AI and Machine Learning for Credit Rating Models: Part IV - A brief overview of the EBA’s follow-up report on machine learning for IRB models

Posted on Aug 11, 2023

The EBA recently released its much-anticipated follow-up report to its 2021 consultation on using machine learning (ML) for IRB models. The principle-based recommendations remain largely unchanged and are welcomed by the industry. We summarise the key points of the report including what firms are using or intending to use ML for, as well as the need for firms to consider other legal frameworks when using ML. Finally, we conclude with our own approach to developing compliant "synthetic" ML models for prudential purposes and how they can be used to overcome some of the challenges of using ML.
