In Case You Missed It...



Course 1: Model Risk Management (MRM)

Model Risk Management (MRM) has evolved and the rules under which all models are governed has benefited every part of the bank. Join BDO’s Valuation & Business Analytics practice to break down some of the adjustments to overall risk calculations and what they mean for the banking industry.


Course 2: Use of Non-Traditional Valuation Metrics

Thursday, February 6

Is history repeating itself? Gain an understanding of the market and find out what’s happening with the trends of the late 90s and early 2000s and see if history is repeating itself. Join BDO’s Valuation & Business Analytics practice to uncover how the use of non-traditional valuation methods are evolving, what is the comparability of these metrics, and the increasing need for proper due diligence.


Course 3: Understanding and Addressing the LIBOR / SOFR Transition

There is substantial risk to loans, mortgages, securities, derivatives and other financial instruments as LIBOR is expected to be discontinued or modified by 2021. As this deadline is fast approaching, which could require a lengthy transition process to alter multiple LIBOR related facets to a post LIBOR environment, the steps involved can be very daunting. Join BDO’s Valuation & Business Analytics practice to break down the events, identify the exposures, and learn what a transition project entails and how to broach the topic with clients.
