What difference will you make as Risk Analyst at NN?

As Risk Analyst, you’ll be part of the Financial & Insurance Risk Management team that is responsible for managing the risks inherent to NN’s insurance business. As an insurance expert with a talent for calculating and evaluating financial movements, you analyse trends and developments in customer behaviour, financial markets and quantify the consequences for NN.

In your role you will review the key financials of NN and provide the team with proposals for improvements. The team of 30 members shares expertise on asset valuation, Solvency II & IFRS reporting, cash flow modelling and assumption setting.

  • As senior analyst, you are not only working on your own success, but also that of your colleagues. For example, you share your expertise with others and encourage the growth and development of the people you work with.
  • You optimise the risk profile, on both sides of the balance sheet. By reviewing the effect of various strategic and tactical asset allocations from a risk/return perspective, as well as optimising the value creation of the life insurance obligations NN holds and plans to sell.
  • You will work closely with senior management and report to them about financial movements, strategic developments and growth opportunities.
  • You keep a close eye on changes to regulations and standards in the sector (particularly Solvency II, IFRS, Belgian GAAP, etc.). Your advice the impact they may have on our business will be leveraged to steer further refinements in the team and the company’s strategy.
  • To achieve this, you coordinate and centralize inputs & calculations from different team members and departments and ensure the impact of strategic discussion and/or (external) events is clearly reflected in the key financial indicators that are used by senior management in their decision making.
  • Your skills to turn available data into meaningful and interactive reports will constantly be put to the test. You’re always thinking about the next insight and structure your analysis in such a way that they can be easily “sliced and diced” to provide additional clarification.

What are the qualities of our ideal Senior Risk Analyst?

Your interest in asset management, financial analysis and life insurance liability modelling is an important first requirement, but as senior risk analyst, you also have what it take to take your colleagues to the next level.

  • A university degree in a quantitative subject (economics, mathematics, physics, actuarial or engineering sciences)
  • Strong work experience, with a minimum of 5 years in ALM, Asset or Risk Management
  • An in-depth understanding of the various financial instruments and asset classes
  • You speak and write fluent English and Dutch or French

Although numbers excite you, going through financials all day will not be enough. The work you will be doing requires a high degree of teamwork. The ideal addition to the team will be a supportive and assertive person who has good communication skills. You enjoy helping other people and your own curiosity does not prevent you from asking for help yourself and so expand your knowledge.
