Our teams in Risk Management Group:

Our Regulatory Affairs and Aggregate Risk team is responsible for ensuring Macquarie is compliant with prudential regulation, monitoring aggregate risk across all risk types and the management of model risk. The team is comprised of three streams: Regulatory Affairs; Aggregate Risk; and Model Risk and Quantitative Analytics.

As part of one of the financial risk management divisions, you will be responsible for assessing the risk of loss on trading and non-trading activities that could have meaningful impact on the profitability of Macquarie. You will identify and monitor a wide range of risks across both new and existing business activities, and partner with the business to implement appropriate risk mitigation strategies.

In this role you will develop a broad understanding of the various industries, markets, sectors and products that Macquarie is involved in and build the skills to know how these risks can be managed.

Our Credit division's role is to assess and approve all material credit risk undertaken by Macquarie. The team analyses significant transactions and initiatives and assesses the strengths and weaknesses of new transactions to present their recommendations to Macquarie's senior management.

Our Compliance division is an independent risk management function that enables business management to fulfil their supervisory responsibilities by establishing an effective, robust compliance framework. Compliance perform an advisory, training and monitoring role in respect of the compliance risks arising from Macquarie's business activities.

Our Market Risk division assesses, monitors and reports on the risk of change in the value of Macquarie’s positions as a result of changes in market conditions. The team approves and sets limits over trading strategies across all markets (equities, FX, interest rates, commodities), reporting exposures daily and escalating issues to senior management.

The Risk Surveillance division provides business surveillance to Macquarie's operating businesses and support groups. Our teams ensure risk surveillance systems, data controls, and data governance meet the risk requirements of Macquarie Business Groups.
