The US Retail Expected Loss Model Development group within the TD Bank Group (TDBG) Model Development department is responsible for modelling credit risk in all TDBG US retail credit product portfolios (including mortgages, home equity products, indirect auto loans, credit cards, and small business products).
In this position, the individual will be responsible for the development, initial validation, documentation, and support in all stages of audit, implementation and ongoing monitoring of account-level models for credit risk parameters (PD, EAD, and LGD) for all TDBG US retail credit product portfolios. The individual will also be responsible for updating/re-developing existing models for these portfolios as required.
These predictive models serve as the basis for establishing default, exposure and loss parameter estimates for use in calculating Risk-Weighted Assets (RWA) for TDBG US retail credit exposures under the Basel II AIRB approach. They will also be used to calculate loan loss allowance and economic capital for these portfolios, as well as calculate expected credit losses, RWA, loan loss allowance and economic capital under various macroeconomic scenarios included in the Bank's internal and regulatory stress tests.
The position will involve interactions with TDBG Model Validation, Model Risk Management, Internal Audit, and external auditors, as well as with the Bank's Canadian (OSFI) and US (OCC and FED) banking regulators, in order to support their review and approval process for the risk parameter models. The position will ensure compliance with the TDBG Model Risk Policy, Capital Model Approval Policy, Data Governance requirements, and other relevant policies and regulatory requirements.
The individual will closely work with and actively support TDBG Retail Risk Management, as well as retail credit product and finance areas by providing a deep analysis of credit risk drivers and parameters under various scenarios for the respective US retail credit portfolios. This will entail discussing key observations and conclusions derived from the data analysis and modelling with the various retail credit product, finance, and risk management groups, and assisting these groups in managing product portfolio risk and profitability.
The individual will use leading-edge technologies and develop innovative solutions in the following areas: -Data mining by making sense of large databases of historical data related to credit risk; -Predictive credit risk modelling based on rigorous statistical analyses of historical data, regression techniques, and econometric analyses; -Estimating credit risk embedded in the Bank's US retail credit product portfolios, as well as the amount of regulatory and economic capital the Bank needs to allocate against these portfolios.
This position provides excellent learning, working and career opportunities in a highly professional and motivated team environment, as well as exposure to a variety of high-paced and intensive modelling projects and a variety of internal and external stakeholders.
This position requires a combination of dedication, extremely hard work, and attention to detail on one hand, as well as quick learning, creativity, and non-standard thinking on the other. The technical skills and experience required for this position include a strong mathematical, statistical, and computer science background, as well as experience with data mining and statistical modelling. This position also requires the ability to lead a model development project and guide modelling analysts and co-op students.
A successful candidate is expected to have: - A university degree in Statistics or a related quantitative discipline (Mathematics, Actuarial Science, Computer Science, Econometrics, Operations research); - Strong working knowledge and hands-on experience using SAS or SQL in the context of data manipulation, data mining, statistical analysis, and predictive modelling; - Proficiency in creating and manipulating large datasets for data mining and predictive statistical modelling; - Strong knowledge of modern statistical model development and validation concepts and techniques (particularly linear and logistic regression); - Strong problem-solving skills, with the ability to independently identify and solve problems in an effective and timely manner; - Strong project management skills, with the ability to successfully work with multiple stakeholders to achieve the group's objectives; - Strong communication skills (both written and oral), with the ability to effectively present technical, business, and project management subjects to multiple stakeholders. - A solid track record of successful development, initial validation, documentation, and implementation of predictive statistical models; - 3+ years of work experience in the retail banking industry, and a working knowledge of retail credit products, policies, practices, and strategies; - A solid knowledge of concepts and methodologies used in Expected and Unexpected Loss, Allowance, Economic Capital, and regulatory stress testing for retail credit exposures; - A working knowledge of concepts and methodologies (such as retail credit risk scoring techniques) used in the assessment of credit risk for retail credit exposures; - 3+ years of experience with retail credit risk data, analytics, and risk modelling; - A solid knowledge of Basel II requirements, including hands-on experience in developing and implementing Basel II Retail AIRB models; - Strong leadership skills and demonstrated ability and willingness to teach, guide, and lead modelling analysts and co-op students.
