FRTB Impact a Triple Threat, Finds ISDA

Share article

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.
