International Conference on Credit Analysis and Risk Management

4th International Conference on CREDIT ANALYSIS and RISK MANAGEMENT- Basel Workshop on Credit Risk

This conference is dedicated to special topics in credit risk measurement and management as well as to the discussion of causes and impacts of events on international financial markets and current regulatory activities in the field. Thereby, the conference is intended to expand the knowledge on the functioning of the credit business through discussion of both existing and new methods and models of credit analysis, credit risk management and related topics such as relationship lending and regulation.

  • Credit analysis and credit ratings
  • Credit portfolio models and limitations
  • Credit derivatives and structured finance
  • The future of regulation
  • Risk analysis and management
  • Credit rating agencies
  • Relationship lending


  • Speeches from financial practitioners and panel discussions
  • Presentations of academic papers
  • Conference Dinner on August 27, 2015
