Finalyse’s ‘Model Validation’ service determines whether the models supporting your business decisions and the monitoring framework that assures their reliability are methodologically sound and compliant with relevant regulations such as Basel III or your internal standards. In addition, this service provides you with a comparison to industry best practices. The resulting ‘Validation Report’ gives you an independent and detailed assessment of your models and the related infrastructure. It identifies the strong and weak points of your models, their fit to your environment and actions for improvement.
You will benefit from the sound track record of Finalyse of more than 20 successful projects in regulatory and internal compliance gap analysis, qualitative and quantitative analysis of IRB & IFRS9 models (incl. existing scorecards, PD, LGD, EAD/CF), IRRBB, Market Risk (FRTB, VaR, Stress Testing), Fraud, Machine Learning and other models.

Machine learning is today’s buzzword and it has gone through some phenomenal changes over the last few years. However, despite widespread adoption, machine learning models remain mostly black boxes. Hence it is essential to have techniques for explaining these black boxes in an interpretable manner. This article looks at the methods that are most used for interpreting machine learning models: SHAP, LIME and CP Profiles. It discusses advantages and drawbacks of each and shows how are they being used in practice.Read
