The new market risk capital charge, FRTB, is forcing banks to review every aspect of the current market risk calculation ahead of the implementation deadline.
Compliance for FRTB and beyond
To help banks ensure their operations and infrastructure are ready in time, Fusion Risk has been designed to deliver a scalable, modular package that is available off the shelf. The solution provides the full front-to-risk alignment required by FRTB, including the necessary connectivity to third-party or other in-house solutions, and monitoring and reporting capabilities.
The solution also extends beyond FRTB. To help customers meet the demands of increasing regulation, which are often coupled with pressures to transform the business, Fusion Risk has been developed to quickly adapt to FRTB and other market practices while minimizing costs and disruption. The solution is designed to incorporate wider transformative activities, such as the valuation of collateral, introducing global limits or overall better capital planning to optimize treasury operations.

What are the aims of FRTB?
FRTB aims to deliver more consistency in capital treatment and less variation between institutions, markets, and products. The regulation mandates a clear segregation of all instruments belonging to the trading and banking books and has the potential to substantially increase a bank’s capital requirements.
