The panel will discuss real-life encounters, experience and challenges with state-of-art quantitative risk tools and models of market risk, credit risk and systemic risk.  The panel will also discuss common problems with quantitative risk analysis like model suitability and missing data.  In addition, the panel will also share experience and provide advice to young professionals about career considerations as a quant in risk management.
