The financial industry is reaching a pivotal stage since the last financial crisis where the relentless stream of post-crisis banking regulation is coming to a pause. But all is not done. Risk management operations and technology have come a long way, but firms are now hurting from the ramifications of industry reform and capital and compliance requirements now being phased in and implemented.
In the new world of costly, more intrusive and data-intensive regulatory regimes, the ability to achieve scale, reliability, and transparency (with the right operational economics) will be a winning factor for financial services business models. Conventional notions of addressing incremental change may not suffice any longer – more radical solutions need to be found. This will perhaps require CROs, CFOs, COOs and IT strategists to radically envision and rethink their regulatory and risk management operations and technology strategies.
On Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 featured panelists Cubillas Ding of Celent and Satyam Kancharla of Numerix discussed top trends and imperatives for risk management in 2015 and beyond, outlining strategic short and medium-term perspectives needed for firms to operate and thrive in the new world of risk management.

In the first part of the webinar, Cubillas Ding presented insights from recent research and covered:

  • The changing environment for risk management
  • Realities vs. imperatives
    • Stress Testing
    • Model Risk
    • Real-time as a paradigm
    • Sustaining operational underpinnings
  • Looking Forward

In part two of the webinar, the panelists engaged in a moderated discussion on the practical risk challenges they see firms facing, as well as some of the best practices practitioners can adopt to better manage risk.
