Basel III Implementation: Tackling Capital, Collateral, Liquidity, Stress Testing and Enterprise Consistency Challenges in 2015 and Beyond
The intent of Basel III is a strengthened framework of international standards for bank capital adequacy and liquidity with the objective of preventing systemic failures like those seen across the banking sector during the 2008 crisis. While many of the goals behind Basel III — such as greater emphasis on Collateral, Stress Testing, CVA VaR, Liquidity Risk, and Capital Optimization — are clear, the implementation of such goals and measures, their intersections, and the resulting need for greater consistency across the banking enterprise remain a major challenge as 2015 begins.
Join Numerix and Chartis on Wednesday, January 21st at 10am EST as featured speakers Steven Rogers, Research Director, Chartis and Satyam Kancharla, Chief Strategy Officer & SVP of Client Solutions Group, Numerix discuss the latest research and trends across the industry around Basel III implementation as well as best practices for a Basel III implementation framework.
In the first part of our presentation Steven Rogers will present Chartis research and findings on:
- Capital optimization vs. Capital Adequacy
- Collateral optimization in the face of liquidity risk regulation
- Liquidity management with respect to the demands regulators have for increased reporting
- Stress testing increased frequency and scope
- Overlapping responsibilities of (a) Front-office, (b) Finance and Treasury and (c) Risk and Compliance
As institutions embark on implementing the necessary changes around Basel III, the focus is shifting from Compliance with regulatory mandates to Optimizing business lines and trade activity. In part two of our webinar, Satyam Kancharla will cover best practices for implementing these enterprise-wide changes from an analytics, technology, process and organizational perspective. He will address:
- Building a robust enterprise wide analytic framework
- Supporting stress testing on a consistent basis
- Managing the Regulatory Compliance vs Regulatory Optimization tradeoff
- Leveraging technology advancements to serve Risk analytics
- Aligning Processes and Organization to deliver Risk projects effectively
