Risk Management

As the world’s largest multilateral borrower and lender, risk is inherent in everything we do, and independent and effective risk management is therefore fundamental to our business

In Risk Management you will help us to accurately assess and price the risks of individual loans and investments, both at inception and during their lifetime. Alternatively, you can contribute to the evaluation and minimisation of the multitude of other risk factors we face across our international operations.

In all our specialisations across Risk Management, your contribution will ensure we manage our various risks and remain in a financial position that allows us to deliver our objective of positively impacting the future of Europe and its people.
