Swiss Re Credit Risk Conference 2019 Challenges in Credit Risk: Risk Identification to Crisis Management

12 - 13 Mar 2019

Location: Rüschlikon/Zurich, Switzerland

About the event

Swiss Re's Credit Risk Management team is delighted to host its 2019 Credit Risk Conference, "Challenges in Credit Risk: Risk Identification to Crisis Management" and would like to extend this invitation to you. The event will be held on 13 March 2019 at the Centre for Global Dialogue in Rüschlikon, Switzerland, with a welcome apéro and dinner on 12 March.

This conference brings together senior experts in the field of credit risk management to foster the sharing of best practices, insights into emerging risks, as well as key challenges and solutions.

This year's agenda focuses on topics covering almost the entire credit risk management value chain, beginning with a discussion of emerging risks, and followed by two sessions covering distinct methodological approaches to credit risk analysis – scenario methodology and machine learning. The conference will conclude with an interactive session on crisis management readiness and best practices.

Participation is restricted to 30-35 participants by invitation only, allowing for a high level of interaction in a mixed workshop-panel format, and there are ample informal networking opportunities.
