Working at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York positions you at the center of the financial world with a unique perspective on national and international markets and economies. You will work in an environment with a diverse group of experienced professionals to foster and support the safety, soundness, and vitality of our economic and financial systems.

Employees can expect to be in the office a couple of days per week as needed for meetings and team collaboration and should live within a commutable distance.


What we do: 

The Supervision Group of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) supervises banks in the Second District. The objectives of supervision are to:

  • Evaluate and promote the overall safety and soundness of supervised institutions
  • Ensure supervised institutions’ compliance with relevant laws and regulations
  • Facilitate the stability of the financial system of the United States

Supervision is carried out through a combination of methods, including on-site and off-site examinations involving staff dedicated to the supervision of an individual firm and other professionals focused on analytical, policy and risk matters. Supervision is coordinated with other US agencies.

The Large Institution Supervisory Coordinating Committee (LISCC) Supervision Program is the Federal Reserve’s national supervisory program for the largest and most systemically important financial institutions. The LISCC Dedicated Supervisory Team (DST) executes firm-specific examinations and monitoring in coordination with the national programs, maintains a broad-based understanding of the safety and soundness of their assigned firm, and recommends supervisory plans and ratings. Each DST partners with national programs (Capital, Governance and Controls, Liquidity, Resolution and Recovery Planning) to plan and execute on monitoring and assessments of their supervised firm.


Your role as Institutional Supervision Supervising Examiner:

  • Lead or participate in firm-specific reviews and baseline monitoring meetings in accordance with LISCC program requirements
  • Collaborate with other DST and Horizontal Examiner Teams to identify and develop supervisory responses to inherent and emerging risks
  • Develop and maintain productive relationships with key contacts at the firm to discuss, investigate, and understand various topics relevant to the LISCC Program
  • Contribute to the assessment of the firm’s annual assessment and ratings by:
    • Identifying the main ratings drivers of risk and performance, and the firm’s resilience to risk taking activities
    • Leveraging information gathered over the supervisory cycle from firm-specific examinations and/or horizontal reviews, and other monitoring activities
    • Drafting rating assessment language for the annual assessment letter based on the totality of related supervisory work conducted throughout the year
  • Collaborate with LISCC program pillars, including the Capital Program, the Monitoring and Analysis Program (“MAP”) and the Governance and Controls, by conducting monitoring across a range of performance and areas at the firm
    • Help implement a forward-looking risk identification framework that addresses emerging risks for the financial system and financial stability
    • Provide input to the governance and controls rating based on the financial risk management and control assessments conducted under the Capital Program


What we are looking for:

  • Ability to take on a leading role on examinations at large complex financial institutions and/or an ability and willingness to learn about complex regulations, including supervisory expectations and findings.
  • Supervisory or industry experience in investment banking and/or global markets trading businesses including experience of financial and non-financial risk management involving institutional clients.
  • Supervisory or industry experience with financial and non-financial risks, such as operational risk, model risk, compliance risk, internal audit, IT/Cyber.
  • Working knowledge relevant supervisory standards pertaining to financial risks and non-financial risk management practices at large financial institutions
  • Excellent project management, communication, interpersonal, and collaboration skills
