The Role Responsibilities
Treasury works closely with senior management, the businesses, Country CEOs / CFOs, and Finance to manage and promote the bank's liquidity, capital and balance sheet position. Within Treasury, the Treasury Liquidity function is responsible to driving the strategic liquidity agenda, including Funds Transfer Pricing ('FTP') and Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Booking ('IRRBB'). Within this context, the FTP & IRRBB team works with key stakeholders at the country level to ensure policy application, and with a broader universe of stakeholders to ensure the application of policy is appropriate to drive the strategic outcomes for the balance sheet.
The foundation for this is the identification, risk capture and measurement of interest rate characteristics of client facing exposures. A key function of the FTP approach is to neutralise, to the extent feasible, the interest rate risk in the business, primarily by transferring this risk to Treasury. This is done by using an internal price between the Treasury and the business that matches the underlying interest rate used between the business and their clients for the given asset, liability, or portfolio.
This role will be focused on working directly with the Head of FTP and FTP & IRRBB team members to partner with the business to identify interest rate risk features and characteristics of business activity. This includes building an understanding of how movement in rates affects client pricing across the product suite.
  • Engage with the Businesses and Treasury to review and, where appropriate, revise our interest rate risk transference within the FTP approach for the client balance sheet.
  • Particular focus will be applied to behaviouralized products, with the intent to drive strategic commercial and risk management outcomes.
  • Work with the Businesses, IRRBB, and Regional Treasury teams to understand the interest rate risk of client transactions, products and portfolios, including considerations such as market standards, pricing conventions, client behaviour, and to ensure that these features are captured and measured for the purpose of calculating the Group's interest rate risk exposure.
  • Work with Treasury Markets to appreciate the ability to effectively hedge or otherwise neutralize the resulting exposure.
  • Work with the regional Treasury teams and Global Businesses to ensure appropriateness, equity, and comprehension of our interest rate risk identification, measurement, and transference approach, and identify and mitigate any related risks.
  • Contribute to the interest rate risk framework and related processes, including transference through FTP
Risk Management
  • Support senior team members in creating the appropriate risk management framework to govern the identification, measurement and transference of interest rate risk.
  • Support senior team members in ensuring policy compliance regarding interest rate risk identification, measurement, and transference
  • Review product programme governance for interest rate risk identification, measurement, and transference approaches; liaising with business stakeholders and other members of the FTP & IRRBB team.
Regulatory & Business Conduct
  • Display exemplary conduct and live by the Group's Values and Code of Conduct.
  • Take personal responsibility for embedding the highest standards of ethics, including regulatory and business conduct, across Standard Chartered Bank. This includes understanding and ensuring compliance with, in letter and spirit, all applicable laws, regulations, guidelines and the Group Code of Conduct.
