The newly introduced Numerix Perspectives Series features expert panels of industry practitioners, analysts and Numerix specialists in guided, in-depth discussions—weighing in on key industry challenges and timely topics for derivatives and insurance practitioners.
The first panel discussion in this video series addresses the model risk challenges firms are facing today, in addition to best practices that can be adopted to better manage model risk—including the most effective ways to quantify model risk and analysis surrounding the introduction of model-based limits.
Moreover, while recent Greenwich Associates research found that both sell side and buy side firms have improved their model risk management practices in the past few years, those process still remain largely manual, very time consuming, and prone to disputes between different departments with differing objectives and incentives.
So, what can be done to ease this burden of market participants, and in doing so reduce the risk that a model failure could threaten the world’s financial system? Where is the prioritization of model risk management today and how is it shifting? What are the best ways to quantify model risk and address the introduction of model-based limits?
Join featured panelists Kevin McPartland of Greenwich Associates, along with Dr. David Eliezer and Satyam Kancharla of Numerix as they address all of these questions in the inaugural panel discussion of the Numerix Perspectives Series, “Challenges & Opportunities in Dealing with Model Risk: A Panel Discussion with Greenwich Associates & Numerix.” In this discussion, our panelists also examine important recent research findings from Greenwich Associates and discuss specifically how firms can overcome many of today’s existing model risk management challenges.
