Important Trends Transforming Credit Risk Management

Banking CIO Outlook | Tuesday, February 01, 2022

The regulation will continue to grow in response to a variety of factors. First, since the global financial crisis, the public and governments have become less tolerant of bank failures.

Fremont, CA: Credit risk management can be defined as the process by which a bank measures, manages, and monitors its exposures in order to achieve the desired return on capital. Credit risk managers are responsible for making decisions that affect the composition and performance of loans.

Continued Growth of the Breadth and Depth of Regulation

The regulation will continue to grow in response to a variety of factors. First, since the global financial crisis, the public and governments have become less tolerant of bank failures. On the one hand, public bodies are policing unethical behavior much more strictly now than they were before 2008. On the other hand, governments increasingly require both domestic and global compliance with their regulatory standards. As a result, laws, and regulations with extraterritorial effects are becoming more common.

Technology and Analytics

New technologies will impact not only customer expectations but also on risk management techniques. For starters, a massive amount of data is available and easily accessible to banks. Faster and less expensive computing power enables banks to process that data, make better credit-risk decisions, and monitor portfolios for detecting financial crimes and predicting operational losses. As a result of machine learning, data elaboration is becoming increasingly sophisticated. With each new piece of information they receive, these models learn and improve their predictive power over time. Some banks have begun to test machine-based collection and fraud detection processes. Finally, the internet allows businesses to crowdfund ideas to improve their efficiency in specific areas.
