Gamma is Management Solutions’ answer to
the challenges observed regarding model
risk management and its governance processes
By means of these functionalities, Gamma overcomes the challenges observed in the industry:
Lack of a comprehensive and integrated view of the status of all models within the institution.
Lack of standardization when applying model risk policies and inappropriate segregation of duties.
Model information scattered among different groups, generating knowledge silos and inefficiencies when developing and reviewing models.
Difficulty to prioritize and identify material issues and model dependencies that will generate regulatory pressure.
Limitations to the visualization of the model development, validation and deployment timelines to actively manage the model plan.
Disconnection between the tools used in the model field: model governance, model monitoring, campaign managers, etc.
Gamma allows for the effective management of model risk and the processes involved
