Wealth Management Credit Risk?

Hi All,

I hope this is the right forum to post this in. I'm really quite interested in AM and am currently on a risk management graduate scheme whereby I have 3 rotations. First was pretty much a dud so I'm looking to my second now, and am looking to pick up skills that will aid me in getting into AM.

A role has been offered to the cohort in Wealth Management Credit Risk, but I'm unsure whether the skillset would translate over into AM.

It seems to largely be focused on concepts such as:

  • Impairments/capital calculations and forecasting
  • Customer portfolio stress testing
  • Reporting
  • Looking at portfolio trends (i.e. portfolio of customers, not assets, in SQL, SAS, etc.)
  • Controls around the wealth management business

Would be great to get your thoughts/input on this - thanks in advance!
