Duties and responsibilities


The Credit Risk Analyst will be responsible for maintaining an accurate portfolio dataset of financial information on the Borrowers in the portfolio for IFRS9 reporting purposes in addition to undertaking the independent review of corporate credits throughout their life cycle as part of the ongoing portfolio monitoring process.


The management of the IFRS9 credit dataset will involve second line of defence validation of information provided by the Credit and Investments team for inclusion in Moody’s RiskCalc model.


The Credit Risk Analyst will be expected to take ownership of the accuracy of the data and be the primary point of contact / ‘local champion’ for this portfolio data, as well as providing recommendations on credit classifications and IFRS9 staging criteria.

Periodic review runs to a monthly cycle, with an additional level of depth once a quarter. The latter will include:

Identification of key names for the most detailed review

Monitoring exposures for any significant increases of credit risk (“SICR”) and non-performing exposure (“Default”) triggers.

Ensuring that meeting materials are accurate and sufficient to allow Committee to make informed decisions on the appropriate course of action, discussing with others in advance as above

Making recommendations for credit provisioning or write-off if appropriate

Responding to ad hoc requests from Senior Management and external stakeholders and undertaking project work as and when requested
