About the Role:

We are looking for a Risk Specialist or Bank Examiner to serve as a full-time member of a dedicated supervisory team (DST) responsible for the regulatory supervision of a large (over $100 billion in assets) Supervised Insurance Organization (SIO). As a DST member, you will be responsible for contributing to the development and execution of the Federal Reserve’s supervisory program for the assigned SIO. Your time will be spent with the DST conducting supervisory activities, including analyzing and assessing the capital management and risks and risk management practices associated with credit, liquidity, market, operational, legal/compliance, insurance, and overall governance framework of the SIO. Additional responsibilities will be tailored based on the candidate’s interests and risk profile of the SIO. The interdisciplinary coordination required of the team is substantial, requiring the ability, and providing the opportunity, to work collaboratively with other units within the Banking Supervision Department (Department), Board of Governors (Board Staff), and other regulatory agencies.

In this position, you will also have opportunities to contribute to Federal Reserve System (FRS), FRB Dallas, and Department initiatives by participating on committees and projects. Additionally, the FRS and FRB Dallas offer extensive opportunities for training.

This position will be managed out of the San Antonio branch office and report to the Director – Examination (DE)/ Central Point of Contact (CPC) of the SIO.

You Will:

  • Lead supervisory assessments of your assigned risk area in accordance with the FRS’ SIO Framework.
  • Conduct continuous risk-focused monitoring activities in your specialty area to observe risk trends, monitor for new issues, and assess remediation of any issues identified during a supervisor event.
  • Recommend well supported regulatory ratings/assessments for your specialty area to FRB Dallas management.
  • Lead meetings with SIO officials as well as FRB Dallas management to discuss issues and findings.
  • Lead or participate in other supervisory events and activities of the supervised institution.
  • Ensure work products are high quality and timely, include well supported conclusions that comply with System and District guidance, and accurately summarize and communicate findings.
  • Build and maintain effective working relationships with your team, other Reserve Bank colleagues, FRB Dallas management, Board staff, representatives from other regulatory agencies, and SIO management.
  • Share your views and be open to, and respectful of, others’ views and perspectives.
  • Be open to feedback and willing to coach and develop others.

You Have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in finance, accounting, or related field.
  • Examiner commission from a federal or state bank supervisory agency or minimum of five years’ experience assessing a risk area.
  • Equivalent education and/or experience for any of the above.
  • Regulatory experience of insurance companies desirable.
  • Strong communication (both written and verbal), interpersonal, and organizational skills.
  • Ability to work well in a team environment while providing strong leadership and managing multiple tasks.
