Sovereign Credit Risk Seminar on 25-26 March 2020, Prague

The seminar covers relevant approaches of credit analysis that are useful to incorporate in a financial institution’s own internal rating model. Furthermore,  participants will deepen their expertise about credit risk for global banks and sovereign obligors.

Know-how about the rating agencies’ operating techniques will be transformed into practical tips about how internal rating models should assess credit risk and which factors need to be taken into account when analysing banks and sovereigns. Therefore when further discussing the availability of validated data, the participants instantly know where to find the right underling information for each of the rating factors, taking into account qualitative as well as quantitative data.

Overall this seminar leads participants to keep track of probability of default and helps to conceive an informed opinion about counterparties’ creditworthiness. This again, helps improve a financial institution’s own internal rating model, make it more robust and exceptionally forward-looking.
