Credit Risk Management
Credit Risk Management is highly dependent on obtaining accurate and timely credit risk ratings of the counterparties, establishing a strong counterparty risk rating model that can rate various aspects of the counterparty risk (Marco, Financial and Operational) and monitor the risk exposure in real time. A good Credit Risk Management Software that captures the entire lifecycle of the Credit Risk Management is an important aspect of any risk management.
Main Components of Credit Risk Management
Boards of companies should understand the inherent risk in the business model and then establish risk appetites and tolerances and set expectations for management in taking and managing Credit risk
Boards of financial institutions are ultimately responsible for risk management. To be effective and influential, boards must be properly and regularly informed of institutional risks and trends, as well as the efficacy of risk management policies, processes and practices. This includes:
- Evaluation of Risk Culture: An institution’s risk standards should be in line with the organization, management reporting, communications, compensation and reward structures. Often, these are not in sync.
- Policies and Procedures: Proper communication of Policies and their formal communication and adoption is an important aspect of staying within the risk appetite of the firm. When policies are not clearly defined or communicated, there is room for misinterpretation, exposing firms to greater or unknown or undimensioned risks.
A number of start-ups as well as small-to-mid-size organizations either do not have Credit Risk Rating Models or the knowledge of Credit Modeling and mitigation. As a result of this, their exclusive business focus makes risk management take a back seat. Management must take a serious look at their risk modeling and counterparty credit sizing to mitigate risk.
Risk Reporting has to be current and should provide line managers and risk managers the necessary portfolio intelligence to manage risk and take risk mitigating actions. It should also provide Senior Management and the Board with a snapshot of the portfolio and the risks. RiskCounts' Credit Risk Rating Models can help in this area.
