacancy is within the Investment Restriction Control team. In your role you are responsible for examining the issues behind the questions in-depth, which leads you to new insights, helping you to translate investment contracts into investment restrictions. Your challenge? An unambiguous legal interpretation of the rules.
Your added value as a Risk Officer Restriction Control at NN IP
Every new client comes with a new contract with investment guidelines. Existing clients also regularly change contract guidelines. You must read the contracts accurately. These contracts are in English as well as in Dutch, so excellent knowledge of both languages is critical. Regulators impose investment restrictions to the financial industry by new and updated regulations like UCITS. All these guidelines need translation into investment restrictions. The Blackrock Aladdin system is used for that. Automation appeals to you and you will test (new) investment restrictions within Aladdin. You discuss improvements and developments to the system with Blackrock. If your work is flawless, the investors can make the right investment decisions. If they don’t, the system will give a warning for which your advice can be requested.
You analyze and discuss automated reported issues each day with Portfolio Managers and when needed with Sales and Compliance. You ensure that resolutions of issues are executed within the given timelines. By doing this, you will strengthen our Investment Restriction Control team, which is part of the Risk Management Department with a total of 50 employees.
