The outlook for 2021 – FRTB

This three-part audiocast series explores some of the key topics and evolving challenges that will shape the agenda for capital markets participants in 2021.

This final episode considers market risk and the outlook for the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB). Like many regulations, FRTB has been some time in the making, with Covid-19 forcing a further delay in the timeline. But the clock is ticking in Europe and the US in particular, with regulators stating their intention to start reviewing bank’s implementations this year.

Eugene Stern, head of market risk products at Bloomberg, reveals how banks are adapting their strategies in the current environment, and why FRTB affords banks a unique opportunity to develop a unified view on market risk and enhance their overall risk capabilities.
