Catalyzing Your Transformation, Thanks to Early Model Risk Governance

2:35 - 3:05 | Friday, May 24

Issuing an internal model risk governance is often not prioritized in the early stages of the transformation journey towards a model-driven company. Indeed, designing and validating such governances can be seen as a complex and heavy task, cannibalizing resources. In addition, some stakeholders of the transformation see governances as innovation killers. In this talk, Sebastien will explain all the benefits he experimented after releasing an internal analytics model risk governance at BNP Paribas Cardif, how it boosted the transformation pace, and why he thinks that is an important deliverable to be prioritized as soon as possible on the transformation path.
