The Model Risk Manager position covers the team members who start acting as model validation manager. To be able to cover a wider range of models and projects, they need to delegate part of their review work to entry-level analyst and analyst team members by defining the analyses to be performed, supervising and structuring their work during the review, and presenting the final deliverables articulating the executive summary of the review. Furthermore, the Model Risk Manager coordinates the contribution of the team to various Group level projects and represent the team within those projects.

Sound model risk management practices require that these market risk, counterparty risk and valuation risk metrics, and any new developments, are subject to various types and levels of independent reviews, assessing the conceptual soundness, the proper application and the limitations of these methodologies. We have built a franchise of model risk management services advising senior management, supervisory authorities, as well as serving internal clients requiring model risk assessments for existing or new models.
