FRTB Impact a Triple Threat, Finds ISDA

Share article

Final market risk capital rules will lead to a higher increase in bank capital requirements than previous estimates given by international regulators earlier this year, an undisclosed industry study has found, as reported by Risk.net – leading to concerns that the capital hike could force firms to scale back trading activities to meet the new rules.

In January 2019, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision estimated the new regime would result in a 22% weighted average increase in capital. But a recent study by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) found that the impact could in fact be three times higher than expected.
