Your day at RiskQuest
Start of the day
08:30 - 09:30Today I will work from out office at the Herengracht. The majority of the team members at my current project are working at RiskQuest. Therefore, it is nice to work from our office with the team. Especially, since some banks have less office space available. I start the day with a cup of tea, having a chat with colleagues and checking my e-mail.
Meeting: Day Start
09:30 - 12:00As modelling lead, I will be part of multiple day starts. Luckily, I am able to plan them myself. I prefer to keep them short and plan some meetings afterwards to go into results in more detail. It is a busy morning with multiple meetings with stakeholders. We are currently collecting detailed loss information and we have to explain to the model owners what we are doing.
12:00 - 12:30Today I go for a ‘Tosti’, with cheese and tomato. Furthermore, I take additional food for the rest of the day.
12:30 - 13:30I start the afternoon with a coaching meeting with one of my coachees. We will have a coffee in the city centre of Amsterdam and discuss a variety of topics: work, future project, ambitions, but also the status of our building projects (since we both build a house).
Technical and stream leed meeting
13:30 - 16:00My favourite moment of the day is the technical meeting in front of the whiteboard. Today we discuss joint exposures within our non-retail portfolio and how to treat these in out model. Furthermore, we discuss where we can retrieve additional data needed for this approach.
16:00 - 17:30At the end of the day we have or management team meeting for FRM within RiskQuest. We discuss new project requests and how to staff them. We also investigate actions for the long run
The colleagues of Risk
At RiskQuest you can make a meaningful impact from day one, while working with the biggest players in the industry. Learning and development is at the centre of what we do, and is propelled by a diverse and experienced group of colleagues. We celebrate success and work as a team.
The thing I like most about RiskQuest is the way in which we work. Everyone is prepared to walk the extra mile when required, but there is also time to have fun together. “Together” is basically the key aspect that describes RiskQuest best for me, which obviously makes it a very pleasant environment to work in.
