Market risk exposure jumps to $673 million, the highest level on record

Northern Trust’s capital charges for market risk hit an all-time high in the second quarter, with requirements nine times larger than those incurred in Q1.

The custodian recorded a total of $673 million in market risk-weighted assets (RWAs) at the end of June, up from $70 million at end-March and more than double the previous record high set in Q4 2020. The bank reported the same RWAs amount under both the standardised and advanced approaches.
