Ally and Your Career

Ally Financial only succeeds when its people do - and that’s more than some cliché people put on job postings. We live this stuff! We see our people as, well, people - with interests, families, friends, dreams, and causes that are all important to them. Our focus is on the health and safety of our teammates as well as work-life balance and diversity and inclusion. From generous benefits to a variety of employee resource groups, we strive to build paths that encourage employees to stretch themselves professionally. We want to help you grow, develop, and learn new things. You’re constantly evolving, so shouldn’t your opportunities be, too?

The Opportunity

The Ally Bank Capital Markets Director role is responsible for assisting in the day-to-day management of High-Quality Liquid Asset (HQLA) Portfolio as well as assisting in the management of the Interest Rate Risk position for Ally Financial.  Specifically, the Director will lead in assessing and analyzing highly liquid US government guaranteed securities such as, Agency Mortgage-Backed Securities, as well as United States Treasury (UST) markets and implement overall strategic decisions surrounding positioning of the portfolio.  Additionally, the Director will assist in managing the Interest Rate Risk position by developing strategic plans and executing derivative positions.  The Director is expected to be able to develop, recommend and put into action various strategies across several products to drive results for Ally.  As part of the role, the Capital Markets Director may have additional support analysts reporting directly to them.

The Ally Bank Capital Markets Director role is also responsible for working with the Liquidity Risk team to ensure that all Liquidity Risk metrics and regulatory guidelines are in good standing and the Liquidity Portfolio is properly aligned with those goals.  Additionally, the Director will work closely with Corporate FP&A ensuring that the HQLA portfolio is within the Corporate Strategic Plan forecasts.

This is a fast paced and highly visible role where priorities often evolve and shift in accordance with market developments, regulatory developments, and internal prioritization. We are always maintaining a delicate balance of essentialism, efficiency, value add, complexity, time to delivery, maintainability, and tactical vs strategic prioritization without compromise in accuracy or alignment with Ally policy, culture, risk appetite, and line of business objectives.
