Kamakura to Host Risk Management Conference in Austria

NEW YORK, July 9, 2019: Kamakura will hold its EMEA conference September 10-12 in historic Rust, Austria. The conference will feature two important tracks: credit risk (including modeling, scoring, default probabilities, and best practices); and traditional risk measures, including regulatory compliance and emerging trends in regulation.

“Employing best practices for risk management is essential in the current regulatory environment, but banks can do much more than adhere to rules. By skillfully leveraging risk management tools, they can produce metrics that enable them to improve their financial performance, generating a significant return on their compliance investment,” said Jim Moloney, Kamakura’s Managing Director for EMEA. Attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas with leading practitioners from across the region and from Kamakura’s R&D leaders.
