"It is an uncomfortable truth that today most financial firms cannot claim to have a complete and accurate inventory of all models used by the firm, even though this is a regulatory requirement under increasing scrutiny in bank exams."

Article by Jon Hill, Former MD, Global Head of Model Governance, Credit Suisse.

"The key is to agree that the current common approach is very expensive while simultaneously being only somewhat effective. The return on investment is very poor."

Insight from Alex Beigelman, former Head of Technology & Cyber Security Risk, JP Morgan.

"Change and varying interpretations of guidance is constant. To keep up and evolve, the obvious tools are to stay current with the publications and attend conferences.”

As CECL implementation deadlines draw closer, the industry is progressing towards analysis and review of potential impacts based on modeling decisions. In light of this, CeFPro are conducting an industry benchmarking survey. This survey will take no longer than 5 minutes of your time and please be assured that your name and company information will remain anonymous.

As a thank you for helping with the research, all survey participants will be provided with a complimentary copy of the full report.

As risks continue to expand and intensify, does your organization have the processes and technology in place to keep up? Relying on spreadsheets, email, and other disparate methods to manually manage risk just won’t cut it. Discover why financial institutions must embrace technology and evolve their approach to risk management—or face the increased exposure of catastrophic financial and reputational damage.

The Know Your Third Party (KY3P) consortium transforms the third party risk management process for financial institutions through industry collaboration and the standardization of a pre-contract due diligence, ongoing monitoring and incident management. The result is a win-win-win for financial institutions, third parties, and the industry.
