Your career at Deutsche Börse Group

Eurex Clearing's Risk Management department is responsible for the strategic development of the risk management framework of the Central Counterparty (CCP). Default Management Section under Risk Management department is responsible for the Default Management Process (DMP) of the CCP. Goal of the DMP is to re-balance the CCP by establishing new transactions with its Clearing Members which replace those transactions that have been terminated with the defaulted Clearing Member. 


Your area of work

As an Intern (f/m/d) you will support the Default Management Section in the Risk Management department. The Default Management Section of Eurex Clearing is responsible for handling the default of one of our Clearing Members. During such an event, our traders will need to liquidate swiftly the portfolios of the defaulted bank. To achieve this goal, we need precise operational processes, as well as stable and efficient tools. As an Intern in the Default Management Section, you will participate in the enhancement and the creation of such tools and processes as part of long-term projects. Additionally, you will support our daily activities in evaluating our potential market and counterparty risk. By directly working within the Default Management Section, you will be at the heart of the CCP, and, therefore, gain a good insight in capital markets, from a trading and clearing point of view, but also knowledge about market regulations and risk measurement.


Your responsibilities:

  • You will help the trading desk during liquidation/simulation of liquidation process
  • You will support trading and risk management tools maintenance, enhancement and creation
  • You will participate in the Default Management process amendment / enhancement
  • You will make yourself and your teammates aware of relevant market news
  • You will assist in quantitative and qualitative risk assessment (e.g. market risk, counterparty risk, credit risk)

Your profile:

Your study focuses on the field of financial mathematics, economics, market finance or other comparable fields. Furthermore, we offer the possibility of an orientation internship, whereby you are currently in a gap-year after your bachelor's or master's degree in the above-mentioned fields of study - in this case, a certificate of enrolment is not required
  • You are familiar with financial derivatives, risk management and affinity to numbers and quantitative approaches
  • Your curiosity and proactivity push you to challenge the status-quo and identify overlooked problems that you can resolve with creative and analytical thinking
  • You have basic programming skills (SQL, Python/R, VBA), you master the MS Office suite and ideally have knowledge in Bloomberg / Reuters
  • You are fluent in written and spoken English
