Over time models have grown in variety, complexity, and use within financial services organizations. They have moved from tactical pieces of input to a strategic pillar that provides the infrastructure and backbone for strategy and decisions at all levels of the organization. Time and evolution of models left uncontrolled bring forth loss and potential disaster. Unfortunately, many organizations lack governance and architecture for model risk management. Financial services organizations need to provide a structured approach for model risk management that addresses model governance, lifecycle, and architecture to manage models and mitigate the risk they introduce while capitalizing on the significant value of models when properly used.
