Model Risk Management; Risk and Pricing Models - 2 day Course

This course is designed to address Model Risk Management and break it down into a form that is easy to understand for participants, giving them a comprehensive knowledge. This will enable them to build the perfect model and understand how it works - without which would make it worthless. 

A growing number of banks and financial institutions have great reliance on models and quantitative analysis during their decision making process. This is driven by regulation, but also by technological capability and enhanced data. Due to this, the Federal Reserve guidance has placed increased importance on model risk management in the US, and have also increased expected standard in validation and mitigation. Increased risk of managed risk has been caused by growth in quantitative models. Regulatory direction is also expected to grow in the UK and Europe due to the advanced use of models and statistical algorithms to measure financial activity.
