Data Management Implications of the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book

Data management for the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) poses problems around identification of risk factors, non-modellable risk factors, internal modelling and regulatory reporting, but solutions can be found by starting early, focussing on data requirements and working with third-party data providers.

The data management challenges and opportunities of FRTB were discussed during a recent A-Team Group webinar. The webinar was moderated by A-Team editor Sarah Underwood and joined by Greg Van Droogenbroeck, head of regulatory products at Bloomberg; Selwyn Blair-Ford, a financial regulatory specialist; and Jerry Goddard, director of the risk data aggregation and risk reporting framework at Santander UK.
