Shell: Senior Market Risk Analyst LNG

Shell is seeking a senior market risk analyst LNG to be based in Singapore.

What is the role?

The individual is responsible for reviewing and providing assurance on the reasonableness of the overall book representation of the Shell LNG business, ensuring that the price risk management activities of the desk are captured timely within the trading systems and that the resultant pricing exposures carry the relevant fair values consistent with internal mark to market standards. 

The individual is charged with understanding how the Shell LNG businesses generate returns, what resources are consumed in the process, what price risks are taken and associated trading strategies.  The individual will need to be able to distill the key drivers of value generation and explain pricing exposures and P&L generated by the desks.  This requires close engagement with Commercial stakeholders as they start up in new markets and develop their business strategies.

The individual will also need to coach and guide junior team members (some of whom will not be in the same office location).  Strong interpersonal skills will be important to provide effective coaching towards the overall risk team objectives in support of business outcomes.
