Latin American Model Development, Validation, and Risk Management Conference Comes to Chile on November 20-22
From November 20-22, the 2nd Annual Model Development, Validation and Risk Management in LatAm conference will be hosted in the Chilean capital Santiago.
Hosted by the Global Financial Markets Institute (GFMI), the even aims to help financial institutions in Latin America to examine the effectiveness of their current efforts and policies around model risk and develop better programs to minimize model risk.
