Credit Risk Rating Expert Interview
with Stefan Opferkuch, credit risk rating expert from Bosch Software Innovations
How to Apply Internal Rating Models for Assessment of Credit Risk
A borrower's default risk and loss severity are key factors of successful credit risk management and fundamental prerequisites for adequate credit portfolio management. The risk rating models that encompass key risk parameters are often complex and must be continually adapted to regulatory requirements and market dynamics.
In recent years, the Basel II Accord in particular has given rise to the need for continuous and costly development and improvement of risk rating models. Therefore, the possibility of applying internal rating models for credit risk assessment is of central importance.
