Do you want to be part of a company that advises an international client base that consists of pension funds, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, banks, and asset managers? Do you excel at simplifying and solving complex problems? Are you client-oriented and do you want to build your consulting expertise? Do you enjoy following global economic developments and financial news?
Join us as Quantitative Consultant Scenarios and Asset Valuation!
What will you do as a consultant?
As a consultant, you will be responsible for helping our clients to understand and use our quantitative economic scenarios, generated by our proprietary statistical model. Our stochastic scenarios provide the projected future risk and return of asset classes such as equities, government bonds, corporate credits, and private assets. These scenarios are constructed to reflect the economic characteristics of realistic market behavior.
The quantitative economic scenarios that you will be advising on are a crucial input in the financial decision making for many applications such as ALM, risk management, and financial planning.
Example applications include analyzing exposure to which asset classes fits best with investment goals, and whether investment goals are attainable with the current strategic asset allocation.
Within this role, every day will be different, for example:
We offer you plenty of room to fully apply your talents and highly value an enterprising spirit. You will be given responsibilities immediately and you will be personally and actively mentored in the process.
The Scenarios and Asset Valuation Solution
You will be part of our Scenarios and Asset Valuation Solution, which is a group of about 25 persons. We provide both real-world and risk-neutral economic scenarios to enable our clients to manage the complexity of investment decision making. Our real-world scenarios provide risk and return projections that dynamically adjust to the latest economic and financial market circumstances. This includes the effects of ‘externalities’ such as central bank interventions or Brexit and has a global coverage of asset classes for many different regions. We achieve this by integrating characteristics of realistic market behavior (“stylized facts”) into forward-looking asset prices, yield curves, and volatilities as well as into the broader macro-economic environment. Our risk-neutral scenarios enable actuaries and finance professionals to perform market-consistent valuations of optionality in insurance liabilities and of financial contingent claims more generally. SAV is an innovative multidisciplinary group with Consultants, Quantitative Financial Analysts, and Quantitative Developers as well as Software Developers.
