Creating Effective Risk Models Using Machine Intelligence
Ayasdi White Paper July 2015
￼Why Effective Risk Models are Critical
There is a growing need for financial institutions to have sound models in place that can accurately measure and control risk, proactively detect and prevent fraud, and effectively evaluate capital reserve adequacy. Model failure can be catastrophic to a firm’s financial condition.
The constraints imposed by annual regulatory reviews and huge financial losses as a result of decisions based off of inaccurate models are leading financial institutions to reassess how they develop, validate, and update the models they use to assess credit, market, and operational risk.
Accurately assessing a bank’s risk exposure requires a deep understanding of the complex and dynamic interplay of a large number of variables and the ability to continuously incorporate these findings into its models. Conventional analytics solutions are overwhelmed by data complexity, and have reached their practical limits. There is a need for a new approach.
Ayasdi’s machine intelligence software represents a revolutionary new way of rapidly analyzing highly complex data. It draws on the power of machine learning and topological data analysis (TDA) to speed the development of accurate and defensible models that encode business logic and that can be easily understood by the regulators.
