You’ll be working as part of the global Political and Country Risk team in Zabierzów (Krakow Business Park). Our main focus is on the development of econometric models and scenario generators for stress testing. Our team is responsible for all aspects of country risk analysis.

The scenarios are developed using a suite of econometric models and involve input from senior management and other experts within UBS. Stress scenarios represent an area of continuous development, as they are increasingly adopted by banks to assess the impact of external shocks on their business and by regulators to assess the resilience of the financial sector and the economy to adverse events.
