Credit Risk Rating Expert Interview
with Stefan Opferkuch, credit risk rating expert from Bosch Software Innovations
Transparent Implementation of Rating Models and their Seamless Deployment into Production
Traditional IT systems are too rigid and inflexible to meet the increasing demands of complexity, transparency and flexibility of internal risk rating models. With the Credit Risk Rating Platform, Bosch Software Innovations offers a platform that enables transparent implementation of rating models and their seamless deployment into production. The Credit Risk Rating Platform has a component-based architecture, which is depicted in the following figure:
Transparent Implementation of Credt Risk Rating Models
The Model Authoring Platform is the core component for creating and maintaining credit risk rating models. The Visual Rules Modeler offers a particularly intuitive approach to the graphical implementation of internal rating models. The representation of logic mimics human thought processes, making it extremely well suited for use by business people. Along with rating logic, the user interface elements are also specified. The results are rating models and the User Interface (UI) models that are required for seamless operationalization.
Dynamically Generate User Interfaces for Credit Analysts
Qualitative risk factors are often involved in the assessment of default probabilities, and loss severities and must be evaluated. To that end, the web-based user interface elements (such as data entry screens) required for the operational rating process are generated dynamically from the UI models. Model changes (for example, the addition of qualitative factors) can thus be transferred directly to the interface. The result? Maximum flexibility of both rating model and user interface.
Perform Credit Risk Ratings
The Rating Manager supports the credit analyst in performing and managing credit risk ratings in a web-based environment. This component provides the required menu structures to select the rating model and the dynamically generated interfaces for the data entry and results dialogs. Bosch Software Innovations’ Rating Manager can fulfill the most complex requirements of any rating process.
Archive Ratings in Compliance with Basel II
The Basel II Framework poses explicit requirements for the storage and archival of ratings. All ratings-relevant input and output data are archived in the Rating DB within the Credit Risk Rating Platform. By coupling with loss data, the rating models can be validated and backtested in any external statistics software.
Connect to External Databases and Systems
The Credit Risk Rating Platform from Bosch Software Innovations can be connected to a bank’s internal systems and data sources to facilitate bi-directional data exchange. External data providers (credit rating agencies, for instance) can also be connected to the platform.
