Are you a market liquidity risk specialist looking to join a growing team? We have a key role that will focus on the portfolio for Regional Bank organizations (RBOs) in the 12th Federal Reserve District which includes institutions of varying complexity from $10 to $100 billion in total assets.

The Market/Liquidity Risk Specialist will provide financial and business analysis for the portfolio of RBOs in support of the supervisory program, including assessing risk areas and/or the financial condition of any assigned firms.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Support RBO CPCs and leadership in developing and executing effective and tailored supervision programs for evaluating market and liquidity risk consistent with Reserve Bank and System RBO standards and expectations.
  • Monitor issues, trends and developments at RBOs through the review of internal risk management reports, regulatory filings, regulatory surveillance reports, regulatory examination reports and work papers.
  • Document analysis of financial and/or business issues, highlighting emerging issues/trends that warrant further review, and prepare timely periodic reports/supervisory products for the CPCs, FRBSF management, and other constituents.
  • Assist in the development of supervisory documents, such as quarterly reports, MIS and metrics, and the risk assessment and supervisory plan. Maintain supervisory databases.
  • Work collaboratively across supervisory teams to improve the consistency of our approach, facilitate the sharing of best practices, develop peer perspective, and identify emerging issues for horizontal reviews.
  • Support the supervision and coordination of examination/inspection activities.
  • Act as Examiner-in-Charge of supervisory events and conduct horizontal reviews related to market and liquidity risk.
  • Coordinate on-site inspection and examination activities and assess findings, conclusions, and recommended ratings. Manage examiners throughout this process, review products, provide coaching, mentoring and performance feedback.
  • Ensure that examination/inspection activities are scheduled and appropriately staffed, objectives are clearly articulated, and products are analytically sound, well-supported, and consistent with Reserve Bank and RBO standards and expectations.
  • Maintain an open and honest dialogue with RBO management teams to support a risk-focused continuous supervision model that leverages communication and access to company management and internally generated risk reporting.
  • Develop sound working relationships with domestic (and foreign, if applicable) regulators by using communication, teamwork and influencing skills to ensure appropriate leverage of their work in support of the overall supervisory program.


  • An applicant for employment must be a U.S. Citizen, U.S. National, or hold a permanent resident/green card with intent to become a U.S. Citizen.
  • Bachelor’s degree in business, finance, accounting, or related field; or equivalent work experience; advanced degree or professional certifications in related fields are desirable.
  • Demonstrate a strong ability to influence effectively, resolve conflicts, and achieve collaborative outcomes to achieve supervisory goals, and build effective working partnerships. Ability to provide leadership in a collaborative decision-making process.
  • Capacity to identify and pursue multiple initiatives simultaneously, and deliver outstanding results with minimal or no supervision.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to effectively communicate complex/sensitive issues, analysis, and supervisory concerns. A strong commitment to keep Reserve Bank management and all appropriate supervisory stakeholders informed of the condition, changes in risk profile, and significant events regarding the institution’s risk profile.
  • At least 5 years of direct experience working with a regulatory agency, regulatory or risk management consulting in a banking environment, or as a bank internal auditor.
