Job Description

At Wells Fargo, we want to satisfy our customers’ financial needs and help them succeed financially. We’re looking for talented people who will put our customers at the center of everything we do. Join our diverse and inclusive team where you’ll feel valued and inspired to contribute your unique skills and experience.

Help us build a better Wells Fargo. It all begins with outstanding talent. It all begins with you.

Corporate Risk helps all Wells Fargo businesses identify and manage risk. We focus on three key risk areas: credit risk, operational risk and market risk. We help our management and Board of Directors identify and monitor risks that may affect multiple lines of business, and take appropriate action when business activities exceed the risk tolerance of the company.

The Credit and PPNR Modeling (CAPM) Team (the “team”) is a unit within Corporate Credit and Market Risk and is responsible for model development and implementation of the following model types:

  1. Credit loss estimation models for the entire loan portfolio to support allowance for credit loss (including current expected credit loss preparation); estimation of risk weighted assets (RWA) in compliance with BASEL regulations; and, economically sensitive credit loss estimation in compliance with Dodd Frank and the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Reporting exercises (CCAR).
  2. Models to support Pre-Provision Net Revenue (PPNR) estimates including forecasting models to support Dodd Frank and the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Reporting exercises (CCAR).

Model implementation is an integral part of effective model risk management process. This position will focus on leading the implementation of credit models in support of the Corporate and Regulatory Stress Tests and Allowance for Credit Loss (ACL) / Business Loss Forecast (BLF) processes for the consumer unsecured credit portfolios, including Consumer Financial Services (credit cards), Retail Services (retail cards), and Personal Lending Group (student loans and personal loans and lines).
