Risk Evaluation with Data Analytics

Who Should Attend?


Duration: 4 Days

With the rise of computing power and new analytical techniques, banks can now extract deeper and more valuable insights from their ever-growing mountains of data. Risk departments, which have been using data analytics for decades, participates heavily in these trends present unique opportunities to better identify, measure, and mitigate risk. Critically, they can leverage their vast expertise in data and analytics to help leaders shape the strategic agenda of the bank.

Today, risk analytics techniques make it possible to measure, quantify, and even predict risk with more certainty than ever before. That’s a big deal for organizations that have relied heavily on the opinions of leaders at the business unit level to monitor, assess, and report risk. Even for executives with sound intuition, it was virtually impossible to construct an enterprise level view of risk spanning many different parts of the business. Hence, let’s proceed to becoming risk intelligent by joining this course.
