The Fundamental Review of the Trading Book: Key Challenges Causing Implementation Headaches

Even before the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) rules were all but finalized earlier this year, there was a strong industry consensus that it will force a dramatic shift in the design and maintenance of risk systems at banks. As clarity on the requirements has improved and as the implementation dates grow nearer, the finer details of the new standards are being analyzed with increased vigor. As a result, a number of key concerns have been flagged by the industry.

On October 12, 2016 featured speaker Dr. Andrew McClelland discussed some of the concerns and challenges practitioners are experiencing and their implications for FRTB implementations.

Dr. McClelland addressed the following topics:

  • Main elements of the FRTB-Market risk and FRTB-CVA risk timelines and tie-ins with bilateral margin requirements
  • Broad structure of the revised capital framework and specifics for new and revised elements
  • Overview of the FRTB-Market Risk complications: P&L attribution requirements and the residual risk add-on
  • Review of the FRTB-CVA complications: calculation of CVA sensitivities and the impact of initial margin
  • Closing conclusions: initial margin impact on dealer costs and the margin valuation adjustments
