Why attend?

Today, risk management is at the core of banking. Credit, market, liquidity and operational risk management are required to run the bank and achieve regulatory compliance. Regulations like Dodd-Frank, FRTB, IFRS 9/CECL and stress testing (CCAR and DFAST) compel banks to have a complete, integrated view of enterprise risk management across all lines of business.

At the 2017 SAS Risk Executive Forum, you’ll learn about best practices from industry experts, including famed economist and commentator Ben Stein. Join your peers at this invitation-only forum to hear firsthand experiences with risk prediction, modeling and compliance.
