Session #2 Guests




Perttu Korhonen

Associate Director- Financial Analysis and Innovation, Supervision and Authorisation Division, Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority

Perttu Korhonen is a leader, visionary and practitioner in SupTech having driven and delivered change in regulatory and central banking analytics over 15 years in Finland, Germany, UK and Qatar.


Numerous solutions have benefited from Prettu’s ability to combine risk-based supervision, supervisory banking analytics, and econometric modelling with creative applications of data science techniques such as visual analytics, entity resolution, spatial data analysis, supervised machine learning, pattern/anomaly detection, timeseries forecasting, network analysis and natural language processing. 


He has also played key roles in developing data strategies and data models for data-driven policy making and market oversight. Spearheaded the movement towards granular, or micro data, for supervisory and statistical purposes – and the development of effective, advanced methods for detecting patterns in such large and open ended datasets. 


Ultimately, supervision – just like any other public policy – will become augmented by AI. Supervisors will spend less time managing information and more time assessing the alternative paths and making decisions. The recommendations by algorithms just must always be backed with reasoning that is meaningful for humans. The recommendations must always be presented with their assumptions and risks so that the supervisors are well equipped to make choices between them.


Clara Machado

Head of Financial Infrastructure Oversight Department, Banco de la Republica
