Model validation is an important component of proper asset/liability management. An independent validation helps to ensure that well-grounded principles are used in formulating and evaluating risk positions, as well as forward balance sheet projections, through a complex cash-flow model. A model validation is achieved by structuring a detailed review of three major model components: logic, information input and information output.
Sound modeling practices suggest an independent model validation every two years.
