About this paper
During the turmoil of the global financial crisis, several risk management system weaknesses that had developed in relatively benign market environments became apparent, particularly in the area of credit risk management. Going forward, a successful risk management system will allow for interdependencies among credit risk, liquidity risk and market risk, and will contrast various quantitative analyses with qualitative considerations. Only an integrated approach has any chance of giving a reliable picture of the upside and downside of a bank's overall portfolio. With this perspective in mind, this paper will focus on the credit risk management portion of an integrated enterprise risk management system.
