Model Risk Management for Insurance

Model Risk Management for Insurance

The practice of model risk management in insurance companies continues to evolve. Driven by regulatory changes and increased reliance on quantitative models, having a strong model risk management program is critical. By understanding and controlling model risk, insurance companies can reduce the potential for unforeseen losses across the organization. In this session, attendees will see how establishing strong model risk management, including robust effective challenge, resilient controls, and transparent assumptions and limitations, enables better decision-making across the organization. Attendees will also learn industry best practices around model validation and key concepts to improve their model risk program.

  • Recognize the benefits and motivations for implementing a robust model risk management framework
  • Evaluate the critical steps to setting up a model risk management program
