NEWS | For Immediate Release

NEW YORK, August 7, 2017 – Emerging technologies are changing how we approach risk management in banking. In this edition of Moody's Analytics Risk Perspectives, our theme is managing disruption, helping risk practitioners respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by disruptive technologies.

“We are operating in a constantly changing environment – whether from evolving regulations, new technologies, or other forces. The ability to manage change is an ever more critical skill for risk professionals,” said Anna Krayn, Editor-in-Chief of Risk Perspectives, the company’s flagship publication. “In this edition, our experts address such topics as: How does machine learning impact the commercial loan credit risk assessment process? How are data quality and productivity in risk management related? How can banks adapt their small business lending strategies to compete with alternative lenders?”

With this edition, Risk Perspectives has been expanded to include an op-ed section. This section features practitioners writing on issues such as the effects of innovation on financial services, the impact of ride-sharing services on auto production, and new approaches to risk management as Dodd-Frank stress testing matures.

You can access Risk Perspectives online at no cost. Other articles in this issue include:
