Mr. Sandip Mukherjee Co-founder, COO & Principal Consultant at Aptivaa was keynote speaker at PRMIA (Professional Risk Managers' International Association) Qatar Chapter event titled “Impairment Modeling Demystified - Implementing IFRS 9” at the Q-Tel Tower, West Bay, Doha. He was speaking on the role of risk management in the context of IFRS 9 and detailed out the range of methodologies available to model impairment components such as PIT PD Calibration, PD Term Structures, Macroeconomic Adjustment ,LGD Estimation etc. As the guidelines don’t prescribe any specific methodologies, the session helped the participants to familiarize with best practices and their applicability at their banks. Aptivaa extends its sincerest thanks to PRMIA Qatar Chapter Regional Directors: Dr. Joseph Elias Masri ( Head of Risk Management, Qatar Investment Authority) and Dr. Ali Al Amari (Senior Director of Supervision and Authorization, Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority) as well as the Steering Committee members Gerard A Greene, Adrienne Betts and others for making this valuable opportunity available to us.
