Incorporate Model Risk Management Into Day-to-Day Operations

Join Heads of Model Risk, Model Validation and Risk Management as They Address Specific Issues in Model Risk Management at a Practical Level at the GFMI 4th Edition Model Risk Conference

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2014) - GFMI, a marcus evans group, will host the 4th Edition Model Risk Conference, June 11-13, 2014 in NYC, NY. From the success of the west coast edition in San Francisco earlier this year, the meeting will help companies in the financial industry to better control model risk across an organization and set up a model risk governance system to maintain success over time.

Today model risk is more than ever at the top of companies' agendas due to the pressing demands from the regulators for transparency and clarity of models companies use. Moreover, internal pressures for avoiding losses due to model risk force companies to invest heavily in model risk infrastructure to avoid issues in the future.

The GFMI conference will facilitate the development of new model risk quantification and validation practices for the industry. Last but not least, it will strengthen the dialogue between the industry and the regulators when it comes to model risk issues.

Learn from Key Practical Case Studies:
- Federal Reserve Board evaluate the current regulatory landscape
- Bank of America show how to quantify model risk
- Barclaycard build models in line with the Basel III requirements
- BOK Financial control model risk in VaR models
- State Street Corporation develop a model risk rating system
- RBS Citizens Bank link model risk with business strategy

Attendees will interact with speakers and their peers in a classroom-style setting that fosters both audience interaction and engagement. Seating for this conference is limited to maintain an intimate educational environment that will cultivate the knowledge and experience of all participants.
