RegTech Insight Webinars Countdown:

Upcoming Webinar: FRTB: What still needs to be done before the global deadline of January 2023?

8 March 2022

Date: 8 March 2022
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET
Duration: 50 minutes

While implementation of Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) regulation has been delayed twice for reasons first of complexity and second of the coronavirus pandemic, the final deadline of January 1, 2023 is less than a year away. For banks in scope of the regulation, the time to put necessary risk infrastructure and data management processes in place to achieve compliance is now – but there are challenges.

Many banks still need to finalise decisions on which of their trading desks will adopt the complex Internal Model Approach (IMA) to calculating market risk capital requirements and which the less complex Standard Approach (SA). Decisions must also be taken on how to source the vast amounts of internal and external data, including data never previously required, needed to meet reporting obligations. Differing jurisdictional interpretations of elements of the regulation add to the challenges – but there are solutions.

Register for the webinar to find out more about:

  • The FRTB implementation and reporting timeline
  • Outstanding challenges that must be addressed
  • Approaches to complex data sourcing requirement
  • Helpful technologies, tools, services and solutions
  • Benefits of getting FRTB right, penalties of getting it wrong
