Our mission

To embed trust in an algorithm-driven world

Yields is a forward-looking company on a mission to empower organizations to trust their algorithms and lead them to responsible data-driven decision making.

Our story & values

In 2017, Jos Gheerardyn and Sébastien Viguié co-founded Yields.io. After many years of experience in banking, Jos and Sebastien witnessed the growing dependency of financial institutions on models for decision making. Furthermore, the introduction of advanced analytic techniques – such as Machine Learning – in models led to new challenges to manage model risk.

Driven by the potential financial damage caused by the usage of models that are not fit for purpose or are wrongfully implemented, there is increasing pressure from regulatory bodies to implement a Model Risk Management framework. The framework incorporates guiding principles for organizations to develop, validate, and monitor models. The full model lifecycle typically is a manual and expensive process that is often supported by technology unable to cope with the increasing complexity and versatility of models.

This is why we have created Chiron, an award-winning data science platform to streamline your model lifecycle. With Chiron, we are living up to our mission to embed trust in an algorithm-driven world.
