In matters of credit risk, for most regulators, lenders or investors, use a body of crisis-fighting knowledge that is all too often picked up essentially from the past 10 years. Reactions to the 2007 crisis have amply shown that not enough people referred to the main precedent, the 1929 crisis, to pick up wisdom: the old but fundamental precedents were wrongly deemed too old to be relevant. Regulators’ reactions indicated that more was done to patch the system than to envision a long-term way out of credit crises. Whilst the bulk of the effort was spent on firefighting to save the financial system from collapse and to protect regulators from various accusations.

Join this session by expert speaker Fred Vacelet, where he will discuss that how we see this new paradigm, and invite participants, on that basis, to build up their own ideas about what is now obsolete, what is now coming up, and what could come up next.

Session Highlights:

  • Review of the current outlook on credit risk

  • Tour of the markets for credit risk

  • Capital-based regulation and other old traditions

  • Review of the methodologies

  • A view at concentration risk

  • Dealing with fragmented credit markets: the power and limit of proxies

  • Calibrating credit risk models

  • Old and new credit risk stress-test scenarios 

Why You Should Attend:

History of ideas, in economics, has shownthat old paradigms, as good as they may have been in their time, can survive inan obsolete form for long, and bring about wrong strategies, wrong investments,to considerable costs to individuals and institutions. We show an antidoteagainst the dust of old risk management thinking, and submit our views on whatthe post-crisis risk management ideas may emerge as.

We may not have the solution to thechallenges of the 2020’s, but one thing is even more sure: the traditionalmethodologies, as good as they may have been in their time, and especially asstretched as they have become, are even less apt to address future challengesin credit risk management.
