New technologies, new data sources and data driven solutions create an enormous amount of opportunities. On the flip side, these opportunities result in competition from unexpected parties on a high pace. ABN AMRO intends to make a step forward by exploiting these new opportunities and strengthen the competitive position. Risk Modelling has the ambition to develop risk models that enable offering our clients a sustainable price that matches their risk profile. The team has the ambition to be leading and on the cutting edge.

Your working environment

ABN AMRO Risk Modelling is an international team of more than 90 professionals.

We want our clients to understand our products. This is why we sometimes say 'no' if the risk attached to a product is too great for the client.
