Risk  Data Management and Reporting

June 4 – 5,  2018 – Toronto

Risk management is a key component of every financial institution’s governance framework. To identify, assess and manage risk effectively, risk-data must be collected, processed, aggregated and reported in a secure and well-controlled environment.  Additionally, compliance with regulations such as risk-based capital rules, specifically require challenging data quality and modeling standards to be met.

This seminar addresses best practices with respect to steps required to turn source data into reliable information that can be used to enhance risk management and decision-making processes at financial institutions, and to comply with federal regulations and international standards. During this session, we will review Risk Data Management along the spectrum of governance:  identification, collection, tracking, modelling, internal/external reporting and impacts on regulatory capital.
