The model validation team is the essential team to ensure the viability, robustness and reliability of the FO pricing models before they can be used for production purpose. All the new FO models/methodologies or any methodological changes should be validated by the team. For each validation request, the team analyses the assumptions and the proposed model/methodology to verify the theoretical relevance to the problem it is designed to address. Then tests and analysis will be done to check the implementation as well as the behaviours of the model/methodology in terms of robustness and reliability. As long as it is possible,
in particular for important pricing models, the team will re implement the model in the team’s internal library which covers all the asset classes (IR, FX, Hybrid, equity, XVA, credit). The whole study is expected to challenge all the aspects of the model/methodology and its numerical  implementation. Moreover, the team exchanges closely with FO Research team and Trading
desk on a large range of topics related to models & methodologies.

In addition, basic skills of programming are also required in order to implement models.
