There remain many outstanding statistical challenges in modelling and estimating Credit Risk. In this workshop we will explore several of these challenges and offer some advanced and novel methods for tackling them. In particular, presentations will be given addressing statistical issues in: stress testing; model validation; the use of alternative distribution structures for modelling rare events; dynamic models allowing the inclusion of time-varying behavioural and macroeconomic conditions; and multivariate mixture regression models, enabling the decomposition of different aspects of credit risk.

This workshop will be of value to credit risk analysts and statisticians working in the financial industry.
