Global Advisory Solutions:
Accion’s Global Advisory Solutions team provides experienced operational and management support to help build sustainable and scalable companies focused on serving the financial needs of underserved individuals and small businesses. We strengthen our partners and maximize their impact by leveraging innovations in technology and financial services to lower costs and increase quality at scale.
We are a global team of advisors with hands on experience and deep technical and managerial expertise in building and supporting a range of financial service providers (FSPs). We work with organizations in emerging markets across Latin America, Africa and Asia to help them plan, implement, scale and enhance technologies and business models that can reduce bottlenecks to and catalyze the growth of financial services. In addition to our advisory work with FSPs, we contribute to industry development through case study work and research, knowledge sharing, as well as training and capacity building activities.
Global Advisory Solutions is looking for a Risk Manager to provide technical expertise and methodologies definition to ensure that FSPs are effectively managing risk at their institutions. As an advisor focused on the team’s risk and credit analytics work, the Risk Manager will support three core areas to help drive sustainable growth for our clients: risk analysis (stability), credit analytics (insight), and growth strategies (quality). Through risk analysis we help our partners critically evaluate the risks facing an organization – both internally and externally – with an integrated risk management approach. With credit analytics, we use deep data statistical techniques to ascertain the effectiveness of product design, customer identification, underwriting, renewal, and collection policies both through traditional and digital channels. By focusing on understanding the environment and data better, we identify process improvement and product recommendations to help FSPs develop strategies to increase their efficiency, profitability and customer base.
Working as part of a global, cross-functional team, the Risk Manager will represent Accion as an advisor to our clients, build client relationships and support a variety of risk and credit analytics activities and strategies for our clients. The Risk Manager will need to have excellent people, project management, and capacity building skills, and a deep understanding of data analytics, risk modeling, and credit underwriting, collections and renewals for FSPs in emerging markets.
In this position you will be a key member of our Global Advisory Solutions team, collaborating closely with project team members to understand the needs of FSPs, and to advise them on risk analysis, credit analytics, and growth strategies that will ultimately drive scale, customer engagement, and growth with quality. Key responsibilities include:
