Country Risk Manager
Our Country Risk team in our Global Sydney Head office is growing and we are looking to add an additional member to the team, at the Manager level as a specialist to focus on our APAC region. Country Risk is part of Macquarie's Credit Risk function within the Risk Management Group. The Country Risk team is responsible for assessing, approving and monitoring country risk undertaken by Macquarie.
It is a global team, with members across Macquarie's offices in Australia, Singapore, the US and UK. In this role you will have the opportunity to form a view on the economic, political and business environment outlook for countries within your remit and use this to determine appetite for country risk exposure. Through this work you will follow developments across APAC both relating to economic and political changes as well as changes within the financial markets.
You will also have the opportunity to contribute to bank wide stress testing through the creation of scenario narrative and forecasting key economic variables. You'll also experience working with several businesses across the bank, including emerging market bond and stock trading, treasury functions, debt and equity investments and asset leasing. You will bring with you a strong interest and understanding of the financial markets as well as a background in economics, including econometrics and the ability to conduct macroeconomic forecasting.
An excellent working knowledge of both political and economic issues that could affect the APAC region would be advantageous to this role. As you will liaise with multiple business stakeholders and have direct exposure to senior management, you will need exceptional communication skills both verbal and written. You will need to display the ability to think outside the box so that you can adapt your style when working with a variety of different businesses across the group.
