Market Risk

Years of experience acquired in the capital market business make us the ideal partner when it comes to meeting individual challenges in the field of market risk.

Our services at a glance

Key points of the new market risk requirements:

  • Mandatory implementation of standardised approaches for all institutions, irrespective of whether internal models are being used; disclosure of results
  • Introduction of minimum capital requirements based on the standardised approaches if internally modelled approaches are being used (aggregated output floor)
  • Sensitivity-based methods in the standardised approaches under the FRTB and the CVA risk capital charge

Our focus areas for market risk:

  • Market risk in the trading book (FRTB, BCBS 424 or CRR II)
  • Market risk for counterparty risk (CVA risk capital charge, BCBS 325)
  • Interest rate risk in the banking book (IRRBB, BCBS 368)

We can support you in such projects as:

  • Design of functional and IT specifications
  • Development, implementation and integration of new market risk models and the requisite sensitivities
  • Assessment of the impact of regulatory requirements on trading and treasury activities, and development of a new target structure
