Prof Diganta Saikia - Participation in World Finance Conference, 2015 Back
Prof Diganta Saikia from the department of finance participated in the World Finance & Banking Symposium which took place in Hanoi, Vietnam during December 17-18, 2015.
He chaired the first session of the conference on “Corporate Governance and Agency” where a number of brilliant papers were presented by a galaxy of academics.
He presented his paper titled “Model Risk and Validation Challenges Behind CCAR Models: Lessons from a US Regulatory experience”, which was very well-received. Prof Saikia’s paper has been one of the pioneering papers in the space of CCAR models.
Comprehensive Capital Analysis & Review (CCAR) is a supervisory assessment by the Federal Reserve of the capital planning processes and capital adequacy of the large, complex bank holding companies (BHCs). Fed expects large, complex BHCs to hold sufficient capital in order to maintain access to funding, to meet their obligations to creditors and counterparties, to continue operations, even under adverse economic situations. CCAR is the central mechanism of Fed for developing supervisory assessments of capital adequacy at these firms.
Prof Saikia was also a discussant for a paper on “Make in India; The Global Context”.
