Position Summary

The position will support the Commercial Banks Classifiably Managed portfolio, as an integral part of Commercials Global Risk Analytics Team, located in NY. It is the team who accommodates a number of centralized processes for CCBs global network, including the Allowance for Credit Losses (ACL), and the semi-annual Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR).

The primary focus of the position will be the development of an in-depth understanding of both the ACL (also referred to as Current Expected Credit Loss or CECL), and CCAR Model data dependencies, mapping assumptions between original data elements and secondary/derived attributes consumed by the models, and the compensating controls and proxy values for any data limitation.

We are looking for tech savvy candidates, with strong acumen over system and data flows, and ability to break a process down to its detailed components and clearly articulate hand offs and dependencies.


- Be the primary point of contact in providing assistance, guidance and training on the portfolio attributes consumed by the CECL and CCAR models.

- Develop analytical tools to help capture any data anomalies distorting the CECL or CCAR model results.

- Estimate the economic impact on ACL of any identified data errors and make offsetting overlays to the model output as necessary.

- Participate in the semi-annual CCAR stress testing process for the Commercial Banks classifiably managed portfolio, which includes ensuring completeness of the portfolio in scope, and accuracy of the core transaction level attributes that drive the model result.

- Engage in projects driven by Policy changes and/or re-engineering initiatives primary related to CECL and CCAR for classifiably managed exposures.

- Support the inclusion of the CECL considerations into the Risk/Return profitability tools used to measure the performance of the CCB portfolio.

- Support ad hoc credit portfolio analyses and presentations to assist in Global CCB Risk Oversights portfolio management responsibilities.

Additional Data

Effective Jan 1, 2020, Citi, in compliance with the new accounting standard introduced by FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) for estimating credit losses, transitioned from US GAAP to Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL). The CECL estimation process for Commercials Wholesale loan book is accommodated by an extended number of models, consuming multi-segmented portfolio data to provide a more risk sensitive credit loss expectancy.

The CECL Model framework has many commonalities with the Model framework employed for Citis CCAR, the accuracy of each processs output being heavily dependent on the quality of the multiple data attributes fed into the models, and the validity of the assumptions to overcome any data limitations.

The role will be responsible to ensure the data owners for Commercial Banks global wholesale portfolio (Business, Independent Risk, Finance, Technology), whose system inputs affect the CECL and CCAR Models outputs, are educated on and kept consistently informed of the critical data elements, and the impact of any inaccuracies. To this effect, comprehensive walkthroughs and training materials will have to be developed, and monitoring and control mechanisms will need to be designed to enable an on-going oversight of the Commercial Wholesale portfolio data accuracy.

The positon will be responsible to inform and update Commercial Banks Senior Management of any data issues, help form and participate to groups to work out corrective plans, but will not be kept accountable for ultimate solutions that lie beyond the reach of the Independent Risk organization.

The position will work both with the team members in charge of the ACL process and those in charge of the CCAR process, exploiting synergies and promoting efficiency. Beyond the primary focus as described above, the position will support the Global Risk Analytics team in its regular and ad-hoc activities, according to the business needs, with the intent to expose the candidate to most of the teams tasks, to make him/her grow to a well-versed Commercial Credit Risk staff.
