Why You Should Attend


Our Digital Week Format

We recognize that in today’s worlds our clients need information delivered in a different way; one that recognizes that fluid working hours and flexible working environments are the “new normal”. Our DIGITAL WEEK FORMAT is designed to compliment this new way of working by delivering two hours of highly focused, practitioner-driven content per day, spread across your working week through our innovative Live+ platform online streaming platform.

Event Focus

Our expert panel will showcase best practices for Model Risk Management (MRM) within the specific context of the current market conditions. Join us for insights into the current regulatory environment and the implications of COVID-19 across all 3lines of defense within MRM. Strategize on the lessons learnt from COVID-19 stress testing models and the best approaches to managing these models in the future; acknowledging the downfalls of these models during a stressed scenario. Hear directly from your fellow colleagues as they benchmark the utility of Machine Learning (ML) models and how downfalls within these models can be overcome to increase the ROI.

marcus evans Live+

Our Live+ content platform will of course give you access to all the presentations as they happen and beyond, but we have to do much better than that!

That is why our Live + platform is loaded with features to ensure you are able to fully participate.
