Bios: From its origins in derivatives, quantitative models are used in a variety of contexts in the financial industry including fair valuation, risk measurement, and capital planning. As the usage of models increase, so also does the risk that models may not perform as intended. In this talk we provide a historical introduction to the topic, its evolution in the industry as well as recent trends.
