Rabobank - Python Training

On Monday February 11, Rabobank will organize a Python training for all econometrics students interested in learning how to work with this software! It will start at 17.00 hours and the training will take place in Cube Z213 at Tilburg University. The training will end at approximately 19.00 hours.

Rabobank is among the world’s largest banks in the world. To remain in the top, an important task for the Rabobank is predicting clients’ probability of making their contractual payments, and recover cash flows in the event that a customer defaults. Quantification of credit risk fundamental to many internal applications. Which clients should we allow to take out a loan? What rate should we charge these clients? When do we take action on a client, when a business is overdue on a contractual payment?

The Python training will focus on one of the keystones of these questions: What is the likelihood that a client will not be able to fulfil his loan payments? In this training we will create a Probability of Default (PD) model, to assess the quality of potential clients. Using a large dataset with more than a hundred variables and information on their empirical outcome, we will identify ways to maximize out of sample prediction power. Machine learning techniques can be used, among many other statistical analyses. The student is encouraged to find his/her own superior modelling techniques and get the highest score.
