Business Analytics and Testing

Offerings

Statistical Modeling

Banks and other FIs must meet a host of regulatory compliance requirements to prove their financial health in a crisis or comply with new accounting standards. Stress tests, for example, help these companies determine portfolio risks, their capital adequacy, and how their internal operations would fare against a financial disaster.

FRG can develop and implement models for satisfying risk assessment and risk quantification that meet business requirements and ensure compliance with regulations such as:

  • IFRS 9 or CECL
  • CCAR
  • Dodd-Frank Stress Testing
  • Basel

We also design, build, and implement models for use outside of regulatory restraints. Our specialized capabilities include experience in the Energy sectors, private equity funds, and commodity firms.

Machine Learning / Deep Learning

FIs increasingly understand that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms add value to business operations where efficiency, prediction and accuracy are most critical.

FRG combines data-centric architecture and technology fluency with modeling expertise to help your company drive business decisions and mitigate its financial risk with any AI or ML project.

Our services in this area include supervised and unsupervised learning algorithm development.

The FRG blog series, “Artificial Intelligence in Financial Institutions,” explores how these algorithms can help companies unlock the potential power of their data. Read it here
