Federal Reserve Bank San Francisco, CA
  • Posted: August 23, 2019
  • Full-Time

The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (FRBSF) believes in the diversity of our people, ideas, and experiences and is committed to building an inclusive culture that is representative of the communities we serve.

The FRBSF's Financial Institution Supervision and Credit (FISC) Division supervises financial institutions and service providers to financial institutions in the western United States. Our mission is to ensure a safe, sound, and accessible financial system. Under delegated authority from the Board of Governors, the FRBSF provides regulatory oversight of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group's (MUFG) U.S. operations as part of the Large Foreign Banking Organization Program. MUFG is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and is one of the largest banking organizations in the world. Its U.S. operations include significant commercial banking, investment banking, brokerage, and asset management activities.
Job Summary
This role will provide a qualified individual with an exciting opportunity to serve on the FRBSF's dedicated supervisory team at MUFG. As the Financial Resiliency Manager, you will play a key role in the execution of a strong supervisory program at MUFG.
As part of the Large Foreign Banking Organizations (LFBOs) program, you will report directly to the MUFG Central Point of Contact. In this role, you will manage a team of risk specialists and commissioned examiners responsible for assessing MUFG's capital positions and planning and liquidity positions and planning. As well, the Financial Resiliency team will contribute to the assessment of governance and controls under the Federal Reserve's Large Financial Institutions Ratings Framework.
In addition to managing this team, the role also requires direct individual contributions. Specifically, the Financial Resiliency manager will lead critical team processes, such as annual supervisory assessments and supervisory planning, lead supervisory reviews (e.g. target examinations and participations), and participate in supervisory activities conducted by other dedicated team members. The manager will need to make informed judgments about the firm's safety and soundness, resiliency, resolvability, and compliance with laws and regulations. As such, a deep understanding of the Consolidated Supervision Framework for Large Financial Institutions outlined in SR Letter 12-17 is required. The Financial Resiliency Manager should also be familiar with the new Large Financial Institutions (LFI) Ratings Framework outlined in SR Letter 19-3, as well as applicable proposed guidance, since these are key responsibilities of the manager on the dedicated supervisory team. This position provides a forward-thinking individual an opportunity to help build, direct, and lead a team of three to four direct reports in a fast-paced environment, where the FR's LFI rating system and supervisory approaches are evolving in alignment with SR Letter 12-17.
