Establishing and managing a mature model risk management program is critical for any organisation. A well-run program not only increases efficiency but also unlocks value by helping you to identify and manage model risks across the entire life cycle. Let’s learn more about a how you can unlock the value of your model risk management program.
Establishing Objectives and Scope
The first step in establishing a mature model risk management program is setting objectives and scope. This involves defining the roles, responsibilities, and expectations of the team involved in running the model risk management program. It should also include defining key stakeholders, determining available resources, and creating an appropriate timeline for implementation. The objectives should be tailored to fit your organisation’s specific needs and goals.
Identifying Proper Models
Once objectives have been established, it’s important to identify appropriate models that meet your organisation’s needs. This can be done through a combination of research, analysis, evaluation, validation, and quality assurance processes. It’s essential that all models are thoroughly tested prior to being implemented within your organisation’s systems – this ensures that they are accurate and reliable enough to provide the desired results without introducing any additional risk into your system or operations.
Managing Model Risk Through a Life Cycle Program
The next step is to develop a life cycle program for managing model risk across an entire system or operation. This includes developing standardised procedures for model development/implementation/updating/testing as well as monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) on an ongoing basis in order to ensure that all models remain effective over time. Additionally, regular review processes should be incorporated into the life cycle program in order to identify potential areas of improvement or areas where additional measures may be necessary in order to reduce potential risks.
Using Model Risk Management Software
Finally, organizations can benefit from using dedicated software solutions, such as Connected Risk’s Model Risk Management, in order to more effectively manage their mature model risk management programs.
