  • Developing a deep understanding of both firmwide and key legal entity Capital requirements.
  • Running analytics projects around Capital and RWA, for both historic and projected values.

  • Collaborating across teams and geographies to leverage data, build analytical tools, as well as to help design and build the next generation of predictive models.
  • Overseeing firmwide and key legal entity planning and assisting in the determination of best deployment of funding throughout the whole group.
