Job Description

The Risk division is responsible for credit, market and operational risk, model risk, independent liquidity risk, and insurance throughout the firm.

The Risk Business identifies, monitors, evaluates, and manages the firm’s financial and non-financial
risks in support of the firm’s Risk Appetite Statement and the firm’s strategic plan. Operating in a fast
paced and dynamic environment and utilizing the best in class risk tools and frameworks, Risk teams are
analytically curious, have an aptitude to challenge, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.

BUSINESS UNIT: The Model Risk Management (MRM) group is a multidisciplinary group of quantitative
experts at Goldman Sachs with presence in New York, Dallas, London, Warsaw, Hong Kong, and
Bangalore. The MRM group is responsible for independent oversight of Model Risk at the firm, ensuring
compliance with Firmwide Policy on Model Control and related standards, including documentation to
evidence effective challenge over the Model development, implementation and usage of Models.
The group’s primary mandate is to manage risk that arises from models used in the firm through its range
of businesses– from models used for derivatives valuation to models used for risk management, liquidity
and capital computations. In addition to independently reviewing these classes of models for their validity,
theoretical consistency and implementation accuracy, the group is also responsible to assess the risk
associated with model choice, e.g., exposure to choice of model in various contexts such as pricing exotic
options or in calculating capital.
The analysis and reporting team is a new function within the MRM group that is responsible for analyzing,
monitoring and reporting on model risk for the firm. The group works collaboratively with the model
validation team to understand and communicate results of model validation activities, changes in model
risk and other model-related issues to key stakeholders and management.

This business is ideal for collaborative individuals who have strong ethics and attention to detail. Whether
assessing the creditworthiness of the firm’s counterparties, monitoring market risks associated with
trading activities, or offering analytical and regulatory compliance support, our work contributes directly to
the firm’s success.
The MRM group looks for people with strong quantitative and technical backgrounds and a strong interest
in financial markets. We seek bright and dynamic individuals with a degree in quantitative fields such as
math, physics, engineering, computer science, or financial engineering.

• Perform validation and approval of the firm’s models by verifying conceptual soundness,
methodology, and implementation, and by identifying limitations and uncertainties
• Assess and quantify model risk by developing alternative benchmark models
• Oversee monitoring of ongoing model performance
• Communicate validation outcomes to key stakeholders and management
