Download a complimentary copy of Celent's latest report FRTB and the Upcoming Renaissance in Market Risk Management, Part 2 compliments of Numerix.

In this report, Celent examines Basel’s Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) market risk regulation as a catalyst for transformational change.

FRTB is setting in motion a trajectory that incentivizes firms to move toward stronger business and functional risk management capabilities built on sound data and analytical supply chains, “front-to-back-aligned” information delivery, with shareable service and process components enabling optimal trading, risk-aligned pricing, and governance. At the same time, through the clever exploitation of innovative, next-generation technologies, firms can achieve better performance, cost-efficiency, and “future-proofing” of risk IT investments.

As institutions are standing at the dawn of a new renaissance in market risk management — this research is a strategic and tactical guide based on implementation and solution evaluation best practices so far in the context of FRTB programs.

“As we look forward, we expect the IT foundations and business capabilities built in the course of addressing and complying with FRTB requirements to set the stage for next-generation capabilities for market risk management in the decade to come.” – Cubillas Ding, Research Director for CelentFigure 1: Deciding Your Firm’s Architectural Strategy
