Wolters Kluwer Financial Services announced today that Will Newcomer, vice president of product and strategy, U.S. Risk & Compliance, will speak at Stress Testing USA 2015: DFAST Edition, hosted by the Center for Financial Professionals on Oct. 27-28 in New York City.
Newcomer will be joined by co-presenter Brian Wyremski, quantitative risk modeling manager for New York-based Signature Bank. During their presentation, “Effectively Using Vendor Models and Ensuring They Work for the Portfolio,” on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 3:55 p.m. EDT, Newcomer and Wyremski will provide guidance on managing portfolio risk. In the session, the presenters will help attendees learn to evaluate vendor models to ensure appropriateness, target and assess model issues or errors, and determine strategies for dealing with uncertainties using only limited information.
