Job Description

Banking Advisory is a core service area for KPMG China and we are looking for an Associate Director to join our Financial Risk Management practice in Hong Kong

KPMG’s Financial Risk Management (FRM) banking advisory team advises clients on the development and implementation of risk management policies, systems, solutions, and controls.

Our scope of work covers the full spectrum of financial risks, such as credit risk, market risk, operational risk and liquidity risk; economic capital, capital management, stress testing, risk modeling and validation; regulatory compliance issues; and the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing.

Areas of focus include local capital standards such as the HKMA's Banking Capital Rules and the SFC's Financial Resources Rules.  Clients include local and foreign financial institutions.
