Develop tool for senior management to manage level of compliance reviews of Share Loss claims in the HQ office by apply theories, concepts, and practices of statistics, data analysis, variance estimation, survey, sampling design, statistical computing, modeling and simulation develop a Regression Analysis Model to determine the appropriate level Charge-offs and determine number of reviews to be conducted in the HQ office. The study took the 2013 Shared Loss Payments of $2.96 billion and 2,450 certifications processed. RSAM needed to determine the appropriate asset level charge-offs and asset count to be reviewed in the HQ office. The results revealed by the use of regression analysis, set charge-off level at =>$2.5MM, 286 certification will be reviewed, or 79% of total payments. However, when asset level charge-off is set at =>$5MM, 137 will be reviewed or 61% or $1.8 billion of Shared Loss payments will be covered. Therefore, the study shows that at the $2.5MM and above, 108% more certifications will have to be reviewed, but only 18% more payments will be covered. Conclusion demonstrated that the maximum efficiency level will be at the $5MM and above level. The recommendation at the $5MM charge-off level was accepted by senior management.

Applied Lead Business Analyst skills and experience necessary to perform data profiling analysis on large sets of financial data to ascertain patterns that enhance decision making. Experience include the ability to identify, develop, implement and refine the results using data analysis tools and relational database management systems from major vendors primarily Oracle, Business Objects, Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), SAS Institute, RADR, Tableau, IBM Websphere Data Integration Suite, and MS SQL Server).

Build risk portfolio management models that measure (Tactical, Strategic, Operation, Market, & Credit risks), for Initial Contracts, Loan Modifications, Loss Share Certificates and Data Analysis. Determine solutions to minimize or eliminate risks by Use the Monte Carlo Simulation model to determine which Assuming Institutions have the largest and number of performing loans charge-offs in the Shared Loss Program that adversely affect the DIF. The model reveals at the right inflection point of the concave curve, the bulk of AI’s with performing loans charge-offs are nestled.

The Certificate Data Integrity Investigation Model (CDII) was developed out of the need to validate the accuracy of AI’s payment vouchers. The model evaluate Shared Loss data at the granular asset level in four criteria: (I) Accrued Interest Failure (no claims paid on non-accrued loans), (II) Performing Loans Charge-offs (no claims paid on loans less than 90 days past-due), (III) Duplicate Charge-offs (no claims pay more than once on one appraisal), and (IV) Loss Severity (no claims paid in excesses of 110% of loan). To-date the model has identified $53,129,784 in findings; the FDIC has already clawed back $31,109,649. Result to-date 59% return.

Provides supervisory oversight support to senior management, develop governance, internal controls, (COSO), give guidance, analyze complex and sensitive mission critical work, via developing new theories, criteria techniques encompassing the entire scope of the loss share program; serve as point-of-contact in launching reports, models, and analytics to resolve new challenges in the SLA program, by utilizing excel formulas, such as Concatenate, Pivot table, Max, Hlookup, Vlookup, extracting data from RTSP, ICE, Venue, SharePoint, SAP, Business Objects, RADR, SAS, CAMELS scores etc., to provide senior management with Management Reports, design Work-load Management Tools, Certificate Detail Aging Analysis and more. Plus, define application problems by conferring with clients, evaluation procedures and processes, develop business requirements, establish specifications, UAT testing, and write documentations.

Lead a team that devises effective and efficient ways to measure (quantify) market risk by (AI), Asset Portfolios Type, by Performing vs. Non-performing loans, and by Region in an attempted to determine risk exposure. Use Basel II & III recommendations on capital adequacy, market, credit, operational risks, as well as counterparty credit risk (CCR) to determine (AI) risk rating. With these weighs, applied risk-based approach to forecasting. Results have been encouraging; now supplement model, with stress testing techniques to determine both prepayment, and default risks and correlation on (AI) Loss Share portfolio assets. Senior management use analysis to make early termination decisions.

I was the Subject Matter Expert for the InTrader application. The InTrader application was the system of records for the banks fixed income investment security products, of which, 85% were in Mortgage Back Securities. I started to work with the InTrader application in 2003. Almost immediately, I recognized that the monthly output of the constant effective yield for the proper application of FASB 91 was incorrect. In fact, one of my main functions was to ensure the proper interpretation and application of the appropriate FASB(s) by product type. Subsequently, I conducted a quantitative analysis of both the fixed and variable MBS securities over a month, three month, six month, one year, and two year periods. This study resulted in the findings and solutions: - InTrader unable to properly calculate the effective yield on variable instruments. - Performed extensive 100% study of both fixed and variable instruments. - Conducted presentation that revealed huge cash-flow differences on variable securities calculated. - Developed solution: InTrader treated all interest rate re-set as "bullet" rate.
