Credit Risk Management & Advisory, Analyst - New York


The Risk division is responsible for credit, market and operational risk, model risk, independent liquidity risk, and insurance throughout the firm.


The Credit Risk Management & Advisory (CRMA) Department interacts with every division of Goldman Sachs. Leveraging its extensive expertise in financial, credit and risk analysis, CRMA provides astute and objective judgment to the firm and its clients. Goldman Sachs is one of the few Wall Street firms to house both the risk management function for sales and trading, as well as the credit rating advisory function for Investment Banking clients, under one department. Since CRMA has been structured to work closely with almost every part of the firm, its professionals gain diverse financial experience and a broad perspective on how the entire firm functions. The interaction with numerous departments and the range of projects that ensue allow for a challenging, varied and multi-dimensional work environment.
