Model Risk Management Solutions and Services

Boards and management rely significantly on models and model output to make strategic and operational decisions. Therefore, it is extremely important to have the right model risk management framework in place to ensure the accuracy, robustness, and reliability of models and model outputs.

Developing a robust Model Risk Management (MRM) program will enable and empower your institution to manage model risk across the lifecycle while also facilitating the “effective challenge” oversight function prescribed by the regulators.
