The Team

We are looking for a Financial Risk Specialist to join the Structured Debt & Equity (SDE) team within Transaction Approval & Advice (TA&A). The TA&A teams of ING Domestic Bank (55 FTE) are responsible for managing credit risks of customers within ING Netherlands and play a pivotal role in the lending process.


In specific, the SDE team is responsible for all new transactions and in life monitoring for acquisition and leveraged finance in the Dutch Mid Corporate market. In addition, the team covers sustainable project finance (e.g. solar and wind projects) and subordinated debt and equity investments made by ING.


Our team consists of 6 Financial Risk Specialist from different backgrounds. We work from our office in Amsterdam. Our team is transaction oriented, self-steering and flexible.


We contribute to the results of ING by safeguarding a balanced loan portfolio and assist in taking acceptable (credit) risks. We specially focus on advising and approving credit transactions for acquisition finance by Private Equity investors. Furthermore, we strive to monitor our portfolio and corresponding risk costs in a data driven manner.


Roles and responsibilities

SDE focusses on Mid Corporate business clients with a complex financing need. You will independently advise on credit applications in close cooperation with other ING departments. In doing this, you will have daily contact with the front office teams who are responsible for the origination of the transaction. In addition, you provide input on and challenge term sheets to maximize feasibility of the transactions and optimize the risk / reward balance. On occasion and when relevant from a credit risk perspective, you will visit business clients together with your front office colleagues. The experience you gain while assessing individual credit applications is valuable for other teams within ING as well as important input for data driven decision making.

In addition, you have an important role as a representative of credit risk management in projects related to the further development of data driven (automated) decision making and the optimization of portfolio management.
