The Alicorn is historically referred to as the horn of a mythical creature, made from a substance believed to have healing properties and was associated with wealth and prosperity. In the west the Alicorn was found projecting from the forehead of a unicorn, but the myth and fantasy of such a creature transcends borders and regions: similar creatures feature in China (the Gilin), Japan, (the Kirin) and Vietnam (the Quẻ Ly) to name a few. The Alicorn is the emblem of a long sought after, truly mythical creature featuring in timeless legends worldwide

Risk and Analytics

Risk and Analytics

Alicorn Chase’s Risk and Analytics team services the dynamic and rapidly evolving banking markets of Regulation, Governance and Risk Management across Europe and Asia Pacific. Since 2009, the Risk and Analytics division have seen the traditional sectors of Market, Credit and Counterparty Risk Management diversify significantly across the whole banking market. Our reputation for quality of service and in-depth market knowledge has driven our build-out of niche sectors, including dedicated consultants for: Model Validation / Quantitative Risk, Stress Testing and Scenario Analysis, Liquidity & Capital Management, Regulatory Reform, Credit and Counterparty Risk as well as Operational Risk.
Specific successes in Europe include our specialist Risk Governance Consultancy team that have run several retained ‘top-down’ expansions for a range of clients, from Tier One Investment Banks, Private Banks, Vendors, Asset Managers, Service Providers, Technology Firms and Hedge Funds. One project in 2014 began with highly detailed and comprehensive up-front market mapping that translated into working with the Chief Risk Officer & Executive Committee on team design & headcount structuring, before moving forward in the full lifecycle of Talent Acquisition. Similarly, in APAC, our client demand has focused heavily on the Risk Mitigation and Stress / Scenario Testing space for both the international banks as well as the local regional institutions, including two full team build-outs. From our APAC regional headquarters in Singapore, our teams service the local FS market as well as the major hubs of: Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sydney and the briskly developing markets of SEA, North Asia, India, Central Asia and the Pacific Rim.
Our focus on Executive Search assignments in this broad but aggressively evolving space covers a range of seniority from entry-level MSc/PhD Quant Graduates for smaller boutique firms through to Executive Level covering research analytics managers, client and sales-oriented business mandates as well as senior Risk Committee Policy Managers. We ensure our Clients are only presented with individuals that we believe will meet and exceed their criteria, both in terms of background and experience, as well as in personality and culture. In this latter regard, we see a huge turnover when hiring across EurAsia given the significant diversity and rapidly evolving demands in the regional and international risk markets. Many candidates come to us via personal referral due to our professional service, and our offer of career advice and counselling, together with interview preparation and the provision of extensive information on prospective employers. Our long established and in depth client relationships enhance our ability to match candidate and client, and provide a smooth transition through the interview process.

Governance Risk & Compliance

Governance Risk & Compliance

The grouping of these three disciplines, across large and small organisations, is primarily done to reduce overlap and duplication in business management whilst aiding the production of metrics, information and guidance in the most cost efficient manner. To that end, GRC evolves due to a company’s risk appetite, internal policies and the external regulations and exists to ensure a company executes its leadership’s plan fairly, legally and with both investors and employees best interest in mind.

On the premise that GRC covers the control of an entity using the assessment and management of risk in order to attain corporate and legal requisite standards, Alicorn Chase operates across Financial, IT and Legal GRC and their respective core segments of operations, strategy, people, technology and processes:

· Audit
· AML
· KYC
· Data
· Compliance
· Legal
· Enterprise Risk
· Operational Risk & Control
