SAS Risk Executive Forum 2017

~ September 12th ~ Customer Executive Center, SAS Spain, Madrid ~

Why attend

The CRO agenda is more crowded than ever. Financial institutions continue to feel pressure from regulators, auditors, boards and investors to manage risk more proactively and comprehensively. Model risk governance is becoming more and more critical. Modeling activities are subject to substantial extensions and changes; from new accounting rules to new regulations and business requirements which impact both staffing and systems. Adding onto that, financial institutions must operate their risk and finance functions in a more unified, cost-conscious and transparent manner that requires tighter organizational integration and more informed reporting.

At the 2017 SAS EMEA Risk Executive Forum, you’ll hear from industry experts about how these trends and changes will affect financial organizations, and from your peers about the lessons they have learned during the implementation of key risk initiatives.

Who should attend

CROs, Credit Risk Directors, Managers and Analysts, Lending Unit Managers, Commercial Unit Managers, Retail and Corporate Credit units, IFRS9 program directors, IT managers involved in credit risk activities.

Registration is free of charge.
