Credit Risk Management
Traditional credit risk management involves the use of both qualitative and quantitative inputs, coming from several internal and external sources, and ultimately, it requires human judgment and overall conformity to the internal policies and risk appetite of the financial institution, as well as the observance of regulatory requirements.
As such, historical data can carry different types of biases, sometimes human-driven (consciously or unconsciously), sometimes simply derived from historical market conditions or prior internal policies.
With so many layers of complexity, ensuring a robust, fair, and accurate credit process, compliant with the upcoming regulatory requirements (EU AI Act) can be a real challenge for financial institutions, hampering efforts to achieve healthy and sustainable growth.
Incorporating AI into credit risk management processes provides undeniable benefits. It facilitates a more detailed risk assessment and a better distribution of risks. By shifting from an isolated transaction-based process to a comprehensive view of total risk exposure, AI can significantly enhance cost-income ratios, decrease the cost of capital, and the distribution of risk-weighted assets.
In addition to these advantages, one of the most critical aspects of responsible AI is its proactive nature. As new data becomes available, AI models can adjust and respond, effectively monitoring and managing evolving risk landscapes.
Crucially, responsible AI brings to the forefront the issues of fairness, ethical considerations, and integrity of data. It ensures that the algorithms used do not perpetuate bias and that decisions made are equitable and defensible. Responsible AI not only emphasizes the importance of the quality and integrity of data but also scrutinizes how this data interacts with AI models, thereby creating a more ethical and fair credit risk management process.
