(Senior) Risk Analyst (m/w/d)


You’ll work with our Risk practice in Frankfurt. This global practice supports clients in many different industries facing challenges of developing and implementing tailored concepts for risk recognition, measurement, and control.


You will develop analyses and conduct surveys for the banking and insurance sector as well as industrial companies in addition to handling research requests from consultant teams.

You will deal with a variety of risk management topics, including enterprise risk management, risk culture and organization, portfolio management, or strategic implications of regulatory frameworks such as Basel II/III or Solvency II. In internal projects, you will help obtain new insights and contribute your own ideas and experience.

Besides intensive on-the-job training and ongoing coaching, we will offer you the opportunity to attend internationally recognized training programs, such as the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program. Soon after beginning your career at McKinsey, you will determine your future development, e.g., you will become an expert in a particular industry, expand your knowledge in a specific area of risk management, or take on an expert role in client projects.
