A-Team Insight Webinars Countdown:

Upcoming Webinar: FRTB: Laying the groundwork for compliance

6 June 2019

Date: 6 June 2019
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET.

The January 2022 compliance deadline for sell-side firms within the scope of Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) regulation may seem far into the future, but the complex demands of the regulation and the need to source regulatory data that has never previously been required mean firms should already be identifying tools, solutions and partners to achieve compliance.

Still more pressing, firms taking an Internal Model Approach (IMA) to market risk capital calculations must run their models for a year in advance of the 2022 deadline in order to gain regulatory approval.

This webinar will discuss the fundamental requirements of FRTB and how they differ from those of the Basel 2.5 market risk framework. It will also consider best practice approaches to compliance, how to decide whether to run an IMA or a Standardised Approach (SA) on each trading desk, and how FRTB could change the trading landscape.

Register for the webinar to find out more about:

  • Details of the regulation’s requirements
  • How best your firm can approach compliance
  • Implications of selecting IMA or SA models
  • Tools and solutions to support your programme
  • Benefits of implementation beyond compliance
