NEW YORK, February 14, 2019 – Moody’s Analytics, a global provider of financial intelligence, has been named a Category Leader in Model Validation Solutions, 2019, a new Chartis Research report that assesses 10 leading vendors of model validation solutions.

Model Validation Solutions, 2019 evaluates vendors on a set of seven core capabilities that include data input, model analytics/pricing, and suitability. Moody’s Analytics was the only vendor to be recognized for offering “best in class capabilities” in all seven categories.

New regulatory conditions like the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) accounting standard in the US and the European Central Bank’s Targeted Review of Internal Models (TRIM) program highlight the growing importance of model governance. Our award-winning model validation solutions – complemented by our advisory services – help firms meet those and a host of other requirements.

“We are delighted that our model validation solutions have earned us a Category Leader distinction from Chartis,” said Anamaria Pieschacon, Senior Economist, Model Validation at Moody’s Analytics. “Across the globe, clients rely on us to provide services and solutions to validate their models and govern the lifecycle of their analytics. Our input helps them refine their models, which allows them to make better, more informed decisions. This recognition from Chartis underscores the strength and breadth of our model validation capabilities, which cover both retail and commercial asset classes using both traditional and newer techniques such as machine learning.”

Last year, Chartis Research also recognized our CECL, Credit Risk (banking book), and Balance Sheet Management solutions with the Category Leader distinction in reports evaluating top vendors in those areas.

This recognition adds to a growing list of awards and accolades for Moody’s Analytics.
