SPS Spotlight – FinTech and Financial Regulation

Streamed live on 15 Nov 2016

Columbia University School of Professional Studies presents
A Panel Discussion with Professor Sharyn O’Halloran, Thomas Deely, and Guests

A key issue for regulators and the financial service industry is mitigating systemic large-scale counterparty risk. Currently, individual financial institutions and regulators conduct systemic risk exposure analysis using proprietary models and data protocols absent any agreed upon baseline, best practices or public scrutiny. Without industry standards, shared benchmarks, or means to validate results, the impact of alternative policy interventions on the overall risk in the financial system remains uncertain.

This initiative showcases new open source analytical tools that develop highly granular trade and cross-asset class risk simulation and aggregate at the counterparty level. Bringing large-scale open source risk models to the public domain will enable a standard-based approach that facilitates research and greater understanding of the impact that policy levers have on the financial system.
