Risk Americas 2018 Highlights

Insight from Chief Risk Officer of Genworth Financial

Insight from Chief risk Officer of Hyundai Capital America

“The topics covered at the Risk Americas conference are always insightful and informative and cover different streams of risk, including model risk.  Risk Americas is a great opportunity to meet with industry thought-leaders and practitioners to learn and share information about risk practices.  Attendees can expect great topics, great dialogue and networking with fellow risk professionals, and to return to their organizations equipped and ready to take their risk program to the next level.  The presentations are excellent and wide ranging in content.  I always benefit from the overviews of best practices and learning from some of the challenges that others have addressed. Risk Americas is a ‘must go’ conference for any Risk professional.”

VP, Model Risk Director, Arvest Bank

“The main benefit is to learn about leading industry practices, areas of focus and innovative risk management solutions for problems facing the financial services industry.”

– Executive Vice President, Chief Operational Risk Officer, BB&T  

“Attendees can benefit in many ways; learn from peers about current activities or concerns,
exchange ideas and develop connections as industry members.”

– VP, Model Risk Director,
Alliance Bernstein 

“Risk Americas is a great place to hear directly from industry leaders and get up to speed on current topics and challenges in the field.  Due to the high quality content, Risk Americas is a very well attended conference and among the best networking opportunities in the industry.”

– SVP, Head of Quantitative Risk Analytics, Regions 

“Attending conferences like Risk Americas 2019 enables sharing knowledge and expertise acquired through your experiences, and provides excellent opportunities to learn from the experiences of others.”

– Head of AML Risk Management, State Street Corporation 

“The benefit to attend conferences and conventions like Risk Americas in New York City is to hear other industry experts share their opinions on the current Risk, compliance, and financial innovation landscape, to see what other concepts, ideas, and products are being developed, and to meet fellow innovators and leaders of the industry.”

MAT is a new generation ALM tool that leans on state-of-the-art technologies with the goal of evolving the balance sheet management to a new paradigm. MAT is not just a calculation engine, it engloves the three components of a traditional architecture – Data loading, calculation engine and advanced reporting – allowing the user to devote more time in analyzing the data instead of its generation. MAT is not just a management tool, it has been developed in order to cover both the management and regulatory requirements for interest rate risk and liquidity risk.
Because of the technologies involved, MAT is able to load and compute the data at the contract level. It incorporates an advanced set of dynamic reports ready for use as Repricing Gap, Sensitivity Analysis for NII and MVE, Survival Horizon and Liquidity Gap, LCR, NSFR among others but also to create as many reports as the user wants
