Risk Modeler - NN

Location: The Hague
Salary: € 3566 - € 5095 a month
Employment: Full-time
Your most important task is to improve the models we are using to calculate capital requirements and to ensure that these models are up to date, fit for purpose, and compliant with the Solvency 2 regulation.

NN has an internal model to determine capital requirements. This model is the foundation of the management of NN Group’s risk profile and capital position. Ensuring the appropriateness and use of this model in critical business decisions is a responsibility of the Management Board of NN Group. The components of the internal model for market risk, credit risk, and aggregation methodology are maintained by the Model Development team. Join us to build and maintain these models. The Model Development team at NN Group is looking for a Risk Modeler who will develop and review these models ensuring their appropriateness and use.  We provide intellectually challenging work at one of the leading insurance group in Europe.

The Model Development team is part of the ALM & Investment Risk department of Group Risk within NN Group. This team is the owner of the centrally managed components of the internal model. These models are used to determine, under Solvency II, the amount of capital that NN has to hold for market, credit, and counterparty default risk and are an important input to managing the risks on our balance sheet. The team is also responsible for the models for risk aggregation, the valuation of financial instruments, and the replication of our liabilities.

The Model Development team is responsible for both - methodology development and calibration; and for monitoring to ensure the ongoing appropriateness of the models. For this purpose, the team interacts regularly with the regulator (DNB), Model Validation, and auditors. Next to the development and calibration of risk models, close cooperation with Business Units and our Investment Office are important responsibilities of the team. The team works closely with these functions to make sure that the models accurately reflect our risk profile, but also supports them in using the models to manage risks and take decisions.

The position of a Risk Modeler offers you a monthly salary of a minimum of €3.566,- and a maximum of €5.095,- depending on your experience. This is based on a 36-hour work week, excluding a 13th month and holiday allowance. For exceptionally well-qualified candidates we can offer a salary of up to €6.009,- based on 36 hours per week.  

Your impact as Risk Modeler at NN

Your most important task is to improve the models we are using to calculate capital requirements and to ensure that these models are up to date, fit for purpose, and compliant with the Solvency 2 regulation. Because of your broad experience and project management skills, you lead and coordinate regular model reviews for centrally developed components of our Internal Model aligning with all relevant stakeholders, including Business Units and the Group Model Committee. Next to this, you also work on the models yourself improving the modelling continuously and providing appropriate and pragmatic solutions to address Model Validation and regulatory findings. Whenever Business Units or other staff departments require our support, you share your expertise and guide them in using the internal model for optimizing the market risk profile and managing risks.

Your responsibilities

Your main responsibility is to improve and maintain components of  NN’s internal model. This includes the following tasks:

  • Support the full scope of model development from methodology definition, and calibration, to approval, validation, and addressing validation findings. Ensure that the processes for recalibrating and changing the models are efficient and robust
  • Help to ensure that the models maintained by the Model Development team are well documented, up to date, fit for purpose, and compliant with the regulation
  • Support the use of the models maintained by Model Development by our Investment Office and Business Units
  • Perform in cooperation with other team members and Model Validation regular model reviews to update the models, address outstanding findings, and implement further improvements
  • Lead and maintain a constructive dialogue with technical experts and support the communication with senior staff members from NN within and outside risk and with external stakeholders

  • Prior experience with developing, maintaining, or reviewing financial models

Your colleagues

The Risk Modelling Team is young, energetic, and very international. Each member is a highly qualified expert on a specific risk area, and have backgrounds as mathematician, econometrist, or actuary. The team likes to challenge itself, and within NN has been at the forefront of the implementation and approval of NN’s internal model according to the Solvency 2 regulation. We work closely together, while at the same time we entrust our team members with executing projects independently. Week starts with a stand-up to check in with each other and get a perspective on the main challenges in the coming week. Our work atmosphere is fun and informal.
