The post-crisis regulatory reform highlighted an increasing focus of the regulators on the capital requirements for trading book activities (Market Risk and Market Value of Counterparty Risk).
The Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) will have profound consequences on the way market risk capital is calculated for trading businesses. It changes every aspect of market risk models, introducing a new and more sophisticated Standardised Approach as well as making fundamental changes to internal models. Furthermore, it redefines the boundary between the trading book and banking books having significant implications for desk structures.
In December 2017, the BCBS finalized the Basel III framework and published the revised CVA framework. The revised CVA framework confirms the elimination of internal models for CVA risks, mandating the use of the standardized (SA-CVA) and basic (BA-CVA) approaches.
ISDA leads the industry working groups on trading book capital and the conference speakers are all expert practitioners who have been directly involved in the development and evolution of the financial regulation.
