The Corporate Solutions Global Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) team supports managing and steering the financial performance of the business unit Corporate Solutions and its regional management teams. This position will complete the new dedicated Economic Valuation Management (EVM) Production Team embedded in FP&A, to ensure accurate and timely delivery of the quarterly EVM financial statements. EVM is Swiss Re's integrated economic accounting and steering framework based on market consistent valuations, which measures value creation for all business activities at Swiss Re, also taking into consideration the time value of money. It allows us to see the connection between risk-taking and value creation and provides a consistent framework to evaluate the outcome of controlled risk-taking and capital allocation decisions throughout a performance cycle.

As a member of the team, we are looking for a highly motivated individual who will manage the EVM production process. The team is mainly responsible for the quarterly production and validation of the EVM results.

The candidate should ideally have an understanding of economic valuation principles/Swiss Re's EVM concept, as well as traditional re(insurance) and derivative business.

Key responsibilities include:
• Lead the EVM Production Team in managing and executing the production, review and submission of EVM financial statements and sensitivities, including cash flow and capital reconciliations
• Develop an advanced understanding of economic value measurement for underwriting and investment activities and understand the differences compared to traditional valuation approaches
• Ensure appropriate audit documentation and adequate internal controls are performed around EVM production and validation processes
• Support and collaborate with the EVM C&R team in all processes and deliverables related to the quarterly EVM close
• Support change analysis and functional specification implications from changes in the EVM methodology and subsequently implementing into the CorFACTS landscape
• Evolve in a multi-disciplinary environment and work closely with finance and risk management experts to produce EVM financial results
• Facilitate, plan, maintain and enhance EVM processes
• Own the way you work and have the possibility to make a difference
• The ability to perform the above tasks with a high degree of autonomy, while leveraging on and working closely with all relevant stakeholders.
