In this research paper, David Eliezer, PhD, Vice President and Head of Model Validation at Numerix, explores the most common types and sources of model risk, and then outlines the best practices that practitioners can utilize in their model validation processes.

Highlights include:

  • Sources of Model Risk: Detection and Prevention
