Junior Analyst

Analysis & Analytics Posted date 29 April 2021 KøbenhavnDanske Bank

Do you want to kick-start your career in a place that moves when the financial markets move? Do you love to code and analyse but want to be where things happen? Do you want to learn all about Bonds and Derivatives while keeping your coding skills in shape? Do you love to create automatic solutions and smart data analytics – based on your own business insights?
Then here is a great opportunity for you!

Collateral Intelligence
Counterparties within the financial markets are increasingly focussing on minimizing their credit risk, their capital burden and on reducing their liquidity consumption by optimising their collateral management. Therefore, the industry is moving towards increased automation and data based analytics in the area. This is your chance to get an exciting job with great opportunities for personal and professional growth working within a highly interesting and dynamic area in the financial markets. We are looking for a graduate who would like to develop him-/her-self as well as our business in a reputable global organization with high ambitions.

You will be part of a small and dynamic team creating and maintaining data solutions, reporting and business intelligence analytics for our Collateral Management department in the Large Corporates & Institutions unit. You will be working with 2 dedicated colleagues in the centre of Copenhagen. Our solutions are used for automation, reporting and to facilitate daily margin calculations on the majority of the bank’s derivatives, repo and securities lending business. We also support the Clearing and Third Party teams in Collateral Management and are continuously expanding our activities in these business areas.

Role and Responsibilities
As part of the Collateral Intelligence team your daily tasks will include

  • Ensuring that collateral data is ready and margin calls have been sent in the morning
  • Maintaining and supporting the existing data solutions for the Collateral Management department
  • Setting up new reports, checks and solutions to improve and expand the automation level in Collateral Management
  • Using your programming background and business insight to facilitate the dialogue between the IT department and Collateral Management
  • Cooperating with the Collateral and Third Party service teams in the department to effectively improve processes around data and reporting

You will ensure that Danske Bank’s counterparties and third party clients get a continuously improving service level by helping to optimise and continually develop our data and reporting setup and IT platform.

We deliver expertise through collaboration with focus and speed
We are in a world of continuous change and new challenges where agility and expertise are key words for us. Our objectives translate into high demands on both our service and the department’s professional level.

You will get an everyday changing environment, where we are working independently under the responsibility of an open and friendly manner supporting our foundation of great service, professional behaviour and feedback culture. You will also get many great colleagues who will help you grow from freshly graduated first year analyst into a full analyst role.

Your engagement plays a vital role
As a person; you are outgoing and able to take the dialogue with different stakeholders having different needs and mind-sets. Being a graduate, you might not have all the insights yet, but you are aspirational and curious, so you constantly learn and improve your financial and product understanding and coding skills – and you have a great sense of humour to take the top off a sometimes-hectic day.

Combining financial markets knowledge with coding skills
You have recently graduated with a degree in a field such as economics, finance or IT. You come with an analytical nature and some coding experience using SQL and at least one other programming language (preferably C#). Knowledge of financial markets products like bonds and derivatives is not required but would be an advantage. You have an innovative and outreaching attitude and you are a good communicator at all levels being fluent in both English and Danish.

It is very important that you are a strong and independent team player who sees the value in sparring and knowledge sharing while also acquiring knowledge on your own. You are not afraid to challenge the status quo, helping identify areas or processes that could be performed smarter, keeping focus on the details without losing sight of the whole value chain.
