Job description

All models for derivatives values and risk sensitivities need to be approved by PA before they can be used for official purposes by ABN AMRO. We challenge mathematical assumptions behind the model, and examine the accuracy and completeness of the implementation before a model can be used for trading purposes. The results of a PA validation constitute an expert opinion within Risk Management and thus important information for the Risk committees of ABN AMRO and its higher management.
