About This Series: 
Financial institutions have been relying on models to support their decision making already for decades, therefore managing the life cycle of models and the model risk management are not new topics.  In recent times, however the discipline of model risk management has become more formalized and rigorous, partly as response to the increasing recent regulatory scrutiny being applied to their models, with US and European banking regulators leading the charge. This requires banks to put an extra compliance effort into management of their models and of the model risk embedded there. In parallel, on the other front, trends such as Big Data, Internet of Things but also new regulations such as IFRS 9, FRTB are even pushing banks to develop additional models which will have to be properly managed as well.
In order to address the above,  financial institutions around the world are increasingly looking for skilled Model Risk Management professionals which they need to tackle these challenges. Number of leading firms have already established dedicated Model Risk Management units with a clear task to get the Model Risk under control. Managing model risk requires a broader perspective and should not rely solely on Model Validation activities, which is the more traditional approach, but involve tools such as Model Governance, Model Risk Profile & Appetite, analysis of Model Risk Concentrations & Exposure etc.
