Quantitative models are omnipresent - but often controversially discussed - in todays risk management practice. New regulations, innovative ﬁnancial products, and advances in valuation techniques provide a continuous ﬂow of challenging problems for ﬁnancial engineers and risk managers alike. Designing a sound stochastic model requires ﬁnding a careful balance between parsimonious model assumptions, mathematical viability, and interpretability of the output. Moreover, data requirements and the end-user training are to be considered as well.The KPMG Center of Excellence in Risk Management conference Risk Management Reloaded and this proceedings volume contribute to bridging the gap between academia - providing methodological advances - and practice - having a ﬁrm understanding of the economic conditions in which a given model is used. Discussed ﬁelds of application range from asset management, credit risk, and energy to risk management issues in insurance. Methodologically, dependence modeling, multiple-curve interest rate-models, and model risk are addressed. Finally, regulatory developments and possible limits of mathematical modeling are discussed.
