Credit Risk Assessment, Modelling, and Management

key concepts and methodologies in understanding the drivers of credit risk, modelling measurement, and management


This Credit Risk Assessment course gives participants a comprehensive overview of the key concepts and methodologies in understanding the drivers of credit risk, modelling tools used for the measurement of credit risk, and current best practice in credit risk management techniques.

The course focuses on the actual practice of credit risk assessment within financial institutions as well as on the quantitative and methodological tools and procedures that are at the cutting edge of measuring, mitigating and managing credit risk.

The treatment of credit risk has shifted greatly since the global financial crisis of 2008. Prior to then, it was considered almost inconceivable that major investment banks and global insurers could default and create a systemic credit and liquidity crisis. Since the crisis there has been a universal re-thinking of most aspects of legacy risk management techniques. Financial regulators and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision have placed significant emphasis on the need for innovative and more robust methods of modelling financial stress and the kinds of credit market deterioration that was witnessed during the crisis
