This training program will detail why SR Letter 11-7 has become the gold standard for model risk management, with its principle being adopted not only by banks but also virtually all U.S. financial institutions.
Financial institutions rely on models and quantitative analysis to perform key activities such as investment valuations, risk management and liquidity and capital management. A sound management of the risks inherent in the use of mathematical models is imperative to reduce the risk of reliance on flawed or misapplied models. SR Letter 11-7, issued jointly by the Federal Reserve and OCC, provides comprehensive guidance for banks on effective model risk management.
This webinar will offer attendees an understanding of the background behind SR Letter 11-7. It will further discuss the purpose and scope behind the supervisory guidance on model risk management.
