Digital Transformation of Model Management
To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set up for the delivery of our courses. Please note we therefore have a limited number of spaces available and these will be assigned on a first come, first accepted basis. We recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.
Note: This course is also offered through a live webcast if you are unable to travel to the event in person.
Regulated financial institutions (FI) that extensively use models are facing challenges in growing model risk management activities and regulatory scrutiny and in the meantime under the pressure to reduce the cost of model risk management. FIs have to centralize model development and validation activities across the enterprise to address this challenge, increase efficiency of model management activities, and comply with strict regulatory requirements.
The centralization of certain model life-cycle functions may produce limited impact on the overall efficiency of the enterprise model management because models are used in a decentralized environment across multiple business units and operated on fragmented infrastructure and siloed data. The fragmented infrastructure and data architecture are also the major impediments for quantification of the enterprise-wide model risk with the use of AI and ML techniques.
Non-regulated or smaller FIs that want to use models in their business and risk management processes are facing a dilemma whether to adopt a conventional or distributed model management framework. To make that determination, they consider the implementation cost, expected efficiency of the processes and the efforts required to comply with relevant regulatory requirements.
This course covers current issues and offers practical solutions. It encompasses a transformation of the existing framework or development from scratch of an infrastructure that integrates models and data used across corporate functions and business units. Suggested solutions are enabled by a technology that supports distributed decision making and digital rights management. These are critical for building agile model management functions and quantifying model risks without incurring excessive costs.
How will you benefit?
· Learn how to approach digital transformation of model management to increase efficiency and decrease cost of model usage, regulatory compliance and risk management
· Gain familiarity with a practical framework of digital transformation impacting the model lifecycle, business processes, people, control and assurance functions
· Understand how to normalize data sources and models to create an enterprise-wide fabric of modelling ecosystem
· Learn about the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT or Blockchain) and its application for the Enterprise Distributed Model Management (DMM) and Digital Rights Management (DRM) on the cloud
· Utilize AI and ML techniques for quantification of a portfolio and enterprise model risk

A detailed questionnaire will be sent to all course participants to establish exactly where the group training needs lie. The completed forms will be analysed by the course leader/trainer and followed by telephone if further clarification is required. As a result we can guarantee that the course is pitched at exactly the right level and that the issues that you regard as relevant are addressed. The course material will reflect these issues and will enable you to digest the subject matter after the event in your own time.
Who should attend?
Industry regulators, CROs, CIOs, CDOs, Heads of Model Risk, Governance, and Validation, model developers, first, second, and third lines of model risk defence, project managers, internal control and audit, and data analysts.
