From the monitoring specifically, what I appreciate is being able to propose solutions that contribute to strengthening the models in collaboration with a broad range of stakeholders, being the data, the business or even the regulatory side. All of this in a truly multicultural, diverse, and passionate team.”

Jeroen, Advanced Analytics Young Professional: "For me CSMU has been a great starting point in getting to know the bank. In CSMU we work together with many other teams and face a wide variety of challenges. And because we focus on three aspects of credit models (strategy, methodology & backtesting) there is always plenty to learn!"
