Financial firms are facing significant challenges when it comes to measuring and assessing risk from counterparties. In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, progress measuring the broad array of financial transactions with other institutions remains uneven and progress toward consistent, timely and accurate reporting of top counterparty exposures has yet to fall in line with regulatory standards as well as industry best practices. The area of greatest concern remains firms’ inability to quantify counterparty risk consistently produce high-quality data on a regular basis.
