Working Groups

Members' needs for discussion of best practice in data, modelling and risk measurement is well served by ad hoc working groups.  Often the key benefit of these groups is the discussion and cross information about best practices, while some will also produce an output paper.

Recently completed working groups covered the topics of:

- Stresstesting and CCAR modelling (Framework, Processes, Modelling techniques)
- Modelling LGD for Commercial Real Estate
- Modelling LGD for Project Finance
- Modelling Downturn LGD
- Discount Rate in LGD modelling
- Segmentation of LGD models
- Trade & Commodity Finance 
- Banks and Counterparties in Financial Markets

The following working groups are at the moment active within Global Credit Data.  For some working groups non member participation is allowed.  Please consult Global Credit Data using the contact form should you be interested.
