Model Risk Governance is one of the most critical and evolving domains in the banking and FI space. A firm needs to establish adequate policies and procedures and ensure compliance, assign competent staff, oversee model development and implementation, evaluate model results, ensure effective challenge, review validation and internal audit findings, and take prompt remedial action when necessary. To discharge this obligation, firms must track not only the names of the models but also the other information such as versions, owners, purpose, development and validation history, dependencies, and other related information.
