Jun Kim, CFA, CA
Senior Analyst, Balance Sheet Design, Financial Markets
Reserve Bank of New Zealand
What are some of your career highlights so far?
• At RBNZ, working at the central bank during COVID-19 and watching how monetary policies are developed from a close-up.
• At EY, being a key audit staff for auditing an entire loans and advances book ($80bn+) of a commercial bank.
• At ANZ, working on a climate change project and presenting our findings to CRO.
What do you like most about your job
I really like the problem-solving and collaborative nature of my role. Everyone in the organisation shares the same vision and is passionate to achieve the mandates. It is surely one of the most interesting times to be in the central banking industry and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the team.
What are your interests outside work?
I am not an athlete but I like to stay reasonably active, playing occasional baseball and football when I get the chance during or after work. I am also trying for a half marathon later in the year, so wish me luck!
Make a prediction for 2026
Covid-19 is in the history books (fingers crossed), all borders are mostly reopened but require mandatory vaccine passports, 5G network has become the norm with 6G tech development well under progress, and lastly ESG policies are embedded in operations and cultures of businesses.
