Contineo FinCrime Validation

Regulatory scrutiny has heightened over recent years with Model Governance being placed into the spotlight, requiring organisations to take accountability for model accuracy and performance.

Organisations now face the challenge of how to implement effective governance frameworks and model risk management systems to deal with this increased regulatory pressure. They must ensure that they fully understand their models and are able to present sufficient documentation to demonstrate their model design, accuracy, intended use, applicability and administration of each model.

Model validation has become particularly relevant with the introduction of NY DFS 504 regulation and the ongoing discussion of the OCC Model Governance guidelines.
