A taste for risk

FNB’s Dr Mark Nasila talks AI, analytics and risk.

20 September 2021

Ever wondered what it’s like to spend all day worrying about risk? If you’re someone with a passion for data, analytics, AI, and insights, like Dr Mark Nasila, chief data analytics officer in the FNB Chief Risk Office, then the answer is yes. For most other people, it’s probably, ‘Pass the paracetamol’. After all, what could possibly be the cause of a bigger headache in the modern world than thinking about every vulnerability and risk, especially at a large financial institution?

For Nasila, however, it’s exciting, interesting and challenging. It’s a role that puts him at the head of the analytics operations within FNB and helps the organisation to find ways of transforming its data into business value in relation to risk.
