FRTB survey - banks making progress but with challenges remaining
Our survey of major banks shows they are making good progress towards the implementation of the FRTB but significant challenges remain in areas such as:
- IT architecture - banks are making major investments in their IT architecture to support FRTB and many are implementing completely new systems
- Modelling - modellability of risk factors continues to be an issue that many banks are struggling with
- P&L test - banks continue to be concerned that, despite their investment in modelling and IT, they may not pass the P&L test for certain trading desks and will be forced onto the Standardised Approach
