Why attend?

Over the past three years industry professionals have actively been working towards FRTB compliance and setting-up the relevant infrastructure, resource and governance. It can be said that the path towards implementation has thus far been challenging and included regulatory uncertainty and delays. As the timelines grow ever smaller focus has shifted from review and analysis to practical application, for many financial institutions they are now ramping up for the final push towards the end goal.

However there are still several disparities and unanswered questions surrounding the standard which require further clarification. For example the general implementation plan has raised concern and many firms are considering timelines for adoption, data management practices and the best approaches to modelling. In addition, it still unknown how FRTB will interact with the business and impact products, trading and other regulatory regimes. Addressing these issues now will assist in creating a fluid transition plan and implementation process.
