NATURE AND SCOPE :
The CCAR Team plays a critical role in conducting the bi-annual stress tests for M&T. The stress tests were developed by the Federal Reserve to assess the capital adequacy of financial institutions, under different economic stress scenarios. Loss estimates from credit, market, interest rate, operations, reputational and other identified risks are determined based on the Bank's existing portfolio and new originations over the forecast horizon, using a combination of quantitative models and expert judgment. The loss estimates are matched against capital sources and the required capital adequacy measures are evaluated for estimated losses under different economic scenarios.
The Associate CCAR Analyst works under the supervision of managers or senior analysts but exercises latitude over work assignments. This position has occasional contact with the internal departments within the Bank, including middle, senior and executive level management.
