    • Business Outline

      The Risk Management Department of Nomura Group is analyzing a vast quantity of market information and complicated terms and conditions of financial agreements to estimate the impact of changes in the market environment on the earnings of the entire Group, including overseas operations. In order to estimate the profitability of the huge portfolio under envisaged market environments in the future, it is essential to have mathematical models that are designed in conformity with various mathematical and financial engineering theories. However, these models are not necessarily sufficient for the analysis of all economic activities and financial products: these models may have overlooked risks that could cause huge losses. People who are aware of such limitations of the models. People who are highly sensitive for detection of changes in the financial market. People who are ready for “surprises” by imagining the impacts that such risks may cause on the financial products or counterparties. People who can further enhance the risk management operations this way. We at the Risk Management Department are looking for such people.
