Risk Model Validation, London

30 November - 1 December 2017

Over the last few decades we have seen the use of quantitative risk models become a cornerstone of financial regulation. Financial institutions now have to determine capital buffers based on increasingly complex modelling techniques. In addition, the crisis has highlighted the need for rigorous and critical analysis of the application of such models and has displayed the need to assess the detrimental effects that the misuse of risk models can produce.

With these challenges in mind, Risk is delighted to offer this specialist training course which has been designed to focus on the assessment of risk models in the context of concrete risk model implementation. There are numerous validation tools available, and the course will individually describe these tools and their application in practice.
