NN Belgium is looking for a Risk Professional to join its Financial & Insurance Risk Management team. This team is responsible for managing the risks embedded in NN Belgium's insurance activities

Your tasks will mainly involve the management of market risks (including interest rate, liquidity, spread, equity and real estate risks). The team's role is to model these risks and ensure that the company is managed within the organisation's risk appetite. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with excellent analytical skills. Do you have a keen interest in asset management, quantitative finance and risk modelling? Do you have at least five to ten years' experience in ALM, Asset or Risk Management? And would you enjoy working with motivated colleagues from different departments within NN Belgium, such as Actuarial Reporting, Finance, Pricing, etc., and with colleagues from other countries?
