We are currently looking for a Nearly/Newly Qualified Actuary to join our Risk Analytics `Internal Model Production Team' as a Financial Engineer.

As a Financial Engineer you will be responsible for producing results from the Internal Model for the Group’s Regulatory Capital Reporting and for a wide range of ad-hoc purposes as requested by our colleagues in both Legal & General Retirement Institutional (LGRI) and elsewhere across the Group. This will include supporting the analysis of change in capital results and performing capital calculations for `what-if' scenarios, such as market stresses or potential impacts of writing new business. 

You will also get involved with Internal Model change through testing model developments and helping to ensure their smooth transition into production.

This is a hybrid working opportunity, which means you can split your working week flexibly between your home and our London office in Moorgate to help achieve a work-life balance which suits you.

  • Assisting with customer queries on the Internal Model to support capital reporting teams with their understanding of the model and analysis of results.
  • Advising team members and Business Unit teams on complex issues surrounding risk management and capital modelling.
  • Supporting the validation of asset results from the Internal Model for profit-and-loss attribution and the validation of capital results.
  • Testing Internal Model changes, in collaboration with the development team and relevant stakeholders in Risk Analytics or the Business Units to ensure that model changes are fit for purpose and follow the required Internal Model governance.     
  • Training others in the team and maintaining appropriate process documentation for supporting the development of others and mitigating any key person risk.
  • Responding appropriately to any TCF (Treating Customers Fairly) issues which may arise, to support compliance with TCF regulations.  

What were looking for

  • Qualified Life Actuary, or Nearly-Qualified Actuary with sufficient experience.
  • Knowledge of the Solvency II regulations governing the calculation of capital requirements.
  • Understanding of the key risk exposures for different types of life insurance products, i.e. the drivers of capital for different types of assets or liabilities.
  • Understanding of requirements for Business Units analysis-of-change and what-if requests to ensure these are analysed and actioned appropriately.
  • Competency within model configuration and setting up inputs with a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • Understanding of risk modelling or risk management processes. And liaising with internal groups to identify and support the development of new risk management approaches.
  • Experience and confidence in working with financial models, at a technical level and with analysing results.
  • Effective communication with others in Risk Analytics and our business customers to understand their requirements and for dealing with queries.
  • Ability to identify potential improvements to processes or the quality of deliveries, and provide input into potential solutions.
  • A focus on delivery and attention to detail for ensuring high quality deliveries.
  • Ability to estimate and manage own work to keep within planned timescales
  • Some past software development experience or coding skills (Algo RiskWatch, Python, C++, VBA or other languages) would be advantageous
