FI-FM Risk is responsible for market risk, product control and counterparty credit risk management of ING's trading and collateral portfolio.

FI-FM Centralization, Valuation & Product Control is a new squad starting in December 2020 and will play a key role in the MT objective to embed more centralization and efficiency into the tribe FI-FM Risk. The new team is created by consolidating the Global Operational Control (GOC) and Global Product Control (GPC) squads and its focus areas will be valuation, price testing, product control and operational control.

Global Operational Control (GOC) combines risk expertise with operational excellence to support global FI-FM Risk squad operations with the intent to identify best practices and to implement improved governance and efficiency gains by means of global alignment, centralization, automation or outsourcing.
