About the project

The Financial Risk Model Development department is an international team of 80 highly qualified professionals. Our expertise lies in the development and management of credit risk, ALM and operational risk models. To further strengthen and develop the modelling capabilities, ING decided to setup Risk Hub Warsaw. The Risk Hub Warsaw model development team will be performing model development activities for models throughout ING, working closely together on international projects with the teams in Amsterdam. The developed ALM models are core to the success of ING and include behavior models (e.g. prepayment models) and replication (hedging) models. The models are used by all local Risk Management units within ING. As a specialist in ALM modelling, you will be given the opportunity to gain further experience in ALM modelling topics, using state-of-the-art modelling methods, tooling and data processing technologies.
