Why should you attend?

Financial institutions rely on models and quantitative analysis to perform key activities such as risk management, investment selection, investment valuations, liquidity management, capital management and financial forecasting.
The sound management of the risks inherent in the use of mathematical models is imperative to reduce the risk of relying on flawed models or incorrect use of models.  SR Letter 11-7, was issued jointly by the Federal Reserve and OCC, provides comprehensive guidance for banks on effective model risk management.
This presentation will provide participants with an understanding of the background behind SR Letter 11-7 and all aspects of the guidance it provides. It will further provide a detailed review of the types of models and model usage, model development, model validation and model risk oversight.
