Implementing Basel IV in Asia-Pacific – Mapping out the next steps

The panel

  • Sam Mukhopadhyay, Director, Risk and Finance, Asia-Pacific, Wolters Kluwer
  • Michiel Haasbroek, Former Chief Risk Officer, ABN Amro, and Visiting Research Fellow, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
  • Campbell Nicoll, Chief Risk Officer, Regional Australia Bank
  • Moderator: Blake Evans-Pritchard, Bureau Chief, Asia, Risk.net

Basel IV works to narrow the gap between the internal ratings-based (IRB) approach and the standardised approach for calculating risk-weighted assets (RWAs). As banking systems across the Asia-Pacific region (Apac) are not uniform in IRB usage levels, this region-wide variation means that banks in different jurisdictions will be affected differently.

This webinar explores the current pain points and provides insights on Basel IV implementation in Apac, addressing the most common challenges and what it takes to transform to a Basel IV-compliant financial institution.

Key topics discussed:

  • Market-specific risk drivers
  • Key implications of the change to current practices and business models
  • How financial institutions can prepare to adopt and implement these changes
  • Impacts across business units and overall capital management
  • Key challenges to technical implementation around data, models, methodologies and new technology
  • How financial institutions can address data quality, transparency, auditability and lineage to improve the accuracy of intermediate and final RWA calculations.
